Michael Irvin is ‘baffled’ about what it going on this week.
The Hall of Famer will not be seen on the NFL Network airwaves for the remainder of Super Bowl week after a woman filed a complaint against him. An unnamed woman said she had an inappropriate encounter with the former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver on Sunday in Glendale, Arizona.
The former wide receiver denied any wrongdoings in an interview with Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. Irvin noted that the interaction happened after dinner and drinks with former NFL player Michael Brooks.
“Honestly, I’m a bit baffled with it all,” Irvin said. “This all happened in a 45-second conversation in the lobby. When I got back after going out … I came into the lobby and I talked to somebody. I talked to this girl. I don’t know her, and I talked to her for about 45 seconds. We shook hands. Then, I left. … That’s all I know.”
“I don’t really recall that conversation, to tell you the truth,” Irvin said. “We were out drinking. It was just a friendly conversation. ‘What’s up?’ I don’t even know.… I am totally perplexed.”
The 56-year-old participated in NFL Network’s “Super Bowl Opening Night” coverage and interviewed Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Irvin claimed there “absolutely was no sexual wrongdoing.”
Irvin also routinely appears on ESPN, and they have not sent out a memo to state he won’t be appearing on the show as of yet.
The details of the woman’s complaint were not released.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
