Cowboys sign second-round pick Gregory


The Sports Xchange

The Dallas Cowboys signed second-round pick Randy Gregory on Wednesday.

Terms of the deal were not released by the team, but it is expected to be a four-year deal worth $3.8 million, including a signing bonus of $1,034,500.

Gregory, a pass rusher out of Nebraska, slipped to the 60th pick overall amid concerns about marijuana use — he failed a drug test at the Combine — and his mental health.

“I think a lot of people are getting tied up in the weed and think it’s just a weed problem. I don’t think it’s a weed problem,” Gregory said in an ESPN Radio interview after the Cowboys picked him. “I think it’s decision making. I think I’m immature. I’m definitely working on that.”

“I know I made a mistake,” Gregory added. “I know there is only so much I can say. Talk is cheap sometimes. I really want to show these guys what I can do and I am really serious about what I say. I gave that staff my word plenty of times, and I really feel like they believe me.”
