The Dallas Cowboys officially activated DE Randy Gregory on Tuesday after his roster exemption expired.
The Cowboys also waived WR Ventrell Bryant (injured reserve) and DB Saivion Smith.
Gregory was officially reinstated from suspension by the NFL last month. He missed the entire 2019 season due to his suspension and hasn’t played since 2018.
Gregory, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2015. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $3.814 million contract that includes $1.404 million guaranteed and stood to make a base salary of $955,217 for the 2019 season when the Cowboys signed him to a one-year extension in April of last year that will run through the 2020 season.
Gregory was later placed on the suspended list at the start of the 2019 season.
Gregory has been suspended four times since he was drafted back in 2015. The latest came in February of last year, which resulted in an indefinite ban from the NFL for violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement.
The Cowboys signed Gregory to a one-year extension worth up to $2.1 million through the 2021 season that included a $200,000 signing bonus.
For his career, Gregory has appeared in 28 games for the Cowboys and recorded seven sacks, two forced fumbles and a recovery.
