Like many fans around the country, David Irving was not a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, but his situation was different since he was signed to play for them.
Irving had been suspended indefinitely in March 2019 for repeated violations of the league’s old substance abuse policy, but has since been reinstated and would find himself on the Raiders.
Last week, the team decided to re-sign him to play in 2021.
In an interview with Vic Tafur of TheAthletic.com, Irving made it clear that he likes playing in Las Vegas for head coach Jon Gruden and General Manger Mike Mayock, but he did not have too much good to say about his former employer.
“I hated going to work for the Cowboys,” Irving said. “A Cowboy is all ‘hardy har har’ and all this America’s Team stuff. I belong in Las Vegas with the Raiders.”
“I love Coach Gruden. He is my type. I couldn’t say the same for Jason Garrett.”
During four seasons with the Cowboys — Irving recorded 12.5 sacks in 39 games.
