On Tuesday, the NFL announced the 28 modern-era semifinalists to make the Hall of Fame’s 2023 class. The list included three former Dallas Cowboys.

Here’s the entire roster of players that made the cut:

DeMarcus Ware

Ware was taken by Dallas with the 11th overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. The former Auburn Tiger wore the star on his helmet from 2005 to 2013 before finishing his career with the Denver Broncos.

Ware spent three seasons in the Mile High City, tallying 21.5 sacks and earning a well-deserved Super Bowl ring.

Ware’s 138.5 career sacks ranks ninth in NFL history, and he’s the Cowboys all-time leader in the statistic. Ware was also a four-time All-Pro and nine-time Pro Bowler.

Darren Woodson

Woodson was the Cowboys second-round selection in the 1992 NFL Draft. He played until 2003, spending the entirety of his 12-year career in Big D.

In franchise history, Woodson ranks 10th with 23 interceptions, and sixth with 12 forced fumbles.

The Phoenix native was a three-time Super Bowl champion, three-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler.

Zach Thomas

Thomas spent the majority of his career with the Miami Dolphins

Thomas spent 12 seasons in South Beach and amassed 617 tackles, the most in Dolphins history. He was a member of the NFL’s All-2000s Hall of Fame team.
Thomas spent just one season in Dallas before retiring. In 16 games, he recorded 94 total tackles, four tackles for loss and one sack.
