The Cowboys tendered Irving on Wednesday at the second-round level, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports. He'll earn $2.91 million in the 2018 season.

The 24-year-old played in only eight games last season, missing the first four with a suspension and the final four with a concussion. In between, Irving was a force along the defensive line, collecting seven sacks and six pass breakups. Irving could receive a contract offer from another club given his upside -- even at the cost of forfeiting a second-round pick -- but the Cowboys would still have the right to match it and keep him in the fold.
