Biography

The Dallas Cowboys signed David Irving off of the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad to provide the team with young depth at the edge rusher position, and he came in and played in 12 games in 2015 after being added to the roster. Irving also provides Dallas with a kick blocking threat on special teams units as he blocked a field goal for Dallas, continuing his collegiate trend where he blocked three kicks. Irving signed with Kansas City as a rookie free agent fol- lowing the 2015 NFL Draft. He returned in 2016 to play in 15 games with his first two career starts and showed flashes of his big-play ability, posting four sacks, five tackles for losses, 26 pressures, five breakups and four forced fumbles - three coming in one game. Irving returns in 2017 with the hopes of wreaking havoc along the line of scrimmage.
