According to Slater, Cowboys LB Sean Lee was among the teammates offering character statements and testified that Gregory has earned another opportunity.
Slater says that sources close to the situation have said that Gregory has passed “a number of drug tests” over the past few years and has spent over six weeks in intensive drug and alcohol rehabilitation in the hope of being reinstated.
“Talking to people close to the situation, they tell me he’s passed a number of drug tests over the last couple of years,” Slater said. “He’s also been able to maintain and he wants to rejoin this Cowboys organization, something that he has been incredible committed to.”
Gregory wound up missing the entire 2017 season while serving a suspension for another failed drug test.
