Dallas Cowboys Vice President and COO Stephen Jones has spoken this weekend of his disappointment in Randy Gregory.


Responding to last week's news that the defensive end would miss the first four games of the 2016 NFL season after violating the league's substance-abuse policy, Jones didn't seem willing to accept any excuses.

"“This is a disappointment,” he said on Sunday, via the Fort-Worth Star Telegram's Charean Williams.

The Cowboys took a chance on Gregory when they drafted him in the second round of the 2015 draft just a few months after he had failed a drugs test at the Scouting Combine.

After appearing to have kept out of trouble during his rookie season, it looked like that gamble may have paid off for a talent who was, at one time, seen as a top-10 pick out of Nebraska.

Now, though, the red flags surrounding Gregory will only intensify as his issues off the field dominate the headlines once again.

According to CBS Sports, the four-game ban likely stems from no less than three failed tests during 2015. As a result, they note that another positive test would lead to a 10-game ban, and a fifth would mean a 12-month suspension.

The pressure really is on for Gregory to prove to Dallas that he can tow the line moving forward. Judging by Jones' comments, he isn't going to get much sympathy from the Cowboys if he can't.
