Jay Novacek


In 1990, the Dallas Cowboys signed Jay Novacek as a Plan B free agent. He was named the starter at tight end. He would go on to have a break-out season, becoming one of the league’s top receiving tight ends, while registering 59 receptions for 657 yards and 4 touchdowns. He was a key contributor for the offense in the early nineties, especially on third downs where he could find the soft spot in the defense. Beginning in 1991, he played in five straight Pro Bowls, while helping the Cowboys make the playoffs each year and winning the Super Bowl three times in four seasons.

In 1992, he was named an All-Pro after leading all tight ends with 68 receptions for 630 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns. In 1995, he posted his second-highest single-season total for receptions (62) and touchdowns (5), to go along with a career-high in receiving yards (705). He underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee to repair a partial tear of his medial meniscus before the last game of the season, [11] but still helped beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX.
