The Indianapolis Colts held a tryout for former Dallas Cowboys and Las Vegas Raiders defensive end David Irving, per the league’s transaction wire Tuesday.

Irving gained notoriety with the Dallas Cowboys (2015-2018) but initially signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He was signed to the Raiders practice squad in 2020 after being reinstated from suspension by the league.

In 39 career games, Irving has recorded 12.5 sacks, 30 quarterback hits and 17 tackles for loss. He has been suspended multiple times by the league. In 2017, he was suspended four games for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

In 2018, he was suspended for another four games for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy and was suspended indefinitely in 2019 for the same thing. He was conditionally reinstated during the 2020 season but only appeared in two games for the Raiders.

The Colts have a massive need at edge rusher this offseason so it will be interesting if this workout will turn into a contract for Irving to prove himself.
