  • 5th round selection out of Washington by the Dallas Cowboys.

  • 3 year starter for the Huskies, threw for 4603 yards and 30 TDs.
  • In ’86 saw extensive playing time, throwing for 2727 yards, 8 TDs, including an 84 yard TD to Herschel Walker.
  • In 1988 finally became full-time starter, ranking in the top 7 in completions (245), TDs (17), and yards (3,139).
  • Briefly held the franchise record with 14 straight completions.
  • Dangerous scrambler finished second among NFC QBs with 51 carries for 314 yards.
  • With the firing of longtime head coach Tom Landry, the franchise decided to move in another direction with Jimmy Johnson in 1989.
  • The Cowboys traded Herschel Walker and drafted Troy Aikman and Steve Walsh.
  • Pelluer in the meantime held out, and in mid-October was traded to the Chiefs for a couple of low round draft choices.
  • Saw action in 5 contests, starting 3 in 1990, including a win over Seattle, when he threw for 205 yards and a TD.
  • Sprained knee and was out remainder of year.
  • As Steve DeBerg cemented his role as starter, Pelluer saw sparing playing time.
  • Pelluer joined the Denver Broncos in 1992 via Plan B, but he would not make the roster.
  • After a brief break, he’d play in the CFLUSA for the Blue Bombers in 1995, completing 9 of 17 passes for 112 yards and a TD, but was lost to injury after injury for the season in Week 2.
  • Pelluer signed on with the reborn World League in 1995, playing for the Frankfurt Galaxy and helping the team reach the World Bowl for the first time.
  • Retired after the 1996 campaign, playing mainly as a backup.
  • Since retirement has spent time in real estate with a specialization in commercial properties.


I always felt like Steve got a bad rap in Dallas, but he did also hold out at a critical time when the Cowboys were rebuilding. Then he got shipped to KC only to get stuck behind DeBerg. I had wanted to get Steve for a while- failing on him twice previously. -I even had his Starting Lineup figure!

Some great cards of Randy here as I knock out mainly some set needs.

Randy got addicted to opioid painkillers while in the NFL, but with the help of friends and family he went to treatment and got the help he needed. Randy founded a recovery operation after that titled ‘Athletes in Recovery’, and also participates in public speaking.
