Randy Gregory Withdraws Suspension Appeal, Cannot Return Until Week 15

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.

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let’s roll.

    There has to be more to this story. The first question is “under what grounds was he appealing in the first place?” if he was due to get 10 weeks I assume there was a case for it. Since it was never officially announced in the first place how did he appeal it? I also assume he is withdrawing it with full knowledge and support of team ownership. I know I’m doing a lot of assuming here but all we can do is speculate until the story unfolds and hopefully it will. Cmon D-Law! On a positive note, despite the negative stuff that has been said the first couple games I am seeing some good things from the line. I thought Maliek Collins looked pretty good Sunday and Terrell McClain has looked good. Each guy on the line has shown flashes and I believe it’s just a matter of time before they begin to gel.

    I think the team may have been the ones to urge him to make this decision. Now that he’s rejoined the team in practice, they may have seen how much work he needs to really get back to playing shape. This allows him to be carried for most of the year without costing them a roster spot.
