Former Cowboys, 49ers OL Larry Allen dies at 52

The Dallas Cowboys on Monday announced the death of Pro Football Hall of Fame offensive lineman Larry Allen at age 52. No cause of death has been reported.

Allen spent his first 12 NFL seasons with the Cowboys before finishing his career with two seasons in San Francisco. In Dallas Allen won one Super Bowl while earning seven All-Pro nods and 10 trips to the Pro Bowl. His 11th Pro Bowl came as a member of the 49ers at age 35.
