    What is latest on Randy Gregory

    I thought that they had until May 10th as the deadline to apply for reinstatement

    Maybe I was mistaken and its actually the 15th. Everyone that is talking about his reinstatement is saying that hes pretty much assured to be reinstated. Thats why they went so overboard with the 2000 page bullshit

    Hes got a lot to prove before I even consider giving a shit about this kid

    They say he appears to be in better shape than he was the last time he played in 2016

    I sure hope so. Hes had 2 years to get his shit together

    Hopefully he can make it back and be worth a damn

    But Im not holding my breath

    I'm not holding my breath either. I had already written him off. So I can only be pleasantly surprised by anything positive from the guy.

    Its apparently official now. Gregory will be applying for reinstatement tomorrow (Thursday)

    By all accounts it looks like hes done what he needed to do to get reinstated and has passed a number of consecutive drug tests

    Maybe he will be back in time for preseason.

    If he gets reinstated he better show up to training camp in the best shape of his life and ready to kick some ass

    His entire career consists of 14 games and 1 single sack since we drafted him in 2015. He better ball out! Otherwise it will have been 3 years totally wasted on this kid and another blown 2nd round pick

    By Kate Hairopoulos and Jori Epstein


    GRAPEVINE - Randy Gregory will apply for reinstatement to the NFL this week, according to a source, with hopes that the defensive end's ban from the league could be removed in time for the start of Cowboys' training camp in late July in Southern California.

    Gregory, Dallas' second-round draft pick in 2015, was kicked out of the league for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. He hasn't played since the Cowboys' final regular season game of the 2016 season.

    But there is a growing, yet ever-so-cautious optimism among team officials that Gregory could return for the 2018 season. A handful of teammates and several other acquaintances have already voiced their support for Gregory to the NFL.

    "He's being very diligent in preparing his information and preparing his application," owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday from the team's annual golf tournament for sponsors at Cowboys Golf Club. "I have been proud of Randy during this offseason. I've been very aware of how hard he's working to get back in the league and get back on the field."

    Cowboys defensive end Tyrone Crawford said Wednesday that he has put in his "two cents" with the league on behalf of Gregory. Linebacker Sean Lee and safety Jeff Heath also wrote statements, a source told SportsDay.

    "It's best he's back in the locker room, he's back around us," Crawford said. "I think it will be good for him and good for us."

    According to the NFL's policy on substance abuse, here are the steps Gregory or any other player must take in order to apply for reinstatement:

    His application should include all pertinent information about his treatment, abstinence from substance abuse during his banishment period, incidents resulting from substance abuse and arrests/convictions for any criminal activity.

    Once the application has been received by Commissioner Roger Goodell, Gregory will be interviewed by the established medical director and medical advisor within 45 days. Then a recommendation will be made to Goodell.


    Gregory must give Goodell's staff and the staff of the NFL Players Association's executive director access to medical records on his substance abuse history. This includes attendance at counseling sessions, 12-step and other self-help group meetings.

    Gregory will have to submit to urine testing by an NFL representative at a frequency determined by the medical advisor.

    Gregory will have to agree in a meeting with Goodell or his representative to comply with certain conditions for reinstatement.

    The policy is set up for Goodell to render a decision within 60 days of receiving an application, but that is based on all the required information being available in that time frame.


    The Cowboys drafted Gregory knowing full well that they were taking a risk.

    He tested positive for marijuana in February 2015 at the NFL Scouting Combine and entered the league in the first stage of its substance abuse program. He had twice tested positive for pot while playing for Nebraska.

    Gregory checked into a treatment center during the summer of 2016, but left the facility for a weekend, sources said at the time, and missed a scheduled test. A missed test carries the same weight as a failed test once a player is in the NFL's program.

    He opened the 2016 season with a four-game suspension and then had another 10-game penalty applied for another violation. He played the final two games of the regular season while an appeal was pending, but could not play in the postseason game.

    In all, Gregory has totaled one sack in 14 games. He's failed or missed at least five drugs tests while a member of the Cowboys.

    "First and foremost, we're more concerned with Randy fixing himself off the field," executive vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday. "I applaud him. I think he's worked hard to get to this point that he can apply for reinstatement.

    "...By no stretch are we just saying, 'Hey, we're going to bank on that.' We're still thinking about him and hoping he gets everything done the right way off the field. And then good things will happen for him."

    I was listening to some show on one of the sports radio shows on Sirius/XM yesterday, whoever it was they were interviewing was saying they thought Gregory would be reinstated in time for TC to start. Not sure who the guy was but it wasn't a voice I recognized.
    This needs to be the final season of Garrett & his staff. The greatest coaches on the planet should be candidates to lead the best org in sports. The days of teams blowing the Cowboys doors off in halftime adjustments needs to end. Time for change, new direction and a new voice
