Former Cowboys Pro Bowl wide receiver, and Dallas Ring of Honor inductee, Drew Pearson was given the honor of announcing the Cowboys 2017 second round draft pick in front of a sea of angry Philly fans who have hated a every fiber of his being for the past 40 years.
As commissioner Goodell introduced Pearson to the crowd, the boos from Eagles fans rained down like LeBron’s first game returning to Cleveland after “The Decision.”
Pearson didn’t just sit there and take it, he gave it right back, times 10.
First, he trolled Eagles fans for “allowing” him to have a career in the NFL, then continued the ethering by pointing out the Cowboys were 5-time Super Bowl champs.
He finished off by personally thanking Jerry Jones, Jason Garrett, and all Cowboys past and present, and gave a bow of respect to the fans. It was all in good fun, even if Eagles fans can’t take a joke.
The Cowboys took Colorado cornerback Chidobe Awuzie with the pick, but that’s a footnote in this classic NFL Draft moment.
How ’bout them Cowboys?
