According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Indianapolis Colts are working out former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving:

The former undrafted free agent out of Iowa State has 60 career tackles (38 solo), 17 tackles for loss, 12.5 sacks, 5 forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery during 39 games (10 starts)—having played for both the Cowboys (2015-18) and Las Vegas Raiders (2020).

He was suspended indefinitely during the 2019 season for violating the league’s policy on substances of abuse, and after ‘quitting football’ because he was opposed to the league’s drug stance regarding marijuana, was reinstated in mid-October of this past season.

He appeared in 2 games for the Raiders in 2020, recording 4 tackles (2 solo).

Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus has familiarity with Irving, as he previously served as the Cowboys linebackers coach.

If he impresses, at 6’7”, 290 pounds, Irving could serve as a rotational defensive lineman for the Colts—as he remains talented.
