Published on by The Football Feed in NFL News

According to sources from The Dallas Morning News, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department have called to a close their investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Michael Irvin.

Irvin played for the Dallas Cowboys from 1988-1999, winning 3 Super Bowls while making 750 receptions for 11,904 yards and 65 receiving touchdowns. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on August 4, 2007.

The allegations against him stem from an incident in March, 2017 that the police have been investigating. Irvin has not been arrested or officially charged, and has denied all the accusations against him.

While the investigation has been closed, the case is far from over.

The findings from the investigation will be handed over to the Broward County State's Attorney, were they will be evaluated. If substantial evidence was indeed found, Irvin could be charged. If not, the case will be dropped.

Irvin said that his lawyers informed him that the rape kit did not come back positive, and reiterated that he believes he will be exonerated of all charges very soon.

The Fort Lauderdale Police Department could not back up that claim, saying they can not comment on a pending case.

Irvin has been charged with drugging and sexually assaulting a 27-year-old woman, who he said had been a long time friend.
