Novacek Gets Irvin to Sign Miami Jersey for Cowboys Fan

At Monday's Cowboys practice a fan was near standing near me yelling for Michael Irvin to come over and sign his jersey.

A Michael Irvin fan waits for the Cowboys legend to sign his University of Miami jersey.

It was the No. 47 jersey from the University of Miami. Irvin played for Jimmy Johnson and was apart of the 1987 national title team.

Irvin never came over, but his Cowboys teammate Jay Novacek put the jersey on and ran routes in it as Irvin was doing interviews with the DFW media.

Novacek also got Irvin to autograph it.
