Today is #VictoryPoloMonday. It was supposed to be 100% awesome. Then this happened.
Cowboys DE Randy Gregory withdrew appeal of his 10-game suspension for multiple violations of NFL’s Substance… https://t.co/uKFYWf66qy
This is one of the weirdest things to happen concerning the Dallas Cowboys in quite some time. Randy Gregory, second-year Defensive End who the Cowboys took at 60th Overall last year, is knowingly and intentionally withdrawing a suspension appeal that, if won, would allow him to be playing for his team in just three weeks.
Such is the case because Randy is already serving a four-game suspension that preceded this ten-game one. His withdrawal makes absolutely no sense based on the information at hand.
Gregory missed all of Training Camp while in rehab, is he potentially going back? Does Randy Gregory simply not care anymore? The confusion is at an all-time high regarding a player with an incredible ability to get after opposing quarterbacks.
It was less than a month ago that hope was high for Gregory, as the Cowboys intentionally gave him a locker at their new facility – The Star. The Cowboys have had some epic failures when it comes to players they’ve drafted in the second round, and this is just the latest chapter in the saga.
For now all we can do is speculate on Randy Gregory’s intentions with withdrawing his appeal. It’s bad news for a defense who, despite coming alive late in Week 2, is incredibly suspect. This team was hoping that Randy Gregory would return this season and now it’s all but definite that he won’t. Gulp.
