As we well know, the NFL are a bunch of sticklers when it comes to uniforms. Too much variation on what everyone else is wearing and, boom, you’re fined. So the Dallas Cowboys couldn’t honor the late Jerry Brown via a helmet sticker willy-nilly--they had to ask for the NFL’s consent. And, according to a report in the Dallas Morning News today, they have.
According to the report, it’s unclear whether the team will receive league approval in time for their Sunday matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers. If they do, the stickers will read either “JB” or “53,” which, of course, was Brown’s number.
Whether or not the team is allowed to honor their teammate with a helmet sticker on Sunday, we can’t imagine that the NFL would keep them from doing so in the coming weeks.
