DALLAS -- Former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin says his lawyers have been in contact with police over him being threatened with a gun.

Dallas police said last month they suspended their investigation because Irvin never returned their followup calls.

Irvin said Friday that he filed a police report after the Jan. 12 incident, when two men in another vehicle pointed a gun at him at a stoplight.

The Hall of Famer and broadcast analyst told KTVT-TV that he just returned to the Dallas area Friday morning. Irvin says he was in Tampa, Fla., for the Super Bowl, and then went to Los Angeles.

Police confirm they've been talking to his attorneys. Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse says police have no reason to doubt Irvin.
