Chuck Howley, All-American LB out of West Virginia, was selected in the 1st round of the 1958 NFL draft by the Chicago Bears. After suffering a career threatening knee injury, he decided to retire at the end of the 1959 season. In 1961, Howley decided to give football another shot, and the Cowboys gave him that shot. It certainly worked out well for the Cowboys as Howley played for 13 years, earning Pro-Bowl honors six times. Chuck holds the distinction of being the only player on a loosing team to win MVP honors of a Super Bowl (Super Bowl V). During his 15 year NFL career, Chuck intercepted 25 passes and returned two for TDs, he also recovered 17 fumbles and returned one of those for a TD. Chuck became the 4th member of the Cowboys Ring of Honor when he was inducted in 1977.
