This week is off to a hot start what with Zack Martin and the Cowboys finalizing a long-term extension for the best guard in football. If possible, things might be going even better than that.
The word might is an important one as we’re talking about defensive end Randy Gregory. The technically fourth-year defensive lineman (isn’t that insane?) has been battling suspension issues for basically the entire Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott era, and he’s looking to re-join the Cowboys.
Randy applied for reinstatement earlier this offseason, and it seems that we are advancing (at least in a logistical sense) along in that process. Gregory tweeted late Monday night that he was in New York, and ESPN’s Todd Archer corroborated that he was there for NFL business with a follow up.

Gregory's reinstatement efforts are being led by attorney Daniel Moskowitz, who successfully led Daryl Washington's reinstatement last summer. There was a time where Washington was considered a greater long shot than Gregory ever was.
This is all part of the process if Randy Gregory is ever to return to the NFL. We’re simply checking things off of a “to do” list at this point. We’ll keep you updated here at BTB as this story continues to evolve throughout the week.
