Ed "Too Tall" Jones Bio

Ed Lee "Too Tall" Jones was given the nickname "Too Tall" due to his height, an impressive 6'10", tall even by modern football player standards. During the 1970's, he was extremely above average height for a football player; neither of his parents were above six feet in height.

He graduated from the Merry High School in Jackson and attended Tennessee State University. Jones was the number one draft choice of the NFL in 1974.

Jones played defensive end for the Dallas Cowboys from 1974 through 1978, attempted a professional boxing career winning all of his bouts in 1979, and returned to Dallas to play for the Cowboys from 1980 through 1989. He was named All Pro in 1981 and 1982, and played in 16 playoff games, including three Super Bowls. Jones played on three NFC champion teams and the 1978 Super Bowl winner. He retired in 1989 after 15 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys (though he retired earlier for one season to pursue a short-lived boxing career, then returned).

Jones, Bill Bates, and Mark Tuinei are the only players in Cowboys history to play for the franchise for 15 seasons.
