More info from DCA on Ring of Honor inductee Michael Irvin:
Out of the University of Miami, Michael Irvin was the 11th selection of the Dallas Cowboys in the first round in the 1988 National Football League draft. His consistent ability to achieve at the highest level established his place among the game’s elite receivers.
During his stellar career, Irvin etched his name in the NFL record books and in Dallas Cowboys history. When he departed the NFL Irvin owned or was tied for 20 Cowboys receiving records. He was selected to five Pro Bowls between 1991-98.
Irvin, always a clutch player was Troy Aikman’s go-to-guy on third or fourth down attempts. His performance in the postseason was every bit as impressive as his consistent play throughout the regular season.
In 1999, Irvin was forced into early retirement when he sustained a non-life threatening cervical spinal cord injury in a game. Michael Irvin was inducted into the Ring of Honor in 2005 along with fellow teammates Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith.
