ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he’s close to announcing the next member of the team’s Ring of Honor. And maybe two.

Jones said Saturday that a news conference will be held within 10 days.

Jones hasn’t picked anyone to be enshrined since adding Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin in 2005.

Speculation has centered on receiver Drew Pearson. But Jones hinted there could be more than one honoree, and-or that the pick could be former offensive line standout Larry Allen.

Allen was at the preseason opener Thursday night, and Jones said, “Certainly we had a guy around here this weekend that is somebody that is probably a first-rounder in the Hall of Fame.”
