Lions released DT Corvey Irvin.
Irvin made three tackles in six games for the Cowboys last season but was released in March. It wasn't a good sign that he couldn't stick on arguably the league's shallowest defensive line in Dallas. Irvin just turned 29 this month. Mon, May 19, 2014 06:52:00 PM

Lions signed DT Corvey Irvin, formerly of the Cowboys.

Irvin was released by the Cowboys last week. Irvin appeared in only six games last season, notching three tackles. Two months shy of his 29th birthday, Irvin will need an impressive camp to crack the 53-man roster.

Cowboys waived/released DT Corvey Irvin, T/G Jeff Olson, and OG Ray Dominguez.

Irvin performed poorly in a limited 2013 role, while Olson and Dominguez both failed to get on the field. They're minor moves aimed at creating small amounts of cap room as the Cowboys struggle to get their finances in order.

Cowboys signed DT Corvey Irvin.

He's taking the roster spot of LB Caesar Rayford. Irvin has made 18 career appearances, including 12 for the Bucs last season. He'll provide depth for the Cowboys' banged up defensive line.
Tue, Nov 12, 2013 07:41:00 PM

Bears signed DTs Corvey Irvin and Christian Tupou, CB Maurice Jones, and WR Demetrius Fields.

These players earned contracts with solid performance at rookie minicamp. Irvin is the most notable name. A third-round pick in 2009 out of Georgia, Irvin has bounced between the Panthers, Bucs, Lions, and Jaguars' rosters.
Mon, May 13, 2013 05:34:00 PM

Bucs released DT Corvey Irvin and waived CB James Rogers and G Derek Hardman.

Irvin, 28 tomorrow, recorded six tackles in 12 games for the Bucs last season. He was made expendable after the team drafted three defensive linemen.
Thu, May 2, 2013 05:14:00 PM

Bucs claimed DT Corvey Irvin off waivers from the Jaguars.

The No. 93 pick of the 2009 draft, Irvin has appeared in just six career games. He's unlikely to stick in Tampa.

Jaguars signed DT Corvey Irvin from their practice squad.

Irvin was waived by the Panthers in early September after running as a starter in training camp. He'll add depth on the interior with run-plugging NT "Pot Roast" Knighton expected to miss another game.

Lions signed DT Corvey Irvin to their practice squad

Irvin never panned out as a 2009 third-round pick in Carolina, but the Lions likely had a high grade on him coming out of Georgia. Irvin might move up to the active roster if Nick Fairley suffers a setback with his stress fracture.
Mon, Sep 5, 2011 02:13:00 AM

Panthers waived DT Corvey Irvin, DT Nick Hayden, CB Kendric Burney, OL John Gianninoto, DE Malcolm Tatum, WR Darvin Adams, and DT Deljuan Robinson.

The Panthers are now down to 70 players; this is no easy process. Burney and Adams are expected to receive practice squad consideration in Carolina. Adams was Cam Newton's pal at Auburn. Irvin has busted as a former third-round pick.

Panthers signed DT Corvey Irvin from their practice squad.

A third-round pick out of Georgia last year, Irvin is just a body for the stretch run.
Tue, Dec 14, 2010 04:41:00 PM

Panthers waived DT Corvey Irvin.

The Panthers have now cut two former third-round defensive tackles in one day. Irvin was coming off a torn MCL and never lived up to his potential out of Georgia anyway.
Sat, Sep 4, 2010 04:32:00 PM

Panthers placed DT Corvey Irvin on injured reserve with a torn MCL, ending his season.

You're not going to find a worse interior defensive line situation in the league. Irvin, a third-round pick, was being counted on for a big role with Ma'ake Kemoeatu out for the year. For fantasy running back matchups, remember that Carolina's defense projects to be very poor against the run.
Sat, Sep 5, 2009 06:43:00 PM

Panthers agreed to terms with third-round DT Corvey Irvin on a four-year, $2.42 milloin contract, including a $670,000 signing bonus.

All Carolina's rookies are signed save Sherrod Martin. Irvin's play didn't stand out in any area at Georgia, but he's being counted on for a big role behind Ma'ake Kemoeatu and Damione Lewis. The Panthers are thin on both lines.
Mon, Jul 27, 2009 01:23:00 PM

Panthers selected Georgia DT Corvey Irvin with the No. 93 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Irvin offers size potential at 6'3/301, although he doesn't do anything especially well. His 8.5 tackles for loss as a senior doesn't show dominating penetration ability. He's another body Carolina is desperate for inside.
