Cowboys DE Randy Gregory Expected To Apply For Reinstatement In 2018

Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk reports that suspended Cowboys DE Randy Gregory isn’t expected to apply for reinstatement into the NFL until the offseason.

Daniel B. Moskowitz, the attorney for Gregory, said that his client has “every intention of getting back on the football field.

“Given the sensitivity of this matter, confidentiality of the program and Randy’s privacy, I am unable to comment,” Moskowitz, said. “However, I will confirm Randy has every intention of getting back on the football field.

On Monday, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reported that Gregory is unlikely to be reinstated when he’s eligible to apply on Nov. 6.

A league source explained to Robinson that Gregory is still working through some personal issues right now.

“I think there are still some personal issues to work through,” the source told Robinson. “It’s important that he’s in the right place personally and that might require some additional time.”

“I wouldn’t get into what we’re going to do there and what he’s going to do there,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. “But I do know that as we move forward with the league relative to how we handle a situation like Randy Gregory, his opportunity to play will get better and better. He’s, I think, the classic case of potentially what we ought to consider when we’re looking at some of our substance issues. 

“I’m just going to hold it at that. I don’t want to speculate on whether he’ll be on the field for us here at that time or not.

A report from back in April said that Gregory failed yet another drug test this past February 21.

Gregory is currently serving a suspension for a failed drug test and will miss the entire 2017 season.

Gregory, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Cowboys back in May of last year. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $3.814 million contract that includes $1.404 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Gregory appeared in two games for the Cowboys and recorded nine tackles and a sack.
