Sliding in for Quinn
The reason he is leaving is that he had such a good season that now the Cowboys can’t afford to keep him. Unless he takes a massive pay cut, he is likely suiting up for his fourth NFL franchise.
With that in mind, Gregory would naturally slide in on the other side of star defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence. Gregory played well in his limited role in the past and can continue this moving forward.
It was the 2018 season that was the latest season that Gregory played with the Cowboys. He played in 14 games and only had one start. His snaps came out to only 45 percent.
In that short period, he did manage to have a good impact. Gregory racked up 6.0 sacks, 25 tackles, and two forced fumbles. He also had a total of 25 quarterback pressures.
That’s a very good performance for someone with a limited role. While I’m sure the oft suspended lineman wouldn’t be handed the role on a silver platter, he should be given a good opportunity.
If the opportunity arises, he should run away with it. The only concern with his play would be his penalties. In 2018 with that limited role, he committed 10 penalties.
If he works on limiting penalties, he will be a great asset to have on the field. He is a hard-working lineman that has a fire burning inside. He would be a great option to slide in place for Quinn.
