“I mean, it’s bigger than I think some of us think,” he said. “It’s just important for me to go out there, hand over my heart, represent our country and just be thankful and not take anything I’ve been given and my freedom for granted.” – Dak Prescott

 

Wow!  What a champ!

Who cares, the guy is done.  Who wants him?  No one.  He is damaged goods.  Too many injuries to count so it is risky for anyone to sign him.  

Warning for NFL Rookies

Another sad story about a young NFL player

By JUAN ROQUE   JAN. 5, 2017

The NFL suspended troubled Dallas Cowboys Defensive End Randy Gregory today for a minimum of one year. This recent suspension comes after he sat out 10 games in 2016 for the same reason after serving a 4 game suspension in 2015. Gregory, like troubled Cleveland WR Josh Gordon, has now wasted nearly a full season of NFL experience (and pay) for his bullshit off the field.

Gregory has had a history of problems with Marijuana since he entered the NFL after starring at Nebraska. Considered a high end prospect with a First Round grade on many lists he started his pro career off in the worst of ways; he failed a drug test at the Combine. That failed test assassinated his draft stock and he was drafted 60th Overall in the Second Round by the Cowboys.

The uber talented player with endless potential seems to have an issue with prioritizing his life. He took to the wrong veteran as a rookie hanging with accused and acquitted NFL outcast Greg Hardy and hasn’t done much since arriving in Dallas. What makes this situation all the more tragic is not many have his combination of size, strength and speed. He’s still young and can have a future in football but like Josh Gordon his time is running out. If he doesn’t make changes in his life Gregory will be another cautionary tale told to Rookies about what not to do when becoming a pro.

NFL denies Cowboys’ request to wear decal honoring fallen Dallas officers

The NFL denied the Dallas Cowboys’ request to wear a decal on their helmets during the season that would have paid tribute to the five police officers killed last month in an ambush.

Dallas Cowboys and the police

The team had been wearing a decal with the words “Arm in Arm” since the first day of training camp this summer. Dallas police Chief David Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings paid the team a visit on that day, according to Fox 4 News.


Some Tweets on the topic:

 

 


The NFL’s strict rules on uniforms forced the league to deny the Cowboys’ request to wear the decal for the upcoming season.

Dallas police said it appreciated the Cowboys’ support.

“Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas is what matters most, and we know that support will continue for the immediate and long term future,” the department said in a statement.

Does the NFL care about the police?

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and tight end Jason Witten, who created the decal, said they were disappointed with the league’s decision but said they believed the stickers already served its purpose.

The Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation told TMZ they were “extremely upset” over the NFL’s decision.

“The NFL had an opportunity to be leaders and advocates for change in law enforcement,” Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, president of the foundation, told the website. “”These are our friends and our loved ones … it hurts to not have the NFL fully support us.”

While I agree it appears there is a double standard coming from the NFL towards the Cowboys, this may just be a uniform issue.  The league does have a strict dress code.  Fines are issued every week for players violating the dress code.  But…the league doesn’t have an issue with the pink and camo for other causes.  It would be nice if they could let the boys in blue get some support with all the bull-fertilizer they have been through these past few years.

Dallas will kick-off its preseason schedule against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday.
