Previously, he had been suspended for the Russell Athletic Bowl at the end of last season because of an unspecified violation of team rules. Miami was hoping Irvin would help form a prolific tight end tandem with Christopher Herndon, much like 2017 NFL Draft first-rounder David Njoku and Herndon did last season. But while Herndon has a team-high 28 catches this se...
