Defensive end David Irving, who played the last four years with the Dallas Cowboys and now suspended indefinitely by the National Football League for violating the substance abuse policy, smoked marijuana during a rant on Instagram Thursday night and said he is done with the NFL.

Dallas Cowboys' David Irving is giving up football because he doesn't want to give up his marijuana. "It's a lot of reasons why I've come to this decision".

Last week, Irving was suspended for violating the NFL's policy on substance abuse.

The NFL has suspended more than 30 players since the beginning of 2018 for substance abuse violations, many of which are as a result of testing positive for marijuana. However, I don't love the NFL.

"I appreciate my true fans who appreciated me for who I am, not for the whole football stuff because football does not define me", he said. However, I don't love the NFL. We've seen it countless times from Kobe Bryant's Players' Tribune poem, Marshawn Lynch's cleats on a wire and even Jared Allen riding off into the "sunset." This is the third suspension of Irving's career, all three being drug related.

Irving retires having made just over $3.6 million since joining the league in 2015 as an undrafted free agent from Iowa State.

He won the National League Rookie of the Year Award in 1967 and received three NL Cy Young Awards as the league's best pitcher. Bud Harrelson, another former teammate of Seaver's, recalled telling teammates to be prepared when they meet with him.

He added: "Some people say 'you're addicted to weed, you're addicted to this and that'". The s- they did with Kap (Colin Kaepernick).

"As you know I've voiced my opinion about this medicine right here", he said, holding up what appeared to be a joint. I'm living with it. I'm not playing for free ...

"If I'm going to be addicted to something I'd rather it was marijuana, which is medical".

Meanwhile, in the National Football League, players can get tested at any time of the year, no matter if its during season or off season. How many UFC players getting in trouble? "I stand up for what I believe in", he said, according to the New York Post. "I'll Kaepernick myself before they Kaepernick my a*s. football does not define me". Oh, incidentally, he was smoking weed during the announcement.
