Emmitt Smith, one of the cornerstones of the Dallas Cowboys' three World Championships in the 1990's, is retiring from National Football League.
The former University of Florida, Dallas Cowboy, and Arizona Cardinal star made the announcement in Jacksonville, FL earlier today.
"I've given everything I can possible to the game, on and off the field," Smith said in a press conference.
Smith played his last two years with Arizona Cardinals after spending 13 years in Dallas. For his career, he rushed for 18,355 yards and 164 touchdowns.
Perhaps the pinnacle of his career was 1993, when he claimed MVP honors in both the regular season and Super Bowl.
Of course, Smith leaves the game as the all-time leading rusher in NFL history, breaking Walter Payton's long standing record in 2002.
Stay tuned to SilverStarDigest.com for more on his retirement announcement.
