Raiders' David Irving: Back with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders re-signed Irving on Thursday.

Irving handled 40 defensive snaps for Las Vegas across three games last season. After briefly exploring his options elsewhere in the league, the veteran defensive end has now decided to re-sign with the Raiders. Irving was a force to be reckoned with off the edge back when the entered the league in 2015, but he's now working to resurrect his career after recently having missed almost two seasons due to a suspension.

Irving played in two games for the Raiders last season (totaling four tackles), while spending some time on the reserve/COVID-19 list as well. The 27-year-old defensive end is attempting to resurrect his NFL career after missing nearly two years due to suspensions for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

David Irving: Secures practice squad deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders signed Irving to the practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Irving was handed an indefinite suspension by the NFL in March of 2019 for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The league conditionally reinstated the defensive tackle last Friday, and he's found a new home in Las Vegas. It may take some time for the 27-year-old defensive tackle to get up to speed considering he hasn't played since the 2018 season, but the Raiders likely plan to promote him to the active roster at some point. Irving could be a major boost for the team's defensive front, as he posted eight sacks over his last 10 NFL games.

Raiders' David Irving: Signs with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving signed a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Irving was handed an indefinite suspension by the NFL in March of 2019 for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The league conditionally reinstated the defensive tackle last Friday, and he's found a new home in Las Vegas. Irving hasn't played since 2018, but he'd been a dependable pass rusher with eight sacks over his past 10 games. The Raiders' defensive line hasn't been up to par this year, and depending on how quickly Irving can acclimate, he could be a real boost as the team makes a playoff push.

David Irving: Trying out for Las Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders have scheduled a tryout with Irving, Bryan Witt of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Irving, who was conditionally reinstated by the NFL on Friday, won't have to wait long before getting his first chance to sign with a new team. The 27-year-old could be a good fit along a Raiders' defensive line that's struggled to consistently manufacture pressure.

David Irving: Conditionally reinstated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving was conditionally reinstated by the NFL on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Irving has been serving an indefinite suspension since March 2019 for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. The 27-year-old former Cowboy, now a free agent, is free to explore signing opportunities with any team.

David Irving: Seeking reinstatement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving said he's currently in the league's reinstatement process, Selby Lopez of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Irving was handed an indefinite suspension -- the third ban in three years -- by the NFL in March of 2019 for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, and shortly after that, the defensive tackle said he was done with football, citing his frustrations with the league's policies. The 26-year-old wants to get another chance in the NFL, and he may need to sit out a few games if he's, in fact, reinstated. Irving is currently a free agent.

Cowboys' David Irving: Says he's done with NFL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (suspension) said he doesn't want to play in the NFL anymore, ESPN.com reports. "Basically, guys, I quit," Irving said. "I don't want to talk about a suspension and all this other nonsense. I'm outta there."

Irving released a video Thursday on Instagram Live, discussing his frustrations with the NFL's substance abuse policy while he appeared to be smoking marijuana. The Cowboys aren't expected to re-sign the 25-year-old defensive tackle, as he recently was handed his third suspension in the past three years. It now seems Irving will consider retirement, or at least a prolonged break from his football career.

Cowboys' David Irving: Suspended indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving has received an indefinite suspension for violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Irving kicked off the 2017 campaign with a four-game ban for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. He proceeded to receive a suspension of similar length to start last season due to a violation of the substance abuse policy. Those transgressions and injuries have limited him to 10 games total the past two years, and he'll now have his work cut out for him to land an NFL gig in the future.

Cowboys' David Irving: Possibility of suspension remains
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (ankle) continues to be evaluated for a potential suspension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Irving was suspended the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's drug policy, and he could be facing another ban after he missed multiple drug tests during the season. Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports the NFL is investigating Irving for a domestic violence incident, which reportedly played a part in his lengthy absence from the Cowboys while nursing an ankle injury this past season. The 25-year-old defensive tackle is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent and isn't expected to receive a contract offer from Dallas.

Cowboys' David Irving: Expected to leave Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (ankle) isn't expected to re-sign with the Cowboys, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Irving recorded four tackles and one sack across just two games with the Cowboys in 2018, as his season was derailed by personal issues and a high-ankle sprain. The Cowboys reportedly do not intend to pick up Irving's 2019 option, in which case the defensive tackle will become a free agent in March. It's worth noting there are reports that Irving missed multiple league-mandated drug tests in 2018.

Cowboys' David Irving: Could be facing suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (ankle) has missed multiple drug tests from the league office over the last few months, Clarence Hill Jr. of the Star-Telegram reports.

The defensive lineman missed the first four games of the 2018 season due to his last violation of the league's substance abuse policy, and in the eyes of the NFL a missed test counts as another failed test. Irving has been dealing with a personal situation that has kept him away from the Cowboys' facilities, which likely explains why he wasn't available for testing, but whether the league will take that into consideration before issuing another suspension is unclear. Irving's also been dealing with an ankle injury since Week 7, and while the team avoided putting him on IR in case he was able to make it back for its playoff run, it seems highly unlikely he'll suit up again this year for the Cowboys even if they make it past the Rams on Saturday.

Cowboys' David Irving: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (ankle) is ruled out for Saturday's divisional-round playoff game against the Rams, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Irving has not practiced since sustaining a high ankle sprain in Week 7 of the regular season. His recovery has been delayed due to personal issues. If the Cowboys are able to extend their season with a win against the Rams, Irving will work to return to practice next week.

Cowboys' David Irving: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (ankle) is ruled out for Saturday's wild-card game against the Seahawks, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Irving will remain sidelined for Dallas' playoff opener and miss his 10th consecutive game due to personal issues and a high-ankle sprain. Per Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Irving has resumed running on the ankle and could return to practice if the Cowboys manage to win extend their season.

Cowboys' David Irving: Out Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (ankle/personal) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Irving will miss his ninth straight game with the high-ankle sprain and personal issues. The 25-year-old currently has no timetable for his return, but Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reported earlier this week he isn't close to rejoining the team.
