Following a complaint from a lady regarding alleged misbehavior during a Feb. 5 contact between the two in Arizona, NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin has reportedly been removed from both NFL Network and ESPN’s Super Bowl coverage for the balance of the week.
Irvin states that the interaction was quick and in public, as well as mostly non-physical, with the only physical contact between them being a handshake as they parted ways.
Irvin works for NFL Media but also contributes to ESPN. Neither firm has commented on the specifics of the case or the allegations made by the lady.
