May 31, 2014 AUGUSTA, GA-- Laney's NFL lineman Corvey Irvin spent his weekend in Augusta. Irvin gave his time to some young football players, hoping they can learn from the game he loves.

Right now, the game isn't giving Irvin everything he wants. Even for a four-year NFL vet, there are new lessons to learn.

On Saturday morning, Irvin was back at Laney for his second youth football camp.

Currently, the defensive lineman is in between jobs in the NFL, released by the Lions this month. Irvin was a clear-cut roster casualty after the 2014 draft.

The defensive lineman still has motivation on his side to keep playing. As much as he's learned from the sport, he can still show off a few things.

"It's a performance based business, if you don't perform you'll be out. (The game) also taught me about longevity. I met some great men, great partners (in football). I'm looking forward to getting back in the game this year, and prove my worth," Irvin said.

Irvin has played with four teams in four seasons. In 2013, he spent six games with the Dallas Cowboys. There's no timetable for a new deal. Irvin says he's willing to wait until training camp.
