Fine list of players. I'd put this list of players against any other teams.

The Dallas Cowboys have had many legendary players throughout their history. Here are some of the greatest Dallas Cowboys players of all time:
  1. Roger Staubach: Staubach is widely regarded as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. He led the Cowboys to two Super Bowl victories (VI and XII) and was known for his ability to engineer come-from-behind victories.
  2. Emmitt Smith: Smith is the NFL's all-time leading rusher and was the cornerstone of the Cowboys' dominant offense in the 1990s. He played a vital role in the team's three Super Bowl victories (XXVII, XXVIII, and XXX).
  3. Troy Aikman: Aikman was the quarterback during the Cowboys' dynasty of the 1990s. He led the team to three Super Bowl wins (XXVII, XXVIII, and XXX) and was known for his accuracy and leadership on the field.
  4. Michael Irvin: Irvin was the emotional leader of the Cowboys' dominant offense in the 1990s. He was a key component of the team's three Super Bowl victories (XXVII, XXVIII, and XXX) and was known for his exceptional route-running and big-play ability.
  5. Bob Lilly: Known as "Mr. Cowboy," Lilly was the anchor of the Cowboys' defense in the 1960s and 1970s. He was the first player inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame who spent his entire career with the Cowboys and was a key part of the team's Super Bowl VI victory.
  6. Randy White: White, also known as the "Manster," was a dominant defensive tackle for the Cowboys. He played a crucial role in the team's Super Bowl XII victory and was a nine-time Pro Bowler.
  7. Tony Dorsett: Dorsett was a dynamic running back who played for the Cowboys from 1977 to 1987. He helped the team win Super Bowl XII and was known for his speed and elusiveness.
  8. Larry Allen: Allen was a dominant offensive lineman who played for the Cowboys from 1994 to 2005. He was known for his strength and athleticism and was a key part of the team's success in the 1990s, including their Super Bowl XXX victory.
  9. Mel Renfro: Renfro was a versatile defensive back who played for the Cowboys from 1964 to 1977. He was a 10-time Pro Bowler and played a significant role in the team's Super Bowl VI victory.
  10. Deion Sanders: Sanders played for the Cowboys from 1995 to 1999 and was one of the most electrifying players in NFL history. He helped the team win Super Bowl XXX and was known for his exceptional speed and coverage skills.
These are just a few of the greatest Dallas Cowboys players of all time, and there are many other notable players who have contributed to the team's success over the years.

Deion was a mercenary and nothing else.
Some consider Deion a mercenary, can you argue that point?

Slow day at work for me lol. Pretty amazing they have all this info in there already.

Yes, there is a perspective among some fans and analysts that Deion Sanders was a "mercenary" during his career. This perception stems from his tendency to sign with teams based on financial incentives and his willingness to switch teams multiple times throughout his career.
Here are a few arguments that support the notion that Deion Sanders could be seen as a mercenary:
  1. Frequent team switches: Sanders played for five different teams during his NFL career: the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Commanders, and Baltimore Ravens. This frequent switching of teams could be interpreted as prioritizing financial gain and personal success over team loyalty.
  2. Financial motivations: Sanders was one of the highest-paid players of his era and was known for negotiating lucrative contracts. He often pursued opportunities that offered him the most significant financial compensation, which some view as prioritizing money over team loyalty or a long-term commitment to a franchise.
  3. Dual-sport career: In addition to playing football, Sanders also played professional baseball concurrently. Some argue that his dual-sport career further reinforces the notion that he was motivated by financial gain and personal success rather than a deep commitment to a specific team or organization.
  4. Public persona: Sanders had a flashy and larger-than-life persona, often referring to himself as "Prime Time." This self-promotion and focus on his personal brand could be seen as evidence of a mercenary mindset, as he seemed to prioritize his individual success and image.
However, it is important to note that there are counterarguments to the notion of Deion Sanders being solely a mercenary:
  1. Exceptional talent and performance: Regardless of his team switches or financial motivations, Sanders was an extraordinary athlete and one of the greatest cornerbacks in NFL history. He consistently performed at an elite level and made a significant impact on the teams he played for.
  2. Team success: Sanders contributed to the success of multiple teams he played for, helping the San Francisco 49ers win Super Bowl XXIX and the Dallas Cowboys win Super Bowl XXX. Despite his reputation for being self-focused, he played a crucial role in those championship runs.
  3. Impact on the game: Sanders revolutionized the cornerback position with his exceptional coverage skills and playmaking ability. His impact on the game extended beyond his individual motivations, as he left a lasting legacy and influenced the way teams approach pass defense.
Ultimately, whether one considers Deion Sanders a mercenary or not is subjective and depends on individual perspectives. While his frequent team switches and financial motivations can be interpreted as evidence of mercenary behavior, his exceptional talent, team success, and impact on the game also warrant recognition and appreciation for his contributions to football.

It's a very subjective list of course. For me, It's:
Roger - don't think this can be questioned
Lilly - really only saw him play at the very end of his career when I was too young to understand, but going by all I've heard and read and especially comments from Landry
Randy White - just for knocking out Charles Haley at a time when he was terrorizing current players when you are in your 40's or 50's alone puts you on the list as an All Time bad ***. Toughest, meanest Cowboy ever?
