No Extension Coming This Offseason For Cowboys Defensive End David Irving

Cowboys Defensive End David Irving won’t be getting an extension this offseason according to Pro Football Rumors, as Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones dosen’t seem to feel like a deal is coming anytime soon.

“It’ll be a difficult one and probably, if anything, he needs to put together a full season and consistency and all of that,” Jones said. “Obviously played outstanding when he was healthy. DeMarcus Lawrence put together a full, great year and obviously that’s important. So therefore, I think it’d be real difficult to figure out something long-term with David.”

Last year, Irving turned in a career-high seven sacks, but he missed half of the season with a suspension at the beginning and a concussion at the end. The Cowboys are willing to wait and see what Irving can do over the course of a full season since he will be a restricted free agent this offseason. It seems likely that Dallas will place a second-round tender on him, giving Dallas the option to match any offer and the ability to collect a second-round pick should they choose to not match.
