Randy Gregory is grateful for another chance in the NFL.

The Cowboys defensive end was reinstated by the league Tuesday after he was suspended all of last season because of multiple drug-related offenses.

“It is (my final chance) and if it’s not I’m definitely treating it like it is,” Gregory told ESPN. “I feel like a lot of other organizations wouldn’t have stuck around for this long. I think part of it is just the faith in what I can do on the field, but they also saw that I was a struggling kid that was trying to get himself back on the right path

“…I’m a totally different person than I was coming into the league. In some ways better. I think Jerry (Jones) and the whole organization, they understood the situation fully and there was going to be some setbacks. Hopefully this is the last one as far as all that.”

Gregory has barely played in the NFL. He has missed 30 out of 48 games due to suspension since he was drafted in 2015.

In total, Gregory has been suspended three times while in the NFL.
