David Irving hitting FA

Recommended Posts

The Guy can certainly play, but the Cowboys are moving on for a reason.  This guy has trouble getting on the field. Between injuries, and suspensions. I say pass.

If the Cowboys turf a player because of his the off field problems then stay away.  Jerry Jones is king of giving guys 2nd, 3rd and 4th chances.

Sounds like he's probably facing another long suspension.

I was an advocate of trading for him last off season, due to potential (and at the time his "I have grown up/reformed stance" ) but now that a season has passed nothing really changed for him....He could be a phenomenal force on the D-line for us......but he is apparently just as disruptive in his personal life as he is on the field......that's too bad.....sometimes those types of players eventually "get it" and it clicks, and they change, and sometimes they never get it......and its a train wreck signing.....if we could turn him loose on the field and then put him in stasis after each game and transport him to the next venue and  bring him out of it at the start of the next game, I am all for it lol

Suspended indefinitely.  

 

That's pretty long.

He's hitting something. Not free agency, but something. :funny:

He’ll be broke and crying in a year or so, hoping to get reinstated.

Had he stuck it out and made it through one more year, had he gotten one contract, he would have been set for life.

"According to a 2009 Sports Illustrated article, 78% of National Football League (NFL) players are either bankrupt or are under financial stress within two years of retirement."

 

Sounds like he'll fit in nicely with this statistic.

Everyone takes a stand for something (Gun Control, abortion rights, Surveillance). Why is this any different? Because hes a football player? So what about Robert Kraft having sex with under age girls? wait a min... Don't do that, Don't talk about that! The hypocrisy is real. 

 

The worse thing you can do beyond being hooked on Heroin (its a mental health issue, I know lol BTW A good friend of mine passed from Over dosing) is smoking the same stuff the same Heroin doctors give you that's not Heroin called... What about cigarettes and alcohol? these kill more people than... I support David Irving and people like him.

He was suspended for performance enhancers, too.  Who knows why he's skipping tests - weed or roids?

    • Since Vinny's knee is basically shot for the 2019 season this is a great chance for Chris Ballard to get a good look at McLaughling as possibly the Colts starting kicker beyond 2019. Either way, the Colts will move on from Vinatieri no matter what he decides to go beyond 2019. Place him on IR and see what you have from McLaughing. Worst case scenario you sign or draft another Kicker to be your guy.
    • I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that. 
    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
    • RG3 would be available also
    • IF Ballard and Reich still think JB is the answer at this point, then we need to start thinking about who is running what at Colt world HQs.
