Cowboys Honoring Dat Nguyen Saturday

This from the Cowboys today:

The Dallas Cowboys will honor retired linebacker Dat Nguyen at the beginning of halftime during Saturday night’s game with the San Francisco 49ers at Texas Stadium. Nguyen retired in the spring after seven years with the organization.

Following a stellar career at Texas A&M, Nguyen was selected in the third round of the 1999 NFL by Dallas. He went on to start 65 of his 90 career games with the Cowboys before a series of injuries forced his premature retirement this year. He closed his career in Dallas with 665 career tackles, 34 tackles for lost yardage, 30 pass break-ups and seven interceptions. He had three seasons of at least 100 tackles and was the club’s leading tackler in all three of his final seasons where he played in 16 games (2004, 2003 and 2001).
