OXNARD, California – Dallas Cowboys Defensive Attack David Irving will not be at the training camp opening and it is not clear when he will appear.
According to several sources, Irving was from the beginning of the camp to address personal issues that contributed to the lack of most Cowboys' offseason programs in the spring.
It has nothing to do with legal issues or issues with the NFL. But Irving, who was contracted for $ 2.9 million for another year as a free agent in the offseason, continues in turbulent months.
In June, he was punished with a four-game ban because he had violated the substance of the league
He escaped punishment by the NFL under the policy of personal behavior that resulted from an April one-time girlfriend alleged domestic violence, which was later revoked, the sources said. He was acquitted by the police in Frisco, Texas, after investigating a complaint filed by the former girlfriend, but the NFL can impose disciplinary measures, either with a fine or a suspension, even if a cargo is dropped.
It Will Be the Second Irving will miss the first four games of the season after hitting the league's injury promotion drug policy in 201
Irving missed most of the offseason program as he underwent a custody battle over his daughter. During the mandatory minicamp in June, he worked on his conditioning aside.
"I feel like I'm getting everything together," Irving said before announcing his drug abuse ban. "I knew I should have done some things differently this off-season, I feel a lot better and get a lot of things done."
Under the Collective Agreement, Irving, when he returns, will be allowed to attend training camp practices and pre-season games before suspension commences before September 9 against the Carolina Panthers.
