FRISCO - Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving attended all three days of the team's mandatory minicamp this week after missing organized team activities. Yet, he worked on conditioning off to the side, meaning he didn't take part in any of Dallas' 12 minicamp and OTA practices.
After Thursday's final practice, which concludes Dallas' offseason program, he met with reporters for the first time about his tumultuous offseason.
"I wasn't here because I chose not to be here," Irving said. "If I could've come I would've, but I couldn't for certain days, so I didn't. It has nothing to do with me being out of shape. The media or coaches even put it out there. But the real reason is really none of the public's business right now."
Irving was accused of domestic violence in April, but Angela Sanchez, his former girlfriend and the mother of his 5-year-old daughter, Zoe, later recanted the allegations and Frisco police closed the investigation.
Coach Jason Garrett initially said Irving was missing OTAs because he was out of shape, and Garrett and teammates also later alluded to Irving's off-field issues.
