DALLAS (AP) -- The first time Michael Irvin watched "American Idol," he loved the concept of giving undiscovered singers the chance to become stars. Now Irvin is doing the same for NFL wannabes.
The Hall of Fame receiver is launching a reality TV show in which 12 "football neophytes" will compete for an impressive grand prize: a spot on the Dallas Cowboys' training camp roster.
Irvin told The Associated Press on Thursday the show will give someone the "opportunity of a lifetime."
The Cowboys confirmed that one of their 80 roster spots will go to the show's winner. The NFL did not immediately return a call.
