Former Cowboys star Drew Pearson trolls Eagles fans
Apr 30 2017
Of course, he was welcomed by a chorus of boos from the Eagles faithful, but that didn't stop Pearson from powering through and delivering what turned out to be one of the most epic draft announcements in the event's history.
Pearson didn't hold back, trolling Eagles fans by thanking them "for allowing him to have a career in the National Football League". It didn't matter who or what, they booed. Goodell at one point Friday night asked the fans to hold off on booing for a moment so he could speak ("One second and you can resume your booing", he said) and of course the booing got louder. It was glorious, and the crowd never stopped booing, so Pearson was screaming the entire time.
The cameras in the draft room showed all of the Cowboys' brass with big smiles. Before he got down to business, he took the opportunity to troll Eagles fans.
Pearson egged the crowd on.
"With the 60th pick in the second round, the Dallas Cowboys select defensive back from Colorado Chidobe Awuzie". Ten-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten quickly tweeted a response.
When the draft was in New York, Giants fans and particularly Jets fans would give us some memorable reactions when their teams made regrettable picks.
