DALLAS (AP) -Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin says he calmly chatted with a gunman in another vehicle after the armed passenger turned out to be a Dallas Cowboys fan.
Irvin, who was not harmed, says he was ``very afraid.''
A Dallas police report says Irvin was stopped at a red light Monday night when two men in a truck pulled up next to him.
The driver rolled down his window, so Irvin did the same, thinking the two men recognized the radio talk show host and television commentator.
The passenger flashed a gun. Then the retired NFL star heard one of them call out his name and mentioned being a ``huge Cowboy fan.''
Irvin says he began talking with the men about the team's disappointing 9-7 season and Dallas not making it to the Super Bowl.
The pair eventually drove off.
