Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed that suspended defensive end Randy Gregoryis preparing to apply to the NFL for reinstatement.

And Jones said the Cowboys are helping him in the process.

Gregory missed the entire 2017 season after being suspended for one year for repeated violations of the NFL’s Policy for Substances of Abuse.

Gregory became eligible for reinstatement, but has yet to officially apply.

He is an NFL-caliber player with one hand, and he is as charismatic as any athlete you’ll find. He is the most intriguing player in this year’s draft, and you can bet he will be a top jersey seller almost immediately after some team picks him. Just ask Hughes, who ran through coverage drills with Griffin on Thursday. Hughes dropped the first ball thrown his way, which he figured was nerves, and then he watched Griffin pick off a throw easily, with one hand and one arm swallowing the ball. Hughes found himself inspired, and started catching everything in sight.

Ever since the moment the season ended, Dez Bryant’s time in Dallas looked like it was coming to an end. What was already a murky future became even more muddled when the Cowboys signed Bryant’s possible replacement, Allen Hurns.

The rumors constantly have been flying about regarding when the former Pro Bowler will be released, and now, we finally have our timetable.

The Cowboys reportedly plan to release their star wideout following the NFL draft.

You don’t have to say it’s over until it’s over, but Bryant’s party in Dallas is certainly winding down.

The big issue with Bryant is that he simply isn’t the top wide receiver he’s paid to be. He hasn’t broken 70 catches, 1,000 yards, or 10 touchdowns in three years despite being paid like a top-10 receiver.
