Irving has just barely got himself into position as a good ST guy. He's had some snaps on D as a rookie and in his 2nd year, but did he really do anything noteworthy? Anything that stood out? Trevathan got more snaps than Irving did. The staff was waiting for DJ to come back, they didn't even consider Irving, it was Trevathan and hope DJ could come back and contribute.
