Cowboys DE Randy Gregory Facing “At Least” A 10-Game Suspension, Possible He May Never Play Again

Update:

According to Ian Rapoport, Cowboys DE Randy Gregory‘s new suspension is likely to be “at least” a 10-game ban, and there’s even some concern he may never play in the NFL again.

  • Rapoport adds that there is real worry regarding Gregory, as he’s reportedly shut out some people close to him.

Adam Schefter and Todd Archer are reporting that Cowboys DE Randy Gregory had another violation of NFL’s substance abuse policy and is now facing a longer suspension.

  • ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that Gregory has entered a treatment facility and is not expected to report to training camp this week.

It was clear that Gregory was a major risk for an NFL team to take on last year, which led to him dropping to the end of the round two, even though he was viewed as a top-ten talent at the time.

However, this has gone even worse that the Cowboys thought and it seems like his playing career has quickly become an afterthought.

Gregory received a four-game suspension back in February for a violation of the NFL substance-abuse policy. He failed four drug tests, per the NFL’s drug policy with the first violation coming at the combine.

Gregory, 23, is in the second year of his four-year, $3.814 million contract that includes $1.404 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2015, Gregory appeared in 12 games for the Cowboys and recorded 11 tackles and no sacks.
