Cowboys News: Explaining the conditional reinstatement of Randy Gregory

NFL reinstates Cowboys DE Randy Gregory from yearlong suspension - Todd Archer, ESPN

After all the wait, news finally broke on Randy Gregory’s application for reinstatement to the NFL and it was good news for the defensive end and the Cowboys.

The NFL reinstated Gregory on a conditional basis on Tuesday, allowing him to be at camp and participate in meetings, conditioning work and similar activities, but he has not been cleared to practice or play in games.

Once arrangements regarding Gregory’s clinical resources in Dallas are confirmed and he continues to abide by the substance-abuse policy, then he will be fully cleared to return.


Gregory was reinstated on a "conditional basis," allowed to rejoin the team at training camp next week for practices, meetings and conditioning. Once Gregory and his team clarify arrangements for his clinical resources in Dallas, he'll be clear to join the team there as well.

Gregory was ecstatic at the decision, he said in a phone call on Tuesday, though not surprised after doing what the league has asked before his petition.

"I'm very excited," Gregory told SportsDay. "Thanks to the ones who supported me and stood by me. It's a lot more to the story than it seems and it took me a lot to get to this point.

"Now I'm ready to make some plays."
