The defensive end failed his first NFL drug test at the combine before he even had a chance to be drafted. Previously thought to be a top overall pick, Gregory ended up dropping to the second round, finally getting snatched up by the Cowboys in the 60th spot. The test revealed marijuana Gregory’s system.
As news broke of Gregory’s latest violation of the NFL substance abuse policy, reports also surfaced that the player was checking into a rehabilitation facility.
