David Irving smokes weed and quits Dallas Cowboys on Instagram live
Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle David Irving has said that he is quitting football following his suspension by the NFL for violating the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
Irving previously breached the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse in June 2018 and decided that he would leave the NFL following his latest suspension.
“Basically guys, I quit,” Irving said on his Instagram. "They want to talk about a suspension and all this other nonsense. I’m out of there. I’m not doing this (expletive) no more.”
Alright so I guess David Irving is done with football.

Irving said that he still loved football but not the way it was conducted in the NFL and because of the league's stance he would be walking away from the game.
“I’m not putting up with this s— for no reason,” Irving said. “The s— they did with (Colin Kaepernick). The s— they’re doing with my dog Randy (Gregory). It’s one thing if everything wasn’t bad but it’s not.
“Everyone questions my commitment to football. Let’s get it straight here and now. I love football. Football shaped me. I wouldn’t be here without it. Don’t get me wrong, I love football. However, I don’t love the NFL. The NFL is not football and you’ve got to understand that. What you all see us do, the game and s—, that’s like 20 percent of all the real s— that goes on.
“I’m all right. This is my choice. I’m living with it. I’m not about to be forced into doing something. I’m not playing for free. I don’t think I’m a bad guy for choosing this route. I stand up for what I believe in. I’ll Kaepernick myself before they Kaepernick my (butt). Things are going to be all right.”
