Jerry Jones “very skeptical” of report Randy Gregory failed drug test

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones indicated on Saturday evening that he didn’t believe the report that came out Saturday morning saying Randy Gregory has failed another drug test.

I would be very skeptical,” Jones said of the TMZ report, via the Star-Telegram.

Drug testing is handled at the league level, not at the team level, and it’s unclear how much information Jones has been given on Gregory’s situation. But Jones said the report’s claim that Gregory blew off NFL officials is incorrect, and that Gregory is working within the league’s substance abuse program.

“That’s just not right,” Jones said. “He is getting a lot of support. He is not void in any way. He’s got in my mind a better method of support than he had most of last year. I’m very comfortable with his support and we are trying to stay in communication with him.”

Gregory is suspended for the entire 2017 season, but Jones said the Cowboys remain supportive of Gregory and still hope he’ll play for them in the future.

    How is it “Americas’s Team” seems to sign, and standby, every miscreant out there?

    Good ole Jerrah, the poster child for the word delusional.

  3. whenwilliteverend says: Apr 29, 2017 9:27 PM

    I would be very skeptical of Jerry Jones’ assertion that one should be very skeptical of the report.

  4. eagleswin says: Apr 29, 2017 9:28 PM

    Randy Gregory has failed multiple drug tests to date and is currently under suspension for failing drug tests but Jerry is skeptical that he could’ve failed a drug test.

    I find it funny that the most dangerous thing about weed is getting caught with it what an arse backwards world we live in

    Jerry has finally gone completely senile. Time to put the old cowboy out to pasture where he can’t hurt himself or further destroy his football team.

  8. tonebones says: Apr 29, 2017 9:34 PM

    Jerry Jones is crazy like a fox. When you can steal Dak Prescott in the 4th round, you can make mistakes elsewhere. Jerry has a collection of rings, so he’s one of the last owners I’m concerned about. He’s a HOFer

  9. xballhawkx says: Apr 29, 2017 9:35 PM

    Gregory is a good kid, not a miscreant. He has a substance abuse problem which doesn’t make him a bad person. He is getting help which is all anyone can ask of him.

  10. navyvandal says: Apr 29, 2017 9:36 PM

    even if this was a “false” positive, you cannot avoid this kid’s Justin Blackmon tendencies. He needs serious help. I’ve never smoked pot or done a drug because of my biological father being a drug addict, but this was not his first time…this was THE SEVENTH. Enough is enough.

  11. manderson4150 says: Apr 29, 2017 9:37 PM

    Cowboy fans thank your lucky stars that Stephen Jones is mostly running things.

    Funny how everyone assumes that it’s pot.

    All of the Cowboys’ babysitters should count against their 53 man roster.

    How many of their losers have ‘mentors’, or “A support system”, or a “hugger”?

    I think that Dez actually has a babysitter and a monkey to keep him thinking straight.

    Lol, I hope you aren’t serious because you know that Jerrah publicly lamented not trading up to get Lynch in the first, right? Then was going to grab Cook until the Raiders went up and got him leaving Jerrah with his third choice… A choice he had so “much confidence” in that he signed QB Buttfumble himself to back up Romo. Yeah, “crazy like a fox”.. or a lucky loon.

    We’re talking about weed. Not like he punched women, sexually assaulted, or had guns like Aaron Hernandez.

    Don’t doubt Dr. Jones.

  19. immafubared says: Apr 29, 2017 10:53 PM

    U don’t know it’s weed. Could be worse. Based on the story it sounds like he failed to show, which Jerry would know about, but that is the same as failing the test. Greg probably called jerry with some lame excuse.

    Weed is an illegal drug in most states and it’s totally banned by the NFL. Period.
    You pothead defenders make me sick, just as the potheads in the 60’s did with all their hippy crap.
    I can’t stand people who smoke pot and are apologists for others who break the law by doing it.
    If I had my way, they’d make the crap so strong the first time potheads smoked it would be the last time.
    I am sick and tired of the drug infested culture we have in this country now. The pain that drug and alcohol abuse has caused to the families of those who do it is horrible. I know, because my son ruined his heart on drugs, and he started by abusing alcohol and smoking weed. But that wasn’t good enough. He needed a higher high, so he got into crack cocaine and it destroyed his heart to the point he needed a heart transplant.
    That’s why I hate it when people break the law with this crap, and all the apologists who say it’s a harmless drug. No, it isn’t. It can lead people into using stronger drugs. I don’t care what anyone says, because I’ve seen it for myself.

    Jerry should be more skeptical of Drew Pearson’s mental health. CTE took a toll it seems after watching his draft performance.

  22. itsnotforme says: Apr 29, 2017 11:02 PM

    The kid had issues long before he was drafted, and Dallas was stupid enough to ignore those issues. Now they’ve draft at least two more problems this year. Will they ever learn?

  24. davemishsr says: Apr 29, 2017 11:34 PM

    This kid has failed virtually every drug test that he has taken in the NFL. So Jerry Jones is skeptical why? At this point it would pretty much be a miracle for Gregory to pass a drug test.

  25. davemishsr says: Apr 29, 2017 11:39 PM

    TMZ is reporting that Gregory tested positive for marijuana.

  26. aballinhighgrass says: Apr 29, 2017 11:42 PM

    Jones looks stoned in the attached photo.

  27. pats777 says: Apr 30, 2017 12:39 AM

    And I’m very skeptical that Jerry actually passed a drug test.

  28. gmen5280 says: Apr 30, 2017 1:41 AM

    The only way Jerry would know for sure Gregory didn’t fail another drug test. Is if Jones had Randy locked up in his basement 24/7.

  29. sychosam28 says: Apr 30, 2017 6:38 AM

    I have no problem with marijuana but if the NFL has a rule saying its not suppose to be used. As a player don’t use it or risk being suspended. Just follow the rules while playing and smoke as much as you want when your done. Everyone makes sacrafices, a few years without weed won’t kill you.

  30. kissbillsrings says: Apr 30, 2017 7:56 AM

    Weed should be both legalized & a non banned substance for players to use as a pain killer as an alternative to the medications currently allowed & being used now…..
    I really don’t understand how this is such an issue in this day & age….
    The NFL should NOT test for this substance & if they feel it’s bad & want to take a stance against its use, then feel free to do educational programs against it if that makes them FEEL better….
    That being said, if ANY player gets arrested or does something that reflects badly toward themselves, others or the league itself, they should be tested for it just like they would be for alcohol & punished accordingly for their misconduct & poor judgement …
    Weed is NOT a PED….

    If a study came out and stated that 99% of cocaine users had tried marijuana before they started using cocaine, everyone would jump to the conclusion that marijuana was the gateway that led them to their cocaine addiction.

    But.. I would bet that the same 99% had tried peanut butter, or chocolate milk, or bread, or cereal prior to their cocaine usage as well.

    Everybody knows that alcohol is the real “gateway” drug that is “tied-to” almost every addiction out there.

    It’s just that nobody wants to admit it.

  33. mikespillane337 says: Apr 30, 2017 8:55 AM

    Drew Pearson called philly out for booing…no rings….hush boy.Plus he thanked them.Not a cowboys fan…hate them actually…but until you become what others already are…hush and ask permission before you speak…..HUSH.

  34. mikespillane337 says: Apr 30, 2017 9:09 AM

    It’s even funnier to assume it wasn’t pot unless you are saying that it wasn’t pot because pot was the drug that he was using when he failed his first test unless I can assume that you are saying that pot led to a stronger drug but that goes against potheads saying it doesnt im assuming that by not using any punctuation that you understand because pot enhances your senses and you can understand

    Maybe Stephen didn’t clean Jerry’s glasses well enough before he read the report.

  37. chesterburnett111 says: Apr 30, 2017 10:54 AM

    If Aaron Hernandez got out on appeal Jerry woulda signed him. Jerry doesn’t give a crap about integrity or legal issues. The funny thing is that he doesn’t give a crap about public reaction unless it’s over the top negative.

  38. BigBagOfMoney says: Apr 30, 2017 11:01 AM

    Jones does do a good job of standing up for players that have gotten themselves in trouble. It shows that not amount of training can outstrip sheer experience.

    A lot of these guys that get lost this way grew up in troubled environments. Issues with parenting whether badly done or one or both absent often contribute. But its easier to blame the substances themselves than the invididual using or their background so a lot of people put their focus there.

  40. mrba4775 says: Apr 30, 2017 11:10 AM

    Don’t be surprised that Gregory is recovering from his issues and Jerry is right. Gregory will returned to the NFL on a mission of redemption in 2018.

  41. hawk3a1 says: Apr 30, 2017 11:54 AM

    funny how this guy gets re-instated for failing drug test upon drug test, but Aldon Smith has not failed anything, and has not been found guilty of anything. He has complied with the terms of his supposedly 1 year suspension, yet is still not re-instated. Even worse he was suspended for a DUI, vandalisim, and Hit and Run, which the DA had to drop because they were bogus charges.

    Free Aldon! In the meantime Roger stay on your dictator’s throne sipping on your martini’s telling us all how bad marijuana is, and reinstate guys for teams that you are friends of the owners with. Are you having dinner over at Jerry or Robert house tonight?

  44. geecrizz says: Apr 30, 2017 12:42 PM

    Face it Jerry, you wasted a high pick on this guy. If he’s already spent the entire beginning of his football career suspended due to drug use and he just came up dirty again, he’s a lost cause. These are the breaks for picking guys with issues.

  45. usa98j30t4 says: Apr 30, 2017 6:51 PM

    Of course he’s skeptical. He still thinks OJ is innocent.

    Jerry, stop doubling down on Stupid.

    I know you treat your players well. I like that about you. But you need to get tough with this kid and tell him what he needs to do to straighten his life out.
