Cowboys Hall of Fame OL Rayfield Wright dies at 76


Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame offensive tackle Rayfield Wright died Thursday, his wife Di told the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was 76 years old.

The three-time All-Pro and Hall All-Decade Team member for the 1970s had been hospitalized for several days after a severe seizure, Hall reported.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones released a statement honoring Wright, calling the six-time Pro Bowl lineman the “embodiment” of a Hall of Famer.

“His courage, agility, passion, charisma and love for football, the community and his family always shined through,” Jones said in the statement. “Rayfield has been a champion on and off the pitch. He remained an important part of the Cowboys family long after his playing days were over, and he will be deeply missed.
