IRVING, Texas — Randy Gregory glanced toward Dez Bryant’s locker several times, the new Dallas defensive end noting he didn't think it was an accident his neighbor was an All-Pro receiver whose career started with off-the-field issues.
The Cowboys drafted Gregory despite a failed drug test and concerns about his maturity after making one of the most notable moves in free agency with pass rusher Greg Hardy despite his role in a domestic violence case.
Add the unique signing of La’el Collins after his draft was ruined by a police investigation that so far hasn’t turned up any involvement by the former LSU offensive lineman in the shooting death of a woman he knew. Dallas has an interesting locker room mix for coach Jason Garrett coming off an NFC East championship.
“I think the main thing is trying to keep all the baggage outside the locker room,” Gregory said Friday after his first workout in the rookie minicamp opener. “I think that's what Dez has done. I think that’s what guys in my position have done that’s been in the past, and that's what I'm going to do.”
