The Dallas Cowboys have one of the worst defenses to ever play in the National Football League through six weeks of a season, yet some how, some way, they are in first place in the NFC East. How the Cowboys are atop their division is really more about the rest of it than them. Altogether the NFC East has five total wins and the Cowboys own 40% of them. Whether they end up being a squad that hosts a playoff game remains to be seen, there is a lot of football to be played between now and the end of the regular season.
Whatever football is played from now through early January the Cowboys will theoretically be playing it with an old face who is now back in action. We have reached Week 7 which means Randy Gregory is eligible to return and that officially happened on Tuesday.
Randy Gregory is officially back, two others were waived
On the same day that David Irving re-entered the NFL by way of the Las Vegas Raiders, the Dallas Cowboys got back another one of their former defensive lineman. It was reported on Tuesday that Randy Gregory is back with the team and that Saivion Smitha and Ventell Bryant have been waived.

This was more of a procedural thing than anything else for the Cowboys as we have all been anxiously awaiting Gregory’s return to the team. There have been people that were excited about Ventell Bryant in terms of the other side of this news, but Cedrick Wilson’s emergence as the established WR4 left little room for anyone else.
Hopefully Gregory can help this defense get after the quarterback or do really anything positive. Things have been bad on that side of the ball and they can use all of the help that they can get.
