Former Dallas Cowboys second-round pick Randy Gregory missed the entire 2017 and most of the 2016 season after being banned from the league for failing multiple drug tests.
Gregory, 25, is looking to make a comeback, and he is planning to apply for reinstatement according to Cowboys Wire. Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones said the team is still unable to have contact with Gregory, but he said it would be a “big deal” if Gregory could return to the team.
Gregory has only recorded one sack in his career, but the former Nebraska standout does have the potential to provide a huge boost to the Dallas pass rush.
The Cowboys struggled on the defensive line last season, and adding another pass rusher with Gregory’s talent would help tremendously.
Gregory was a first round talent coming out of college, but off-the-field concerns led to him being taken with the 60th overall pick in 2015.
