Darren Woodson Discusses the Cowboys Dynasty of the 1990s

I sat down with Darren Woodson in January 2017 for a discussion about the Dallas dynasty of the 1990s. The roughly 30-minute sit-down is part of a larger audio project on the Cowboys dynasty that should be completed and released later this year.
