Legend to Legend: James Lofton with Bob Lilly

11/06/2012

Every week, Pro Football Hall of Famer and Westwood One Sunday Night Football analyst James Lofton sits down with a fellow Hall of Famer “Legend to Legend.”

In the week’s installment, James catches up with Dallas Cowboys great Bob Lilly.

Lilly, who came to be known as “Mr. Cowboy,” was Dallas’ first-ever draft pick in 1961 and went on to play 14 seasons as a defensive tackle for the team. He was named to 11 Pro Bowls.

Bob Lilly was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980.
