Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory is trying to return to the NFL.

According to espn.com, Gregory is expected to meet with NFL officials this week in New York, with commissioner Roger Goodell potentially in the audience, in his bid to be reinstated after a year-long suspension for multiple substance-abuse violations.

Gregory, a second-round selection out of Nebraska in the 2015 NFL Draft, has only played two games for the Cowboys due to drug-related suspensions. He has nine tackles and a sack in those games.

Despite Gregory’s continued off-the-field issues, Dallas has stood by its former high draft pick.

Gregory was known as an electric pass rusher coming out of college after accumulating 17.5 sacks in just two seasons. Now 25 years old, Gregory may only get one more chance to stick in the league.
