FRISCO, Texas (AP) The Dallas Cowboys have offered a second-round tender worth $2.9 million to defensive end David Irving.

The one-year offer on the opening day of free agency Wednesday means the Cowboys will get a second-round pick if another team signs Irving. Dallas can also match any offer.

Irving was suspended the first four games last season for violating the NFLโ€™s ban on performance enhancers and missed the last four with a concussion. In between, he had seven sacks in eight games, second on the team behind Pro Bowl selection DeMarcus Lawrence.

The Cowboys signed Irving off Kansas Cityโ€™s practice squad in 2015. The 24-year-old has 11 sacks over three seasons in Dallas.
