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

RJ Ochoa

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!

    Hopefully, the Cowboys will draft more players with chips on their shoulders, like Brown and Dak, etc. I smell Minneapolis in the air, @ the Star!!

Cowboys Trade for FB Jamize Olawale from Raiders

Jamize Olawale, Raiders

Less than a week after the Cowboys lost fullback Keith Smith to the Raiders in free agency, the two teams have worked out a trade to send FB Jamize Olawale from Oakland to Dallas.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter

Fullback trade! The #Raiders are sending FB Jamize Olawale to the #Cowboys, sources say. Dallas has its fullback, one who was with Oakland since 2012.

To facilitate the trade, the Cowboys will send their fifth-round pick (173rd overall) to the Raiders for their sixth-round pick (192nd), moving back just 19 spots.

In return, Dallas not only brings in a veteran replacement at FB but a player they already know.

Jamize Olawale was an undrafted rookie free agent of the Cowboys in 2012. Despite a strong showing in that preseason, Dallas did not have room for him on the roster. He was on the team's practice squad until December, when Oakland poached him.

Since then, Olawale has been a regular roleplayer in the Raiders' offense. He's missed just six games since 2013.

Jamize brings more offensive firepower to the FB position than Keith Smith had. He's scored at least one touchdown in each of the last three seasons. He can be effective both running and receiving.

Through the trade, Dallas picks up the final year of Olawale's current contract. It calls for a $1.5 million base salary in 2018.

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for 2018

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladoucer for 2018 1

Continuity is the key to good special teams play in the NFL. Already losing long-time Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia to the Raiders - who promptly snatched ST aces Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber in free agency - the Dallas Cowboys have announced their intentions to re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for the 2018 season.

Returning on a one-year deal, the fan favorite Ladouceur will be back to do what he does best in cleanly executing almost every special teams snap for Chris Jones or Dan Bailey to handle.

Todd Archer on Twitter

Long snapper L.P. Ladouceur will re-sign with the Cowboys on Monday, according to sources, on a one-year deal. He will be in his 14th season with the franchise. Only Jason Witten, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei will have more years of...

While Jones has improved as the Cowboys' punter with each passing season, Kicker Dan Bailey actually enters 2018 as another question mark on this unit. With the general belief around the team being that Bailey will be just fine moving forward, the Cowboys will no longer have to worry about who handles long snaps next year either.

Report: Raiders Sign Former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber

Kevin Brady



Cowboys Headlines - Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Linebacker Kyle Wilber

A Free Agency period filled with departures continued for the Dallas Cowboys today, as the Oakland Raiders have reportedly signed the now-former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber.


The Raiders have signed LB Kyle Wilber:

Wilber has been with the Cowboys since 2012, and has played in all 16 games four of the past five seasons. Most of his time has come on special teams, but he did provide solid linebacker depth for the Cowboys since joining the team.

Dallas has now lost both Wilber and Anthony Hitchens, depleting their linebacker depth even further over the last couple weeks.

The Raiders have now signed two key special teams contributors for the Cowboys in Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber this offseason. Hopefully Dallas can replace these types of "replacement level" players throughout the rest of the offseason, especially during the NFL Draft.
