Lomax spent all eight of his eight seasons in the NFL with the Cardinals. He retired after the first season in the desert in 1988.
He lead the Cardinals to playoffs in the strike-shortened season of 1987. He had the team within playoff striking distance in 1988 in Arizona, going 7-7 before he had to give it up due to injury.
His career he finished with 22,771-yards passing with 136 touchdowns and 90 interceptions. His last season saw him throw for 20 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
He played his guts out and was, and still is, a great guy. He was a high character guy who deserves the honor. He had the Cardinals at 7-4 at one point in 1988 before his hip injury started taking its toll.
The two-time Pro Bowler’s time was short in the NFL but he should not be forgotten for the contributions he made while in St. Louis and Arizona. He would be the sixth QB inducted into the team’s ROH.
