Cowboys DE Randy Gregory Reinstatement Decision Due Soon

The should know by the end of this week if will be reinstated by the NFL from his indefinite .

Gregory, who has missed nearly two seasons with drug-related bans, requested in May for to allow him to return to football. The exact date of the request isn't known, but multiple sources put it somewhere around May 18-20.

According to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the NFL has 60 days to rule on a request. That would put the approximate deadline no later than this Friday, July 20th.

Gregory was a second-round pick for Dallas in 2015. He was considered to have potentially elite pass-rushing skills but red flags about behavior and drug use hurt his draft stock.

Obviously those warning signs were warranted. Over three seasons, Randy has missed 30 out of 48 games due to suspension.

But reports from around the Cowboys organization and others who've dealt with Gregory rehabilitation efforts are positive. His appeal request appears strong, backed up by several testimonials that he's turned his life around.

Will Roger Goodell agree? Will Randy Gregory return to the Cowboys 2018?

We should know the answer soon.

If Goodell doesn’t let Gregory back on the team, he needs to be picketed… ;^)
