David Irving writes on Instagram: “Every game you seen me play in, I was medicated”

David Irving has some thoughts. Just over two months ago, Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle David Irving was suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s policy on substance abuse.

There was never any public declaration of exactly which substance David Irving had been involved with, until Friday evening when he announced it on his own Instagram page. Warning: There is offensive and NSFW language. We generally don’t post this kind of...

Three potential trade targets at defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys

Three potential trade targets at defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys

If the Cowboys make a move at defensive tackle, here are three different directions they can go. The Cowboys offseason at defensive tackle has been a constant issue. It started off with Maliek Collins breaking his foot in offseason workouts, then followed by David Irving getting a four-game suspension and not reporting to camp. So far in training camp, there has yet to be a defensive tackle who has consistently stood out. We have seen flashes from Datone Jones, Antwaun Woods, Jihad Ward, and Brian Price, but are the Cowboys coaches getting a little antsy regarding the position> Mike Fisher...

Cowboys 2018 training camp: Early grades for the Cowboys defensive positions

A progress report from what we’ve seen of the Cowboys defense in camp. Just ahead of the Cowboys annual Blue/ White scrimmage, let’s follow up our early training camp grades for the offense with a few on the defensive side. Defensive Tackles: C- The depth at this position is most concerning but so is the experience level of the guys currently starting. The Cowboys are still rehabbing Maliek Collins, there’s no certain return date of note. David Irving is on a leave of absence that will not be ending any time soon. The reason the group still barely gets a passing grade is because the...

Jihad Ward: Why Rod Marinelli calls him “Dr. J” and why he wants to bring glory to the Cowboys

Get to know the Cowboys defensive tackle. One of the more intriguing players on the Dallas Cowboys a week into training camp is defensive tackle Jihad Ward. The Cowboys flipped wide receiver Ryan Switzer to the Oakland Raiders on the final day of the draft in order to acquire Ward’s services.

Report: Cowboys running blood tests on Kavon Frazier with regards to potential clotting

An update on Kavon Frazier. The Cowboys have four players whom they’ve given designations to as they begin training camp. Maliek Collins is on PUP, David Irving is on the did not report list, and both Randy Gregory and Kavon Frazier wound up on the non-football injury list. Gregory’s presence on this list wasn’t shocking. We’ve known that his road back to regular contributions is a long one and have been expecting this. For Frazier to land on NFI was definitely surprising. Late Wednesday night a report surfaced from the Dallas Morning News that offered some explanation. It seems...

David Irving is reportedly missing the start of training camp due to being at a rehab facility

Hopefully all is as well as can be with David Irving. The Dallas Cowboys arrived in Oxnard for training camp on Tuesday, but before anything got going completely there was a bit of news that trickled out. David Irving, suspended for the first four games of the season, won’t face any discipline for an alleged domestic violence case surrounding him earlier this offseason. He also won’t be at training camp with the Cowboys initially. His absence is excused. As noted, Irving’s suspension isn’t related to domestic violence.
