The NFL has suspended Cowboys defensive tackle David Irving the first four games of the season for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.
Irving sat out the first four games last season for violation of the league’s performance-enhancing substances policy. It marks the fifth consecutive season the Cowboys will begin the year with a defensive starter suspended. DeMarcus Lawrence, Orlando Scandrick, Rolando McClain, Greg Hardy and Randy Gregory also have served suspensions since 2014.

Such a move undoubtedly would be seen as a publicity stunt — Tebow is 30 and has a .230/.317/.353 slash line in his minor league career. But that doesn’t mean this show shouldn’t get a stop at Citi Field.
I think that’s something I’ll have to figure out, pray about it and see where my heart’s at with everything, Tebow said. How do you put a timetable on dreams or ambition or heart?
