The spinal injury that ended Irvin's 1999 football season is sending the Dallas wide receiver into retirement.
The announcement has been expected for months and it will come today at a news conference at Texas Stadium.
Irvin along with Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith led the Cowboys to 3 Super Bowl Championships in a four year span.
