Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk reports that Cowboys DE Randy Gregory and his representation are finishing the paperwork for reinstatement from suspension and are hopeful of filing with the NFL next week.
Last month, Bobby Belt also reported that there’sreal momentum building for Gregory and he’s expected to apply for reinstatement following the NFL Draft.
Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones at the Combine that they plan to move forward as if Gregory wouldn’t be with the team for the upcoming season, but Moore seems to think they would find a place or him if he’s reinstated by the NFL.
He’s simply the best example I know of, of what you want a football player and a person to be on and off the field. The number of times I told young players, veteran players, every player, ‘Watch No. 8Do it like he does it,’ it was incredible, said the Dallas coach. There’s nobody I respect more as a person, as a football player than Jason Witten. I can’t imagine ever respecting someone more as a football player and as a person than Jason Witten.
Finally, former quarterback Tony Romo weighed in with a letter on social media. It read in part: It’s hard to describe how special Jason Witten is. Sometimes in life you are lucky to come across someone that will change your life.Not only was Jason the most talented, humble and hardest-working individual on our football team, but he was one of the most genuine, good-hearted people you could ever meet.
Several teams, including the Jets, already have completed rookie mincamp, while others like the Giants and Eagles begin Friday, and dozens of 2018 NFL draft picks remain unsigned.
For instance, third-round pick Lorenzo Carter out of Georgia is the only one of the Giants’ six rookies known to have signed, as reported by the Daily News.
Imagine if Giants drafted these NFL stars within arm’s reach instead
Again, why risk serious injury and a potentially altered career path without securing your guaranteed money, which can be tens of millions for a first-round pick or five figures for a seventh-round pick?
It’s called the rookie participation agreement, and it essentially assures a draft pick injured during minicamps, offseason workouts or the rookie development program will receive the same contract he would have if healthy, one longtime NFLPA-certified agent explained to NJ Advance Media.
