A day after the Colts brought Irving in, the Lions followed suit. Irving was in Detroit for a visit, per Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter).

Irving, 27, has run into multiple suspensions — for substance abuse and performance-enhancing drugs — and has only played in four games over the past three seasons. Still, the potential the former undrafted free agent showed prior to that has likely continued to keep him on the radar. In eight games with the 2017 Cowboys, Irving registered seven sacks. In 15 games with the 2016 Dallas squad that earned the NFC’s No. 1 seed, Irving tallied four sacks and 15 quarterback hits.
