F RISCO -Former Dallas Cowboys receiver John "Golden" Richards, famous for big plays in big moments, died Friday of congestive heart failure. He was 73.

Richards made his biggest mark while catching a touchdown on a halfback pass from Robert Newhouse pass that helped seal the Cowboys' Super Bowl XII victory over the Denver Broncos. The second-round pick of the Cowboys in 1973, Richards also scored touchdowns for Dallas in the 1975 and 1977 NFC title games.

Richards had been in poor health in the last few years, having undergone a series of surgeries after he broke his hip in 2022, his brother Doug tells  the Deseret News .

"He has left us and gone to a better place," Doug Richards told the paper. "He fought pretty good there to the end, until it was his time."

A star at BYU, Golden Richards spent five-plus seasons in Dallas. Richards finished his career playing for the Chicago Bears in 1978-79 and then for the Broncos in 1980.

He is survived by two adult sons, Goldie Jr. and Jordan, and a 2-year-old grandson, Jett.

They were called "America's Team" and they were either loved or hated because of it.

You knew the America referred to was the beautiful old America.
