Michael Irvin

Legendary Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin had quite the dramatic exit when his career was ended by a spinal cord injury. The injury happened during a game against the Philadelphia Eagles on their home turf. While being carted off the field, Irvin was met with cheers from Eagles fans because he had been going to work on their team for a decade. Irvin got the last laugh, though, since he's worked as a commentator and actor since his NFL career ended.
