Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is still a believer in Randy Gregory as he hopes the defensive end will have a big 2021 season. Gregory, who was selected in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft, has only appeared in 38 games over six seasons.
Throughout his career, Gregory has had problems with the league’s substance-abuse policy and that caused him to miss more games than he has played. “Randy, I’ve been really impressed by the way he has stayed the course with legitimate life challenges,” Jones said, per Pro Football Talk.
“He addresses them exemplarily. He has to fight the kinds of things that make those challenges for people. He has to fight that. I’m seeing him take the logic and the mentality of using what he’s been through there, and I’m seeing him bring it over to his game and bring it over to being the professional he potentially might have the chance to be”.
Jones suggests Gregory is in great shape
“He’s got a lot of tread left on his tire. He really hasn’t, if you think about it, had a lot of wear and tear relative to as many years as he’s now been with the Cowboys,” Jones said.
Elsewhere, Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Mike Daniels called Joe Burrow "baby Aaron Rodgers." “You know what I say about Joe Burrow, man — that’s like baby Aaron,” Daniels said during a Thursday interview on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football.
In the 2020 draft, the Bengals used their No. 1 pick to select Burrow. Unfortunately, Burrow's season prematurely finished as he suffered a torn ACL. “You don’t see many rookies step into a locker room and you would think the guy is a four-year vet if you didn’t know who he was,” Daniels said.
“And to have that at the quarterback position, that means he has the right type of savvy, the right type of poise that you only see from guys like Aaron. And I’ve been saying it since I got there, I see a lot of similarities between the two and I’m just excited to be able to be part of it, man.
“He’s got a lot to him. He’s got a lot of upside. He’s only going to get better. And you talk to ‘Who Dey’ nation, they’re gonna let you know — Joe Burrow is the savior, man. He really is to this organization”.
