The week began with uncertainty about whether the Cowboys would retain defensive ends Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence for the 2022 season.

It is expected to end with both players still in the fold. Lawrence reached agreement on a new deal with the team on Monday and Tuesday brings multiple reports that Gregory is re-signing with the Cowboys ahead of free agency.

Reports indicate that it is a five-year, $70 million deal for Gregory that includes $28 million in guaranteed money.

Gregory, who is No. 19 on PFT’s list of the top free agents, played in 12 regular season games and one playoff game for the Cowboys last season. He finished the year with 19 tackles, six sacks, an interception, three forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. The 2015 second-round pick has served multiple lengthy suspensions since entering the league and has 16.5 career sacks.

UPDATE 12:19 p.m. ET: The Cowboys announced that Gregory had agreed to re-sign with the team, but Gregory apparently changed his mind a short time later and is now set to sign a five-year deal with the Broncos instead.

  1. Very dicey resigning him for this amount of money. He has a long history of suspensions and that was when he was on “prove it” contracts.
    That being said if his head is finally right this is a steal for Dallas. He was a monster last year.

  2. I don’t hate it. Gregory is a playmaker, and he’s shown signs of maturity this past year or so.

  3. good news for the NFC east. More wasted Cowboys money. But they don’t have much of a choice after giving Dak a stupid contract.

  4. That’s a lot of guaranteed money for only 16.5 career sacks and many lengthy suspensions. Although,Jerry Jones issueing Damarcus Ware’s #94 jersey to Randy Gregory was far more egregious.

  5. He’ll celebrate by doing something which will get him suspended for the year.

  6. I wish I could screw up so, so many times and then make $70,000,000 in 5 years. Dude is crazy privileged.

  7. That’s loyalty right there. His NFL career should’ve been over a long time ago but Dallas stuck with him through the rough with all the league fines and suspensions. With the league off his back, he really took shape into dominant form. Very great news for Dallas. Gregory did us a solid

  8. For him to be able to fight thru weed addiction is an achievement. And by the way, what’s so morally unacceptable to try to fight your inner pain this way, compared to criminal behavior of all sorts we have seen in this league.
