[UPDATE]: It turns out that Randy Gregory has changed his mind and decided to sign with the Denver Broncos. You can read that story here.

The ink may not be totally dry on the contract, but it appears the Dallas Cowboys have retained pass rusher Randy Gregory. Multiple outlets are reporting that a framework for a deal is in place and that Gregory will remain a Cowboy.

Yesterday the Cowboys got a new deal done with pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence that will keep him in Dallas for a couple more years at the minimum, and this deal looks like it will do the same with the $28 million in guarantees. The Cowboys defense was a big reason for their 12-5 season and NFC East crown, and Gregory was a big part of that as he started to capitalize on all the potential he has shown since his college days.

He appears to be past his days of suspensions and off-the-field issues, and now the Cowboys are hoping all that patience with him will pay off in a big way.
