  2. I look forward to the answer. I have no idea. I did way too much research and couldn't come up with a reasonable answer. Jerry Rhome? The cleats, the facemask, the blue wall in the back that makes it seem like they are at Texas Stadium - I'm guessing it's in the 1971-76 years. I didn't know if the image had been reversed, but the 17 shows correctly and the left handed. Maybe Rayfield Wright at RT?

  3. It is neither Meredith nor Rhome. Rayfield Wright is the RT----

    Hint, it is a preseason game

  4. Jim Zorn, the last player cut by the Cowboys in 1975.

  5. I have no doubt that Jim Zorn is the correct answer (well done, Brad!) but his face, what we can see of it, doesn't really look like Zorn and his shoes are straight out of the 60s.
