In 11 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, Drew Pearson rose from unknown to legend. A former undrafted free agent, Pearson was named to the All-Decade Team of the 1970s as he earned a niche as one of the top clutch receivers in football history. He led the team in receptions and receiving yards four consecutive seasons (1974-77) and recorded two 1,000-yard campaigns. He has a resume filled with memorable game winning catches. In 1980 he became the all-time leading receiver in receptions, and in 1983, he took the top spot for receiving yards. He is littered through team and league postseason record books, including a catch in a club-record 22 consecutive playoff games. He was a key member of the 1977 Super Bowl XXII Championship squad. Inducted during halftime of the Cowboys Seahawks game on Nov. 6, 2011.
