. Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson finished up his 17-year career with the Oakland Raiders in 1998, playing with 2015 Hall of Fame inductee Tim Brown.

Wilson was one of 22 quarterbacks to compete a pass to Brown during his stellar career. Wilson always seemed to find Brown in the end zone, connecting with him for a touchdown in all four games they played together.

In all, Wilson completed 18 passes to Brown, who finished with 1,094 career receptions.

“He was a real pleasure to play with, I’ll say that,” Wilson said. “He’s very deserving of the Hall of Fame, there’s no question about it. He may have been one of the most instinctive receivers I’ve ever been around. He knew how to adjust his routes in coverage, knew when to throttle in zones and run in man. Just a very aware player and really enjoyed my time playing with him.”
