Pro career

Drafted out of West Virginia University by the Chicago Bears in the first round of the 1958 NFL Draft, Howley played for the Bears for two seasons before retiring after what appeared to be a career-ending knee injury during the 1959 season. When Howley decided to make a comeback in 1961 following a West Virginia alumni game, the Bears traded his rights to the Dallas Cowboys for two future draft picks in 1963. Tom Landry, the head coach of the newly formed Cowboys, made the gamble to try to perfect his 'Doomsday Defense'.
