The NFL’s new year officially begins at 4 p.m. EST tomorrow, but the free company is up and running with more big moves, deals, and releases being confirmed. When you woke up this morning, you may have heard that the Dallas Cowboys have retained the services of defender Randy Gregory, agreeing to a long-term extension. Well, just hours later, the news broke that Gregory flip script about Jerry Jones and decided to bring his talent to Mile High City Denver.
Jones is an owner who loves to take care of the players he has drafted and re-signing them is a great thing. He likes to keep his boys in the Cowboy family, so Gregory’s last-minute switch to this was hurt. And it’s not like the deal he accepted from the Broncos wasn’t much different from what the Cowboys offered. It’s a five-year, $70 million contract with $28 million guaranteed. And most of that guarantee will come during the first two years of the contract.
The Buddha must have followed this story so it’s very interesting. The Cowboys were behind Gregory in all problem with drugs and several suspensions since he was enlisted in 2015. I’m not saying he necessarily owes them anything because the NFL and pro football are a business, but that’s it. is the way it goes down. Gregory is said to be ready to stay in Big D, then of course, we know what happened from there. Free agency is looking like the wild Wild West here right now.
Obviously, some kind of “terms of conduct“Had been included in the agreement, which led to Gregory deciding to leave Dallas. Dem ‘Boys just lost a powerful fast runner. And those are very coveted in today’s NFL fun. Losing Gregory will likely mean a change in free agency and draft strategy for Dallas. Gregory scored six dismissals in 12 games last season. Now the Cowboys need to replace his production and presence on the roster.
We’ll see how Jerry bounces back from this because the Cowboys took a big ‘L’ here. Whether or not that conduct clause is a straw breaking a camel’s back, Jones must now go buy a player in line across from DeMarcus Lawrence on the D-Line. Luckily for Jones, this happens at the beginning sign free agent period, so some nice nice pick still playing for Dallas. Chandler Jones is out there, Von Miller is still available even though he Tweet about Denver (and they just added Gregory), and even Jadeveon Clowney remains an option for the Cowboys. Hopefully Jerry and the Cowboys won’t get in trouble in the next routine handling.
