Cowboys player quits while smoking weed — Blunt Departure

Cowboys DE David Irving blasts NFL over stance on cannabis

David Irving officially retires from his National Football League career with 56 total tackles, including 12.5 sacks, with five force fumbles and one fumble recovery in 37 games since joining the Dallas Cowboys before the 2015 season.

Yes, he was actually smoking marijuana while telling the world in Instagram Live that he was officially quitting.

"Basically, guys, I quit", Irving said in the video.

"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". In his video, Irving criticized the league's stance on marijuana, arguing the drug is a safer alternative than pills for treating football-related injuries.

He went on to say he is upset players have to deal with the league's policy.

"It is bull****. I'll "Kaepernick" myself before they "Kaepernick" my ass". The s- they did with Kap (Colin Kaepernick). The sh- they're doing to my dog Randy [Gregory]. It's one thing if everything wasn't bad but it's not. This wouldn't be as big of a news story if it wasn't the first time he tested positive-he started his last 2 seasons with a 4-game suspension due to the same violation.

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

Irving has spent the past four seasons with the Cowboys since joining as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa State. "However, we can't smoke the same weed the staff itself smokes".

Irving recorded 12.5 sacks in 37 games with the Cowboys. The next chance at major change in football's legislature will occur in 2021 during the NFL's next collective bargaining agreement meeting.

He also said that while he loves football, he doesn't love the NFL.

'It's amusing, you know, some people: "Oh, you're addicted to weed, you're addicted to this and that,"' he said.

Irving can also be seen during the stream smoking marijuana. How many coaches you see get in trouble about this? How many baseball players?

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.
