Police in a Dallas suburb are investigating a domestic violence complaint against Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving from a woman who later recanted.
Frisco police spokesman Radd Rotello said Monday no arrests have been made.
Rotello said a woman identified as Irving's girlfriend called police twice Sunday. After several media reports Monday Mike Remmers Jersey , the woman wrote in a message posted on Instagram that her allegations were false. She said she was upset over an argument that led to neighbors calling 911.
"David did not put his hands on me at any time," the woman wrote.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league will look into the incident. A spokesman for the team and Irving's agent declined comment.
Irving recently signed a 2018 second-round tender worth $2.9 million as a restricted free agent. He is eligible for unrestricted free agency after the upcoming season.
The 24-year-old Irving was suspended the first four games last season for violating the NFL's ban on performance enhancers. He had seven sacks in eight games before missing the last four games with a concussion.
The Cowboys picked up Irving off Kansas City's practice squad in 2015. He has 11 sacks over three seasons in Dallas.
Jarvis Landry is now under contract with the Miami Dolphins, easing the path to a potential trade.
The three-time Pro Bowl receiver signed his $16 million Jeremy Hill Jersey , one-year franchise tag Thursday, a person familiar with the situation said. The person confirmed the signing to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins hadn’t announced it.
The Dolphins have been shopping Landry, and the procedural move allows them to trade him as early as next Wednesday Chris Ivory Jersey , when the NFL’s new year begins.
Miami gave Landry the franchise tag last month. He made $894,000 last season, when he led the NFL with 112 catches.
Landry has said he wanted to remain with the Dolphins Mason Crosby Jersey , and they said they wanted him back. But the parties have been unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal, and Landry’s volatile personality has become a cause for concern in Miami.
The franchise tag allows Landry to sign an offer sheet with another team. The Dolphins could match that offer, and if Landry leaves B.J. Goodson Jersey , they would receive two first-round picks from his new team.
More likely is another team working out a contract extension with Landry and then trading for him.
He has been selected to three consecutive Pro Bowls and has 400 career receptions, a record for a fourth-year player.
