Brown, Larry

Card: Proset 1992
Acquired: Dallas Cowboys Training Camp 1993

Larry Brown was a 12th round pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 1990. The team basically selected him on a whim since 12th rounders rarely make a team. They were looking for a local product and thought as an added bonus they could cut costs on transportation since Larry was from TCU in Fort Worth. Larry’s career would start anonymously enough but by the end of training camp Jimmy Johnson and his crew were already impressed with his athleticism and work ethic starting 13 games his rookie season as Dallas’ right CB intercepting two passes. In 1995, Brown would be targeted more often with Deion Sanders playing at LCB. Under pressure he’d perform admirably, hauling in 6 interceptions and 2 touchdowns. In SuperBowl XXX, that season against the Pittsburgh Steelers Larry Brown would intercept quarterback Neil O’Donnell twice, enroute to MVP honors. After the season, Brown would sign as a free agent with the Oakland Raiders but would be buried in the lineup, only starting 12 games over two seasons and making one pick. He’d resign with the Cowboys in 1998, suiting up for 4 games and retired there after the season. After retirement Larry entered into the radio booth, where he serves as a member of the Cowboys Radio Network.
