Irvin answers the lawsuit filed against him - by filing lawsuit

New, comments

Yesterday, I wrote that I hoped the lawsuit filed against Michael Irvin wasn’t true. Well, it turns out Irvin has a different side of the story, which can be found here.

After a lawsuit alleged that he assaulted a contractor hired to install a fountain at his Plano home, former Cowboys star Michael Irvin on Tuesday filed suit against the contractor and his attorney, claiming, among other things, extortion, duress and slander.

"This is about blackmail," Mr. Irvin told The Dallas Morning News.

Irvin and his lawyers make a pretty good case that this is about nothing more than extorting money.

Found this item on SI.com. While not directly related to the Cowboys, it sounds like teams are looking at the same three corners in the same pick range that the Cowboys are in.

Cornerback is a position the Jets are also looking to address in the draft and they're believed to be eyeing Aaron Ross (Texas), Darrelle Revis (Pittsburgh) and Chris Houston (Arkansas) with their first-round pick (25th overall). All are expected to visit the Jets' training complex later this month. -- Newark Star-Ledger
