David Irving is all about the marijuana.
He recently quit football, and did so by announcing his retirement while smoking a blunt.
Now we have a little insight into his marijuana habit, and his motivation to quit.
Via USA Today Sports, the retired pro is opening up about his future endeavors in the field of cannabis.
Irving minced no words when it came to one of his final interactions with Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, revealing the longtime boss told him to quit playing so he could smoke without repercussions.
While still employed with the league, Irving accrued three suspensions in the last three offseasons for breaching the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug and substance-abuse rules.
On the contrary, Irving said owner Jerry Jones supported his decision to leave the team.
While the Cowboys front office did not respond to USA Today’s request for comment following Irving interview, Garrett did address Irving’s status with the team during the NFL combine in February.
“Obviously, he’s been dealing with some different things over the course of the last year and really was not a part of our team this past year,” Garrett told reporters. “He’s a free agent as we know it and will address specific issues with specific guys as we go.”
Irving and the Cowboys staff have not been in communication, however defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli has reached out to him at least once since the season ended.
Sounds to me like the Cowboys were all about Irving quitting and getting high.
You don’t hear that too often from a front office.
