Hall of Fame wide receiver and Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin unveiled his Ring of Honor Walk monument Monday morning.

Irvin was part of the vaunted Cowboys' Triplets, which also included Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith, who led the Cowboys to win three Superbowls between 1993 and 1996.

Irvin made 750 receptions for 11,904 yards (21st all-time in the NFL) and 65 touchdowns in his NFL career. His 47 100-yard receiving games remains the third-most in NFL history, behind fellow Hall of Famers Jerry Rice (65) and Don Maynard (50).

Irvin's twelfth and final NFL season was cut short when he suffered a non-life-threatening cervical spinal cord injury after a tackle sent him head first onto the ground. He was subsequently diagnosed with a narrow spinal column, which forced him into a premature retirement.

Irvin was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007. Today, ten years later, his Ring of Honor monument is yet another tribute to an amazing career and an indomitable personality.
