The sexual assault investigation into Michael Irvin is closed, with the Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Police Department turning over its findings to the State Attorney’s office.

A Fort Lauderdale PD spokesman told Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News that Broward County (Fla.) State Attorney Michael J. Satz now will review the findings and decide whether enough evidence exists to charge the Hall of Fame receiver.

Irvin, 51, has proclaimed his innocence since being accused of drugging and raping a 27-year-old woman at a Florida hotel in March. Irvin considered the woman a long-time friend.

Irvin recently told TMZ that authorities informed his legal team that the rape kit in his sexual assault investigation came back negative.

  1. Irvin considered the woman a longtime friend. Mikey you’re 51, she’s 27. Nine years ago she was in High school, you were 42. Good gravy.

  2. I don’t know what the legal penalties are for falsely accusing someone of rape, but I know that the societal costs are very high. When a highly publicized case like this turns out to be a false allegation, it makes it much more difficult to remove any reasonable doubt from a future jurist’s mind, when they’re deciding the fate of a real rapist. False accusations are very harmful to women. It gives rapists the feeling of invincibility.

  3. Really love this guy on the NFL Network. Hopefully he doesn’t go the way of Darren Sharper, Warren Sapp et al.

  4. Irv is a great dude… took him a while but he’s got his act together. Never believed this for a second.

  5. False accusations? How many times can he have false accusations
    Before people start to believe they may be true. Already at what? 3-4 accusations? I thought bill Cosby was innocent too…….

  6. Michael Irving is pond scum. He was pond scum in his playing days, and he is pond scum now. Hope he pays dearly for his misdeeds. Goodbye, jerk.

    – Seriously, don’t compare Sharper and Sapp. Sapp got caught making an allegedly bad decision in a “I thought I was going to get laid” situation, but Sharper is a monster in human form.

    Seriously.

  8. A leopard never changes his spots. But again, this guy is a pig, not a cat. Shame on NFLN for keeping him when they fire others for lesser offenses. The Playmaker is a sexual assault machine!

    Why are you talking about falsely accusing someone of rape when the investigation has just been closed and we don’t know anything about the facts yet?

    Here’s a question I have. How often do you hear about a “long-time friend” of someone accusing them of something like this?

  10. davebarnes21, why would you call him, “scumbag”? didn’t the article say his rape kit came back negative? we all know irvin’s past can’t society give a person room to evolve and mature? it’s easy to judge and persecute from afar!

  11. so the trolls are just going to ignore the last line? oh never mind I’m giving the trolls too much credit that they can read, let alone comprehend what “came back negative”meant.

    Really? I find him basically illiterate and incomprehensible…

  13. can’t wait for irv to start spouting that religious b.s. like at the hall of fame again.

    he and deion always try talking like church ladies to shore up their base when they get caught doing dirt.

    hypocrite. scumbag. americas team for sure…

  14. i dont believe he raped her, I never did…that being said, the damage is already done in regards to peoples perception of him, his employer and possible future endorsement deals and most certainly his wife and family…

    women need to be held accountable for these false accusations and spend some time in jail themselves which will curb and curtail them yelling rape just for the sake of fame or civil suit money

  16. “somewhere jerrah approves and looks to rape

    And the award for the dumbest thing read on the internet today winner is…

    PS-How exactly would he rape himself?

    Great guy? Sure ‘Canedaddy’! How about Irvin stabbing his teammate in the neck with scissors?
    Or being accused of sexual assault every 10 years?

  18. Ever notice how Irvin always has to touch the guy next to him on NFL Network and Inside the NFL? Very creepy guy…

  19. They need to put these paper chasing bia’s in jail!! many might not like Mike.. but this bull is wrong. I hear what happens in cases like this innocent or guilty.. the bia will take a butt whooping randomly down the road courtiosly of Mikes dime. watch your back bi?!hes here comes a deserved beat down.

  20. Balanced comments here, but I have to wonder all the people calling him a scumbag….did you read the part where the rape kit came back negative?

    I was never an Irvin fan based on his attitude when he was a Cowboy. But watching him these days he seems to have redeemed himself. Making an assumption of guilt in light of what be rather definitive evidence of innocence is irresponsible.

  21. A negative rape kit does NOT prove innocence. Although it is hard to believe that he would have been smart enough to wear protection. If he hadn’t gone into football he would have gone into prison.

  22. 51 yr old married men don’t belong at a hotel alone in a room with 27 yr old young ladies

  23. Irvin is innocent, but past wrongdoing and being a former Cowboy won’t earn him any love from the critics. Don’t think he cares though. Three SB rings and seven figures in the bank.

  24. We all judge that is why we come here… Irvin didn’t win those rings by himself.. and he is scum. long time friend she is 27 he is 51.. did he babysit her ??? child molester too probably

    Dallas….

    ****************************************
    Not sure what you mean by “Dallas”…..as of May 12th, 2017…..Dallas ranked 29th with 17 arrests since 2000. Which is actually few than the Patriots (20 arrests). Minnesota ranks #1 with 49 arrests since 2000.

  27. Great guy? Sure ‘Canedaddy’! How about Irvin stabbing his teammate in the neck with scissors?
    Or being accused of sexual assault every 10 years?
    ——————————————————–

    Accused in 1996 and the woman admitted she made it up. She even went to jail for perjury.

    Accused in 2007 and charges were never filed.

    Accused in 2017 and rape kit came back negative.

    He’s never even been CHARGED with sexual assault, let alone convicted.

    False accusations don’t make you a bad guy.
