UPDATE: According to reports, Cowboys DE Randy Gregory is in the process of filing for reinstatement from the NFL.
Gregory, a former 2015 second-round pick, has only played in 14 career games since entering the league.
Gregory, 25, missed four games during his rookie season due to a high-ankle sprain, but still managed to appear in 12 games.
However, Gregory’s troubles began in 2016 when he was suspended a total of 14 games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy twice. In result, Gregory played in the team’s final two regular season games before being suspended for an entire year following a third failed drug test.
Gregory missed the entire 2017 season due to suspension, but it appears he is making an attempt to regain eligibility for the upcoming 2018 season.
Gregory has spent time at multiple drug rehab centers and is reportedly in good physical and mental shape.
While his chance for reinstatement is far from guaranteed, Gregory is certainly looking into the matter and is hoping to get another opportunity to play.
It’s worth noting that the last two years have not counted as accrued seasons toward Gregory’s free-agent status. With that being said, the Cowboys will have him under contract through 2020 if he is granted reinstatement.
Stay tuned for more.
