Dallas converted $310,000 of Gregory’s existing 2019 salary to a signing bonus. The added contract year is worth $735,000 and has an escalator that can raise the base salary.
At the moment, Gregory is suspended indefinitely for violating the league’s Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse and the terms of his conditional reinstatement.
This is now the fourth suspension for Gregory, who has battled substance abuse issues dating back to his time at Nebraska. He wound up missing the entire 2017 season while serving a suspension for another failed drug test before being conditionally reinstated last year.
Gregory, 26, 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.
In 2018, Gregory appeared in 14 games for the Cowboys and recorded 25 tackles, six sacks, two forced fumbles and a recovery. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 75 edge rusher out of 103 qualifying players.
