Everett, Thomas

Card: Score Supplemental 1989
Acquired: In Person, Dallas Cowboys Training Camp 1992

Thomas Everett signed with the Cowboys in the final years of Plan B from the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1992. A graduate from Baylor University in Waco, Thomas Everett was the winner of the Jim Thorpe Trophy in 1986, at a day and age where Baylor was known in college for its amazing defensive pedigree and not as a college doormat. A consistent and dependable safety, in 5 years with the Steelers Thomas would make 16 interceptions and 315 tackles before heading over to the Cowboys where he started at strong safety, playing alongside and mentoring young Darren Woodson. Everett would provide stability at the position, helping the Cowboys earn a SuperBowl appearance after the 1992 season and again in 1993 when he shifted to free safety for the season. After the conclusion of the 1993 season in which he only started 9 games, Everett would sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where he played well through 1995, starting 25 games and retired where he has now gone into coaching in the Dallas area.
