Is There Optimism on a Cowboys Comeback for Reinstatement-Minded Randy Gregory?

FRISCO (105.3 The Fan) - On July 11, 2019, we broke the detailed story of Randy Gregory's NFL petition-for-reinstatement plan. The paperwork was to be submitted four days later, on July 15. Ten days later, we wrote a second story quoting two members of the suspended Dallas Cowboys player's legal team, both of whom spoke with optimism about the process. 

Then months passed. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was required to issue a judgment within 60 days of a player's submission - and that judgment never came

So ... what happened? And what's happening now? 

In my many stories on and my many conversations with Gregory, the gifted former second-round pick who struggles with issues that include marijuana use, I've stressed that this really needs to be about Gregory the person rather than Gregory the football player. 

We're left to conclude that Gregory stumbled then ... but we were told earlier this week (and mentioned on 105.3 The Fan) that we're hearing he's ready to take another shot at the NFL now. 

"I'm working very hard to get to a place where I can be in control,'' Gregory told me then. "It will be a happier place.''
