The #Cowboys are expected to sign their own pass-rusher Randy Gregory to a deal around $13M per year, source said. The deal isn’t done yet. But it is headed that way.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 15, 2022
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.
