Randy Gregory flips on Dallas Cowboys after agreeing to contract, to join Denver Broncos instead

The Dallas Cowboys announced on the team's social media accounts Tuesday morning that Gregory had agreed to a deal to return to the team, but multiple Broncos sources later confirmed that he instead is joining Denver.

About Gregory contract

 The clause Gregory objected to -- voiding his contract if fined/suspended for any drug offense or violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy -- was not included in his previous Cowboys contract and also wasn't mentioned in Monday's contract talks, which lasted until midnight, a source told Werder.

Broncos and Gregory

The Broncos had done extensive due diligence on Gregory's past suspensions before free agency opened, and the team's personnel department had graded Gregory as one of the top edge rushers available. The team had negotiated throughout Monday with Gregory's representatives in hopes of a deal.

Gregory joins Bradley Chubb

Gregory, 29, joins Bradley Chubb as the starting outside linebackers in the Broncos' 3-4 defense. The Broncos are hopeful that Gregory can continue his career resurgence.

Gregory became one of the Cowboys' best pass-rushers

After missing two full seasons and 14 games in another because of suspensions for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy, Gregory became one of the Cowboys' best pass-rushers and was added to the players' leadership council by head coach Mike McCarthy in 2021.
