Cowboys Give Dez Bryant Michael Irvin's 88: Dez Bryant, the Oklahoma State wide receiver the Dallas Cowboys moved up to draft in the first round, has been given jersey 88, the number once worn by Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin. The 6-foot-2 receiver share's Irvin's height and outweighs him by 18 pounds.

They'll probably give him new shoes. ;-)

Given that Jerry J. greatly admires the spirit of entrepreneurship, the jersey number assignment is probably a tribute to Marvin Harrison, car wash magnate.
