David Irving smokes weed and quits Dallas Cowboys on Instagram live

David Irving smokes weed and quits Dallas Cowboys on Instagram live

The 25-year-old was suspended indefinitely by the NFL last week for violating the league's substance abuse policy - the third suspension of his career.

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle David Irving quit football during a live video stream on Instagram.

The majority of Irving's income came in 2018, when he played under a restricted free agency tag of over $2 million, but appeared in just two games.

'Basically, guys, I quit, ' Irving said. I know they're talking about a suspension and all this other nonsense.

"I'm outta there. I'm not doing this sh*t no more", Irving said in his social media post, TMZ reported.

The 25-year old was suspended twice before by the National Football League for substance abuse, which makes three suspensions in three seasons.

On Wednesday, Irving commented on Instagram about the prospect of the National Football League changing its marijuana policy, according to Patrik Walker of 247 Sports.

"I love football. I wouldn't be here without it". But I don't love the NFL. "How many actors? Not many, but you do see us football players". How many National Basketball Association players do you see get in trouble about this? He played in just 10 games over the past two seasons, but generated eight total sacks in those tilts.

Irving was undrafted coming out of Iowa State but ended up on the Cowboys during 2015 after spending time on the Chiefs' practice squad. Everyone thinks it's about smoking weed, it's not. "It's medicine, I do not consider it a drug; rather than the Xanax bars or the hydros or the Seroquel and all that insane s**t that they feed you".

Irving has defied the NFL's ban on pot and has served multiple suspensions for his actions.

Irving is still technically a member of the Cowboys but will become a free agent as of March 13th.

Irving was suspended for the first four games if 2017 for using a banned supplement. "But we have a lot of smart people that can get in there and analyze something and really make some good decisions and see if there need to be changes".
