Bruce Irvin preps for final work before suspension


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin is set to play extensively in Thursday's preseason finale against the Raiders, according to the Seattle Times. Irvin will need to make that playing time count, as it will be the last time he takes the field for the Seahawks until Week 5, as he must open the season serving a four-game performance-enhancing drug suspension.

"I'm excited, but at the same time it's hard because I'm going to be gone from these guys for four weeks," Irvin said. "I'm just going to go out there and bust my tail and make them miss me when I'm gone."

Once Irvin returns, he will be playing a new position, one he doesn't have much experience working at. Irvin is making the move to outside linebacker, and Thursday will be his last chance to get game experience at the new position. He has been limited through the preseason by a groin injury, playing just seven snaps against the Packers last week.

Bruce Irvin switching positions


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/10/2013) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wants to move Bruce Irvin from defensive end to outside linebacker this season, reports the Tacoma News Tribune.

Irvin, who led all rookies with eight sacks last year, will remain one of Seattle's main pass rushers on third down. Carroll believes the transition for Irvin will be an easy one.

"He's extremely versatile, and that's why we've loved him from the start," Carroll said. "He's really fast. He's 250 pounds, and he's exactly fitting the right kind of body type to play outside backer in the 3-4 system. We're a 4-3 personnel system that plays 3-4 looks. He's extremely valuable for us."

Irvin will miss the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's policy for PEDs, reportedly testing positive for Adderall.

Irvin is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games. "I want to apologize to my teammates, coaches and Seahawks fans for making a mistake when I took a substance that is prohibited in the NFL without a medical exemption," Irvin said in a statement. "I am extremely disappointed in the poor judgment I showed and take full responsibility for my actions. I will not appeal the discipline and instead will focus my energy on preparing for the season so I can begin earning your trust and respect again. I look forward to contributing to the team the moment I return."
