Things move fast in the NFL. Very quickly.

Tuesday morning at 10:48 a.m. ET, we published a post here on Blogging The Boys announcing the reported return of Randy Gregory to the Dallas Cowboys. This was reported both locally and nationally and was news that many Cowboys fans were thrilled to hear.


Less than 90 minutes later, a flurry of reports from the Denver area and nationally began to come out that Randy Gregory has in fact turned around and is heading to the Denver Broncos where he was connected before the “news of his time in Dallas. Yes. Really.

News of Gregory staying with the Cowboys was reported everywhere. The mothership tweeted it itself and had to delete it, but not before the internet made sure it existed forever.

It’s worth mentioning that we’re still only in the legal tampering part of free agency, so Gregory could theoretically change his mind (again), but that seems unlikely at this point.

As for how it happened, NFL Network reported that the Cowboys insisted on language in his contract that he didn’t like. It remains to be seen exactly what it was.

Randy’s contract in Denver is the same one he was supposed to sign with the Cowboys.
