  • Randy Gregory met with Roger Goodell on Tuesday

    Less than a month after applying for NFL reinstatement, suspended Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory has an audience with the Commissioner.

    Gregory met Tuesday with Roger Goodell for his official reinstatement hearing, NFL Network's Jane Slater reported, via sources informed of the situation.

    All-Pro linebacker Sean Lee was among the teammates offering character statements, testifying that Gregory has earned another opportunity, Slater added.

    The Cowboys' 2015 second-round draft pick has been suspended three times, including last year's season-long ban for violating the NFL's Policy for Substances of Abuse.

    In addition to undergoing counseling, the 25-year-old has spent more than six weeks in intensive drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

    "Talking to people close to the situation," Slater explained, "they tell me he's passed a number of drug tests over the last couple of years. He's also been able to maintain employment and he wants to rejoin this Cowboys organization, something that he has been incredibly committed to."

    If Goodell clears Gregory for a return in time for next month's training camp, Dallas' coaching staff will have to figure out how to utilize a talented but enigmatic pass rusher with one sack in 14 career NFL games.

        Does that mean you’re openly rooting for him?

          Yeah, I hope he overcomes this deal.

          Even if he leaves Dallas and plays for another team, I admire the guy for working hard to come back and approaching the situation the way he has to in order to do what he loves.

          Pot laws are bullshit, but he's not using it as an excuse.

          Not sure that I have any faith in him to be a commodity on the field, but I'm glad he didn't just give up and say "fuck it".

            Same here. I am actively pulling for him. He took the anti-Ricky Williams approach and has busted his ass to get back playing. This shows just how much he loves the game. If he can stay clean you know you won't have to worry about his work ethic.

                90% chance he puts up 8 sacks this year.

                • Given Goodell and the Cowboy organization's rocky relationship in recent years, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see Goodell drag his feet on a decision.

                  There are absolutely no pressing issues going on at the moment, yet I could see Goodell waiting until late-August to make a decision.....purely out of spite.

                  • Years off his career and 6 weeks in some bullshit rehab for the medicine that obviously helps with whatever he is dealing with.

                    He is obviously a criminal and a hooligan for not bowing down to his masters and Big Pharma and getting the legally prescribed bullshit pills that numb you to the point of not even feeling human, and not to mention forget any fucking sex life.

                    Fucking retarded.

                        You forgot to have him kneel and kiss the platinum pinkie rings of his NFL overlords.
                        No Pat McQuistan = No Super Bowl. It's that simple.

                              I actually have pretty high hopes for him now. He has had to overcome a lot. The road he just had to go down to get reinstated was long and I'm sure very tough. If he is that committed, I can't imagine him screwing it up again.

                                Yeah from my understanding he has been working his butt off. I guess we will see in preseason if any of it has paid off. I always worry about what kind of physical shape a guy will come back in after a layoff but I've only heard good reports to that fact about him so far. I know he doesn't have the "stats" but he has shown up as a pass rusher. Not all great plays by a DE show up in the stat line. I've at least seen the ability out of him to get after the QB. If he can hold up better against the run he could be a legit player.
