Michael Irvin Says the Cowboys Should Sign Troubled Wideout Antonio Brown

The Dallas Cowboys have hit the skids over the last month, as their once-potent offense has regressed to pre-Amari Cooper levels.

With injuries all along their receiving corps, Michael Irvin has a truly outside-the-box idea to get the Cowboys back in the NFC East hunt: the Playmaker wants Jerry Jones to bring Antonio Brown to Big D.

After freezing his feet, calling his GM a cracker, and forcing his way out of Oakland, Brown signed with the New England Patriots for all of one game before he was released. He is currently facing two accusations of sexual assault amid a laundry list of other behavioral infractions.

While Brown can obviously still play, he is currently carrying a record amount of baggage with him. Even with Jones' unmatched passion for bringing in troubled big-name stars, AB is likely still too toxic for this team.

There are plenty of guesses as to why the Cowboys have struggled lately (lack of balance, poor QB play, defense) but Mr. Big Chest is not the fix for any of that. The Cowboys are a powder keg, and Brown is a flamethrower.
