Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving is reportedly being investigated by police for domestic violence, according to the Dallas Morning News.
An officer with the Frisco (Texas) Police Department told the paper a woman identifying herself as Irving’s girlfriend called twice Sunday afternoon and evening to complain about Irving’s actions. According to the News, Irving faces charges of assault with bodily injury, assault by impeding breath and unlawful restraint.
On April 22, the father of my child and my current boyfriend had a vocal argument that spilled out into our front yard. My neighbor’s were concerned and called 911. I was very upset and made some allegations that were false at the time due to our vocal argument and my emotional state. I had no intentions of getting David into trouble, I was just very emotional and upset. I would like to be clear, although our relationship is not perfect, we love one another and David did not put his hands on me at anytime. I am deeply sorry this has caused both of us so much unwanted and undue attention. David is a great father and our focus is working on our relationship and raising our beautiful daughter. I would urge the media to please refrain from spreading this false story.
Despite missing the first four games of the 2017 season to a suspension for violating the NFL’s PED policy, and then sitting out the final four games with concussion issues, Irving still recorded seven sacks on the year.
The 24-year-old Irving will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2018 season.
“I get a lot of Jewish things,” Rosen told NFL Media. “My nose, particularly. I get, like, ‘Stay the f— down, you Jewish bastard … I’m gonna break your f— nose, you Jew.'”
Still Rosen, who went to Catholic school and now considers himself agnostic, says he likes it when people try to get in his head.
“I like away games more than home games,” Rosen said. “I like silencing crowds; that’s a big thing. One of my best games was at Arizona my freshman year. It was ‘College GameDay’ and they had a ton of banners; they had my face on the queen from ‘Frozen’. They had, ‘Josh Rosen’s Bar Mitzvah Wasn’t Even Lit.’
“When people really get into me, it gets my competitive juices flowing. I love seeing heartbroken fans. Some stadiums, the fans are really close to you, and they’ll call you names: ‘Rosen, go back to your hot tub.’ And when you beat them and get to turn around and wave? It’s the best.”
