Why was David Irving suspended?
During the offseason, Irving received a 4 game suspension for violating the NFL’s PED policy. When asked about the PED’s Irving simply said, “ I thought I was just hitting a 2nd puberty “ and “I didn’t realize the fitness supplement I was using contained banned substances”. If you ask me, this just sounds like he needs to be more knowledgeable about the NFL rules if he is going to play for the NFL.
David Irving in 2016.
In 2016 David Irving made a surprising show of it when he had a coming out party against Aaron Rodgers and his Packers. During that season, Irving racked up 17 tackles, 4 sacks, and 4 Forced Fumbles .He was also named the Dallas Cowboys “ best pass rusher” for the 2016 season, so you could imagine that it hurt to see he had been given a 4 game suspension. And who’s his first game of the 2017 season against? aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
His impact for the rest of this 2017 season?
David Irving will be placed on the opposite side of the already hot DeMarcus Lawrence. When asked about Lawrence, Irving said, “ They are starting to double team, triple team, and chip him. Hopefully I can revive him of that and he can make more plays” and “ well they can’t block both of us, so we will just have to make them pay.” This is exactly what Cowboys Nation wants to hear after a heart wrenching 2nd half loss to the Rams. Dallas Cowboys fans should be looking forward to a 4 man wrecking crew between Lawrence, Irving, Collins, and Paea. This next coming week vs. the Packers will be an interesting one with all eyes on David Irving.
