LOOK: Anthony Brown Has A “Chip” On His Shoulder

The 2016 Dallas Cowboys Draft Class is one that might someday challenge as the best in Franchise History. Of course, the 1975 class, aka The Dirty Dozen, might have something to say about that... especially when they find out about a certain detail concerning Cornerback Anthony Brown. While it was Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott that stole the show, young Anthony played admirably throughout his rookie season. As a sixth round pick he obviously has a lot of motivation to do well, and apparently he has a reminder of it in the form of a tattoo on his shoulder.

It's official. The #Cowboys need to draft a #CB at 28. Anthony Brown's tattoo is release-worthy.

Anthony Brown has a potato chip tattooed on his shoulder. I can't believe I had to say that.

This isn't exaggerating, it's not hyperbole, it isn't reading too much into anything... this man has an actual potato chip permanently inked onto his shoulder. Why, you ask? Anthony Brown plays with "a chip on his shoulder"... literally. I am without words.

Maybe Anthony Brown could have exhibited the great technique he does on the field and tried to quickly back-step out of this by simply saying he's a huge fan of the salty treats, but the "189" marked below the potato chip (I keep having to say it!) is a dead giveaway that this is without a doubt a reference to his draft position.

You see Anthony Brown was taken in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft... at #189 Overall. The chip is symbolic, people! The chip represents more! In Survivor fire represents your life, well in the NFL chips represent your motivation!

Here's the thing though, Anthony Brown. I can sort of understand the literal message that you're going for here, but if you're going to literally permanently mark yourself with a chip there are far better ways to do it. Here are my official Chip Power Rankings:

  1. Sour Cream & Onion
  2. Jalapeno
  3. Tortilla
  4. Chocolate
  5. CHiPs
  6. Micro
  7. Ruffled
  8. Kettle
  9. Potato in general
  10. Kelly

The other thing about this tattoo is that Anthony Brown went with ruffled, #7 on RJ Ochoa's official Chip Power Rankings, on this tattoo. Can you imagine how painful that must have been for the tattoo artist to get all of the lines in?!

Thank goodness Anthony Brown's skills as an NFL cornerback transcend his abilities to choose tattoos practically. Do you, AB. Help us win a Champion-chip.

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll. @RJOchoa if you wanna shout!

BREAKING: Dallas Cowboys Sign Free Agent Safety George Iloka

George Iloka

The Dallas Cowboys have reached a one-year agreement with Safety George Iloka, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. Iloka spent 2018 with the Vikings after six years with the Bengals.

He's started 79 of his 99 career games since being a fifth-round pick by Cincinnati in 2012. Iloka turns 29 years old next week.

The Cowboys have agreed to a one-year deal with safety George Iloka, according to a source. Iloka met with the Cowboys on Friday and was the third safety to meet with the club during the week along with Clayton Geathers and Eric Berry. The Cowboys have... https://t.co/JB5nJLWepc

This isn't the safety that most Cowboys fans wanted. After over a year of pining for Earl Thomas, sights turned to Eric Berry after his free agent visit in Dallas last week.

However, it makes sense that Iloka would be attractive to the Cowboys. At 6'4" and 225 lbs, he fits the physical mold of what Defensive Backs Coach Kris Richard likes in his players. He also is younger than Berry and Thomas without the same recent injury issues.

Iloka becomes one of many Boise St. products on Dallas' roster, joining Tyrone Crawford, DeMarcus Lawrence, Leighton Vander Esch, and others. He entered the league with college teammates Crawford and Kellen Moore, the Cowboys' new offensive coordinator, in 2012.

We'll have to wait and see how George Iloka fits into the current mix at safety with Jeff Heath and Xavier Woods. He spent most of 2018 as a backup with Minnesota, but Dallas will likely give him a chance to start.

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

According to multiple sources, the Dallas Cowboys have signed former Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Randall Cobb to a one-year deal to help bolster their depth at the WR position and potentially become Cole Beasley's replacement.

Cowboys are giving former Packers' WR Randall Cobb a one-year, $5 million deal, per source. https://t.co/8KWFPjSP8T

The Dallas Cowboys met with Randall Cobb earlier this week, but he eventually left Dallas without a contract. He must've had a change of heart or just needed time to ponder the Cowboys offer, but regardless of what transpired in that short time he is now part of America's Team.

During his time with the Packers, Cobb accumulated 470 receptions for 5,524 receiving yards and 41 touchdowns. The eight-year veteran will now be expected to replace some of Cole Beasley's production out of the slot for the Dallas Cowboys.

After years of watching Beasley as the Cowboys slot WR, it will be really interesting to see Randall Cobb in that role. He's not as quick twitched as No. 11, but can be just as dangerous due to his ability to be more of a down the field receiver. He also brings added value in the return game and could compete with Tavon Austin to become the return specialist.

This could mean the Cowboys forgo drafting a wide receiver early in the 2019 NFL Draft, but I wouldn't put it past them. Regardless of what happens, this is an excellent addition.

Welcome to Cowboys Nation Randall Cobb!

REPORT: Dallas Cowboys Re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur is returning for his 15th season as the Cowboys' long snapper. The veteran free agent was re-signed by Dalals today to a one-year deal.

Thanks to Jason Witten's one-year sabbatical with Monday Night Football, Ladouceur has now been with the Cowboys for more consecutive seasons than any current player. He just turned 38 last week, but Louis-Philippe remains one of the top long snappers in football.

Todd Archer on Twitter

The Cowboys have signed long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur to a one-year deal worth $1.03 million and $90,000 in bonus money, but he will count $735,000 against the cap. This will be Ladouceur's 15th season with the Cowboys, tying Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Mark... https://t.co/2iDsi6RX7e

Retaining Ladouceur is an underrated move for the Cowboys given their situation at kicker.

Brett Maher was only 80% accurate overall on field goals last year. The team could be considering an upgrade in free agency.

Whether they bring Maher back or try someone new, having a long snapper with Ladouceur's performance perfection will make things much easier for them.
