Four receivers are left vying for the final two spots in the list, with two still active in Dallas uniform. But, for now, Hill has at least another couple of years in the fourth position.
Despite coming in on the tail end of Staubach’s career and playing in the shadow of Drew Pearson, Hill managed to put up outstanding numbers over his 10 seasons. Hill just missed finishing with 8,000 career yards by just a dozen, and still ranks third all-time in career receiving yards and career touchdowns for the Cowboys.
Hill did collect a Super Bowl ring in his rookie year, but made little impact in the stat book for the 1977 season. And despite some impressive stats, Hill’s name is nowhere to be found on the Ring of Honor. Whether or not it ever gets there or how long he’ll keep his place on the list of all-time receiving leaders remains to be seen.
