“We are very excited about being named to play in the Hall of Fame Game this year,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “When we learned that Jimmy Johnson would be involved in the August (and not September) ceremony in Canton, we approached the Hall of Fame and expressed a strong interest in being a part of honoring his legacy and induction by bringing our team and Cowboys fans to Canton.”

The Cowboys and Steelers each have representatives that will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. Pittsburgh has former head coach Bill Cowher and safety Troy Polamalu that will be enshrined two days following the game. Meanwhile, safety Donnie Shell will be inducted on Sept. 17 as one of the 10 seniors selected for the Centennial Celebration.
