Former Cowboys DL David Irving quits football, vilifies NFL on Instagram Live

David Irving

NFL player David Irving announced his retirement from the league live on Instagram Thursday, and did so while sparking up.

Irving had a breakout season in 2017, recording seven sacks in eight games despite serving a substance abuse suspension.

"So basically guys, I quit", he said.

"They want to talk about a suspension and all this other nonsense, I'm out of there, I'm not doing this s*** no more".

"There's a lot of s- f-ed up about the National Football League", he said.

This latest suspension is Irving's third in four years.

The troubled Irving jumped to Twitter on Tuesday to slam the league even hinting that he might refuse to play unless the NFL moves to allow marijuana, TMZ reported. "The NFL is not football".

"Don't get me wrong, I love football".

Chelsea ‘physically and mentally tired’, says Sarri
One of these teams can claim the runaway worst defence in the Premier League . "I wouldn't want to do it any other way". Chelsea are in the driving seat to finish in the top four following back-to-back victories over Tottenham and Fulham.

"Cuz it's bulls-t how I have Xanax bars n hydros right next to me to take, given to me by the nfl of course". 'How many National Basketball Association players you see get in trouble about this?

Irving also compared his plight to that of Colin Kaepernick, whose National Football League career effectively ended when teams refused to sign him due to the quarterback's protests for racial justice.

"Weed ... you're addicted to this, and that". It is medicine. I do not consider it a drug, rather than xanax bars or the hyrdros, or seroquel - all that insane sh*t that they feed you.

"Good plans. Big plans in the making", Irving said. I'm living with it. How many coaches do you see get in trouble about this? I'm not playing for free ...

"Like I said, it ain't about smoking weed".

"They try to make me seem like the bad guy", Irving said.

Meanwhile, in the National Football League, players can get tested at any time of the year, no matter if its during season or off season. "Knowing what we know about the body taking 30 days to fully process marijuana out of the system, players have until March 20th to get clean", says the site. "It is bullshit. I'll "Kaepernick" myself before they "Kaepernick" my ass".

Some owners had discussed easing marijuana restrictions in 2016 when negotiations with the NFL Players Association had come up, according to the NFL, but they did not result in any significant change to the rules.
