Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will introduce former Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith at the Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony in August.
Smith confirmed the news on his verified Twitter account.
“Been getting lots of questions bout who will present me at the hof this August & I have made my decision,” Smith tweeted. “Im real honored to have this person intro me cuz hes done so much for me in my career . . . I asked Mr Jones & he accepted.”
Former Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin also selected Jones to be his presenter when Irvin was inducted in 2007. Jones gave a great introduction that was followed be a phenomenal speech by Irvin.
Dallas will play Cincinnati in the Hall of Fame Game during enshrinement weekend, so the Cowboys will have plenty of personnel on hand to honor Smith. The Washington Redskins will also be well represented, with Russ Grimm being inducted. Perhaps Smith and Daniel Snyder can exchange pleasantries again.
