It had been some time since we had heard of any movement in Gregory's potential reinstatement. Back in May, it was reported that he was "working through the process” of getting back into the NFL. That news came after Gregory filed a petition to get back into the league in March.
It's unknown why the Cowboys have had a change of heart on the matter, as they had faith that Gregory could potentially make his way back.
In Fish's many stories on and in his many conversations with Gregory, the gifted former second-round pick who struggles with issues that include marijuana use, he's stressed that this really needs to be about Gregory the person rather than Gregory the football player.
We believed Gregory was ready to take another shot at the NFL but it appears his situation has hit another snag.
The 27-year-old hasn't appeared in a game with the Cowboys since he was suspended indefinitely in week 17 of 2018.
