The Dallas Cowboys front office reacted with displeasure to the news that second-year defensive end Randy Gregory will face a four-game suspension next season, stating that he needs to correct his behavior in an announcement Sunday. 

“This is a disappointment,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said in the statement. “We have been clear with Randy about what his responsibilities are and what is expected of him. This is something that he is going to have to work through and correct.”

Gregory has dealt with issues of substance abuse since his college days, failing a drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine after leaving Nebraska. 

According to the Cowboys’ website, Gregory failed three drug tests throughout the course of the 2015 season.
