Report: Cowboys DE Randy Gregory Will Apply for Reinstatement to NFL After Year-Long Suspension More Randy Gregory will apply to be reinstated into the NFL Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports. Gregory was suspended all of last season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. It was his third suspension for substance abuse violation since being drafted by the Cowboys in the second round in 2015 out of Nebraska. Gregory, a defensive end who had 17.5 sacks in 24 games with the Cornhuskers, has played in just 14 games in the NFL.
He played in 12 in 2015 and just two in 2016. In those 14 contests, Gregory has just one sack. Rapoport also reports that Gregory has spent more than six months in drug and alcohol rehabilitation along with counseling. If his reinstatement is approved, he will be eligible to return in 60 days, which would have him coming back around the start of training camp.
It’s the (conference) finals, he said. There’s four teams here for a reason. Obviously these four teams have done great things all year. You can’t make the same mental mistakes like you’re in a regular season.
He originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Virginia in 2013, signing with the Jaguars. Reynolds spent more than two seasons in Jacksonville before the Bears signed him off the Jaguars’ practice squad in 2015.
Reynolds has played in 68 career games with seven starts.
Apparently, eight is the magic number for Rutgers when it comes to academic achievement.
One year after eight Rutgers teams were cited by the NCAA for being among the top 10 percent nationally in multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR), Rutgers achieved that same record-total Wednesday when the college athletics governing body released its list of teams recognized for academic excellence after scoring in the top 10 percent of their sports in the most recent Academic Progress Rate (APR).
