Suspended Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory has suggested in a social media post that he is being treated unfairly by the NFL as he is doing everything he can to get reinstated but the league isn't responding to his plea.
Per ESPN's sources, Gregory applied for reinstatement in March and last month ESPN reported that his request wasn't denied but he wasn't cleared to return either. Gregory, who was selected by the Cowboys in the 2015 NFL draft, is on an indefinite suspension for multiple violations of the league's substance-abuse policy dating to his rookie year in 2015.
"I really miss playing football and being a player in the NFL," Gregory wrote. "I'm doing everything that is asked of me and I'm in great shape physically, mentally and emotionally but I'm being held back from furthering my career because of Covid and testing.
I've been ready to play and test for months but still have gotten little to no help to resolve my reinstatement. I'm asking more questions than I'm getting answered. It's amazing that the powers that can keep passing the buck and also use this pandemic as a way to prevent me from joining my team.
Telling me to just sit and wait in limbo over things I can't control, all the while doing everything right off the field is unfair and flat out wrong!!!"
Stefon Diggs happy to be a Buffalo Bill
Diggs appeared to be unhappy with the Minnesota Viking for quite some time and this offseason he was traded to the Buffalo Bills.
"As far as my past with Minnesota, I never actually said anything," Diggs said, as quoted on ESPN. "But, to this new situation, I'm excited. There is no right or wrong or problems to be fixed from my old situation.
I have a lot of respect for the Minnesota Vikings. At that time, a trade happened -- you've kind of got to look at it for what it is. But I never really was vocal about what I did or didn't like (in Minnesota)."
Diggs then further insisted that he's not a vocal complaint: "I never really was too vocal about it (wanting to get out of Minnesota). It's time for a new beginning' was enough said. I am super excited for my new situation.
This is also a great organization built on a lot of hardworking guys. A lot of guys that really grinded to get to where they're at."
