The Dallas Cowboys have many players who can step into leadership roles after the offseason, which saw many players leave and many injuries in the first half of the season. Quarterback Dak Prescott believes that one young receiver is doing exactly that.
Prescott stated that Noah Brown, a veteran wide receiver, is now a leader in a recent interview. Prescott called Brown the “the epitome of being a professional” and someone younger players can look up too.
“You want to find a guy who’s the epitome of being a professional, it’s Noah Brown, on and off the field… He’s somebody that those young guys need to follow. Not just should follow, but need to,” Prescott said.
Prescott has shown Brown that he is worthy of his trust in today’s match against the Cincinnati Bengals. Cooper Rush was the Cowboys’ starting quarterback today. Brown caught a nine yard touchdown pass on their first drive. He had four receptions totaling 79 yards to end the half.

The 26-year old wideout’s career-high 79 receiving yards is already an impressive record. This was also his first touchdown in his career.
He had 68 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, his highest score since 2021 against Las Vegas Raiders.
Brown was among many players who were able to move up the depth charts after the departures of numerous receivers last season. He’s showing that the promotion he received was well-worth it.
Noah Brown will be the Cowboys’ breakout player this year.
