Cowboys Defensive End David Irving Says He’s Quitting The NFL While Smoking Weed On IG

Cowboys defensive end David Irving was suspended for a third time by the NFL for a failed drug test, and this time around, Irving has had enough. He went on Instagram and announced that he will not be playing football anymore.

“Basically guys, I quit,” Irving said. “They wanna talk about a suspension and all this other nonsense. I’m outta there. I’m not doing this shit no more.” A few seconds later, he held up a neatly rolled blunt and started smoking it.

Irving, who has received two separate four-game suspensions in his career, the first for violating the league’s PED policy and the second for violating the league’s substances of abuse policy, was again suspended last week for violating the substances of abuse policy. “I’ll Kaepernick myself before they Kaepernick my ass,” he said.

Irving is clearly not a fan of the league’s stubborn mindset on players smoking weed as a pain reliever, and he mentions the other leagues like NBA or MLB, who have very lenient regulations on marijuana use.
