    That's too bad, when he was on the field for Dallas he looked great. After 2017 I thought he might work his way into a big contract, then he just disappeared this season.

    He can always apply for this job. Already has some experience with students and stop signs.

    From the article:
    He was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain during the Oct. 21 game against Washington and never played again despite remaining on the roster. Irving was not a regular participant in his rehab, Moore reports.

    Still, the Cowboys paid Irving $2.9 million in 2018 as a restricted free agent. He becomes an unrestricted free agent next month.

    Irving, 25, has served suspensions in back-to-back seasons. He opened the 2018 season with a four-game suspension for violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy after violating the PED policy in 2017.

    He also missed all of the offseason program and training camp dealing with off the field issues, including a custody battle for his daughter.

    He is/was a helluva player, but the guy just can't seem to get out of his own way (beginning with - but not limited to - a stop sign).

    Hard to cheer for the guy that helped kill VEISHA.

    Took 3 posts to get to the stop sign post. That's all I cared about on this thread

    If the cowboys think you're a character issue it's time to reevaluate your life

    He'll get another look somewhere else, but man. Talk about a blown opportunity. He had a chance to get to free agency and cash in either with the Cowboys or another team. Now he'll probably have to sign a short term deal and prove himself all over again.

    Come on, man. I'm sure the several hundred other students there had nothing to do with it. Yeah, he was one of the most recognizable ones there, but to single him out like that is silly. If he hadn't been there I am confident there would still be no VEISHEA today.

    Not being able to spell VEISHEA is probably what really killed it. ;)

    Hahaha.

    There were drunken riots in the late 80s, when I was in grad school.

    There were two when I was there undergrad - same time frame. I can honestly say I was never at one though.

    We're petty.
    I see his name and just see him raising that stop sign. That's probably not good.

    First memory for me is a dogpile over on the sidelines after he blocked a kick (iirc)...but it is quickly overshadowed by the stop sign and his subsequent downfall.
    I agree - if your primary memories of a player are of off-field/court stupidity, that's not a good sign.

    It’s honestly all I can think about when I see his name.

    Me, too. Sometimes it's the still shot and sometimes the video wrenching the stop sign out of the ground. I guess I have variety, but that's all he is to me.

    For being a pain in the ass he's made more money in a few years then I'll make in a life time. In the end I'll be a millionaire he will be broke.

    It drys up quick if he's as impulsive as i think he is.
