Emmitt Set to Star in Reality Show

NBC 5 News

It's crazy to think about given some of the legendary performances Emmitt Smith turned in for the Dallas Cowboys, but it's pretty safe to say the NFL's all-time leading rusher is probably the least revered of the famed "Triplets" from the 1990s Super Bowl champion Cowboys.

One of the reasons could be that Smith left Dallas to go to the Cardinals instead of just hanging it up, but Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin both retired due to injury so that's a bit unfair to say. It could also be that Irvin and Aikman have stayed relevant locally, appearing on local sports radio despite being national television analysts, while Smith hasn't.

Whatever the case, Smith is still in the limelight as he'll be starring in a new reality show on the Oprah Winfrey-owned OWN network with his wife, Pat.
