David Irving can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
The Cowboys defensive tackle has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, the NFL Network reported Friday.
Irving has now had three bans in as many seasons. He was previously suspended for violating the substance abuse policy and as well as the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing substances.
Ironically, he shared a photo on Instagram detailing why he’s in the NFL just before news of the most recent ban broke.
I’m in the NFl because I’m great at what I do. I’m not in the NFL because I’m an Eagle Scout , or the perfect model citizen. I didn’t put on a mask or kiss ass to be where I am. Im here on natural ability . This is God’s plan. Not mine. Trust me , I’m adjusting to it as well. Once I step on the field and stop performing , THEN we have a problem .. . So does anyone have anything to say about my play ?
Irving, 25, is set to become a free agent when the new league year begins March 13. With no indication from the team that he will be re-signed, it’s likely the fifth-year defensive lineman will be on his way out of Dallas.
The news came hours after Cowboys teammate Randy Gregory was suspended indefinitely for reportedly violating the league’s policy on substances of abuse and the terms of his conditional reinstatement.
