Prior to every Thursday Night Football game on CBS and NFL Network, Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin is an analyst on the pregame show on NFL Network, providing insight and expert commentary on all of the storylines heading into the night’s matchup. Irvin joins host Rich Eisen and analysts Marshall Faulk and Steve Mariucci on the show. Additionally, Irvin appears on the postgame show with Eisen, Faulk and Mariucci.


On NFL Sundays, Irvin can be seen on NFL Network’s Emmy-nominated NFL GameDay Morning, joining host Eisen and fellow analysts Mariucci, Faulk and Kurt Warner to discuss the upcoming games four hours prior to kickoff.


On NFL Sunday nights, Irvin joins Falk, Deion Sanders and host Chris Rose on NFL GameDay Final to provide the final word on all of the day’s action.


Irvin is a frequent contributing analyst to other NFL Network programming, including NFL Total Access, as well as on-location analysis for NFL Network’s coverage of the Super Bowl, NFL Scouting Combine and NFL Draft.


Prior to joining NFL Network as a full-time analyst, Irvin served as a guest analyst on the network’s coverage of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction ceremony in 2008 and 2009. Previously, Irvin served as an NFL analyst for ESPN from 2003-2007.


In 2009, Irvin appeared as a contestant on ABC’s ninth season of Dancing with the Stars.


A 2007 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Irvin spent his entire 10-year NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys where he won three Super Bowl rings in 1993, 1994 and 1996. His 750 receptions for 11,904 yards and 65 touchdowns still stand as tops in Dallas’ franchise records in all three categories. In eight of the 10 seasons Irvin starred with the Cowboys, he led the team in pass receptions, which is one of 13 individual best marks held by the ‘Playmaker’ in the Cowboys’ record books.


Irvin was the 11th overall selection by the Cowboys in the 1988 NFL Draft following a stellar career with the University of Miami where he still holds the record for career touchdown receptions (26) and most touchdown receptions in a season with 11 catches in 1986 after leading the Hurricanes to their second of five National Championships in 1987.
