Cowboys Headlines - Cowboys Sophomores: DE Randy Gregory 2

My morning routine usually involves getting on the computer for a little bit and catching up with any news that might have happened while I was asleep. So, it was a rare pleasure to wake up and learn that Randy Gregory won his 10-game suspension appeal.

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory has won his 10-game suspension appeal, so he remains out 4 games, source said (as @clarencehilljr reported). Big.

This is really good news for both Randy Gregory and the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are in desperate need of help at the defensive end position and Gregory can now return with DeMarcus Lawrence Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

No one really knows Gregory's state of mind or what kind of football shape he might be in, since there hasn't been a lot of news about him since he entered rehab. The only thing we do know for sure is that Randy Gregory is still in rehab.

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory, who won his appeal for a 10-gm suspension, is still in rehab and doing well. We'll see if this was a wakeup call

I think we are all hoping that this is indeed a wake-up call for Gregory. It seems we've been down this road before, so I will personally be hoping for the best, while preparing for the worst. I think the Dallas Cowboys would be wise to take the same approach as well, especially after the Rolando McClain situation.

Hopefully Randy Gregory can take advantage of this opportunity and get both his personal and professional life back in order. Despite still facing a four-game suspension, he seems to be heading down the right path at least.

Now, I would like to take Ian Rappaport's word that Randy Gregory has indeed won his 10-game suspension appeal, but there seems to be some sort of confusion.

Clarification: Randy Gregory will be back around team in Week 2. But sources say no final decision been made on reducing 10-game suspension.

Ian Rapoport isn't known for jumping the gun on these types of things, so we will be following this situation very closely here at Inside The Star and update any news regarding Randy Gregory accordingly.

Update - 11:27 am

Ian Rapoport has released some clarification on his previous reports...

Clarity on Randy Gregory: What became official yesterday was his 4-games. Nothing official yet on his 10-games appeal. Still pending.

REPORT: Dallas Cowboys Re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur is returning for his 15th season as the Cowboys' long snapper. The veteran free agent was re-signed by Dalals today to a one-year deal.

Thanks to Jason Witten's one-year sabbatical with Monday Night Football, Ladouceur has now been with the Cowboys for more consecutive seasons than any current player. He just turned 38 last week, but Louis-Philippe remains one of the top long snappers in football.

Todd Archer on Twitter

The Cowboys have signed long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur to a one-year deal worth $1.03 million and $90,000 in bonus money, but he will count $735,000 against the cap. This will be Ladouceur's 15th season with the Cowboys, tying Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Mark... https://t.co/2iDsi6RX7e

Retaining Ladouceur is an underrated move for the Cowboys given their situation at kicker.

Brett Maher was only 80% accurate overall on field goals last year. The team could be considering an upgrade in free agency.

Whether they bring Maher back or try someone new, having a long snapper with Ladouceur's performance perfection will make things much easier for them.

REPORT: Police Detain Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford After Bar Fight

Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford Kicked Off Thursday Flight

According to TMZ, Tyrone Crawford was involved in a brawl at a bar in Panama City, FL last Friday night. The Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman and team captain was detained by police but apparently was not arrested.

The level of Crawford's involvement has not been substantiated, but TMZ's report does have him shoving police officers at some point in the action. The incident was reportedly captured by surveillance equipment at the bar.

Given that he was not arrested, one could assume that Tyrone was not one of the primary players in the melee. But that doesn't mean the NFL won't still review this matter as it relates to the personal conduct policy, and Cowboys fans know too well how "fair" that process can be.

This is certainly not a story you'd expect to see attached to Tyrone Crawford, who has been a model citizen and leader since entering the league in 2012.

Dallas elected to keep Crawford this season despite solid potential savings. He will count $10.1 million against their 2019 salary cap, which is high for his average production. However, he can play multiple positions and is one of their most experienced players.

Even if Tyrone were to get suspended by the league, it likely wouldn't be more than a one or two-game ban given his record and reputation. It shouldn't change anything about his status with the team.

REPORT: Cowboys Visiting With Free Agent S Eric Berry Tuesday

REPORT: Cowboys Visiting With Free Agent S Eric Berry Tuesday

According to Ian Rapoport, the Dallas Cowboys have a meeting scheduled to visit with Free Agent Safety Eric Berry Tuesday at The Star.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter

Source: Former #Chiefs S and new free agent Eric Berry is visiting the #Cowboys on Tuesday. His first visit. They have a need there...

Eric Berry has spent his entire career with the Kansas City Chiefs after they drafted him fifth overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. After signing Earl Thomas last week, the Chiefs decided to part ways with their former All-Pro Safety.

Berry, 30 is an intriguing free agent for the Dallas Cowboys. When healthy, he is arguably one of the best safeties in the league. Unfortunately, injuries have kept him off the field these last few seasons causing him to only start in only three games since 2016.

This is a move many of us expected to happen after the Cowboys decided not to get into a bidding war for Earl Thomas, a player linked to Dallas for over a year now. In Berry, Cowboys Nation would be getting a similar player with the same kind of red flags. Both Thomas and Berry have to be approached with caution due to their injury history the past few years.

Depending on his asking price, Eric Berry absolutely makes sense for the Dallas Cowboys. He would be an upgrade over Jeff Heath and would pair well with the Cowboys up-and-coming three-year safety Xavier Woods.

This is still just a visit, so we should probably get our hopes up that a signing is imminent. But, I think we can all agree Eric Berry is exactly the "right kind of guy" Jason Garrett is always preaching about. He's a cancer survivor, five-time Pro Bowler, and All-Pro player. What's not to like!?
