Michael Irvin Settles Lawsuit With Marriott, Returns To NFL Network
11th September 2023

Michael Irvin was back analyzing games on the NFL Network on Sunday … after he settled his $100 million defamation lawsuit against Marriott.

The Dallas Cowboys legend was all smiles on “NFL Gameday Morning” as he was introduced by host Rich Eisen … saying on the show, “It’s good to be here.”

The appearance marked the first time Irvin had been on the network since February … after he had been suspended following allegations that he was inappropriate with a Marriott employee during Super Bowl week in Phoenix.

The worker — who Irvin ID’ed as Jane Doe in court documents — alleged that Irvin had stopped her near the hotel’s bar, told her she was attractive … and then asked her “whether she knew anything about having a ‘big Black man inside of [her].'”

Irvin was adamant the claims were not true … and he filed a lawsuit against Marriott a short time later, saying the Hotel giant’s “employees and management inaccurately and inflammatorily accused Mr. Irvin of misconduct to the National Football League” — costing him tens of millions of dollars. Irvin and his attorney, Levi McCathern, released video of the apparent interaction between the two — and said it showed nothing more than a brief, innocuous conversation.

According to the Dallas Morning News, the parties reached a settlement recently … which paved the way for Irvin’s return to NFL N. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed publicly.

For the NFL Network’s part, a spokesperson told the DMN, “Michael Irvin has been reinstated and will be a part of NFL Network’s coverage of the 2023 season.”
