The Dallas Cowboys’ 2022 offseason has gotten off to a painful start.
Dallas traded wide receiver Amari Cooper to the Browns and lost pass rusher Randy Gregory to the Broncos after he reneged on a deal that had in place. It appears he had a reason to do so as he stated in a since deleted tweet ripping the Cowboys owner.
“Nope, your owners acted in bad faith all free agency. They’ve been awfully quiet lately huh? Wonder why lol Can’t wait for you guys to ask them the same questions!”
After some backlash, he responded on Twitter, even calling the Cowboys out for having a toxic fan base.
“Nah that’s your toxic fan base that believe I owe them and their team something lol”
After Randy Gregory reneged on his prior agreement with the Cowboys on Tuesday to sign a more lucrative long-term deal with the Denver Broncos, Jones was reportedly left “livid” by the last-minute change that caused the talented defensive end to continue his career elsewhere.
Gregory initially agreed to a five-year, $70 million deal with Dallas on Monday, but the team went back on that deal Tuesday before Gregory put pen to paper, reportedly approaching he and his representation with a new offer that contained parameters absent from their pact less than 24 hours earlier.
That was the straw that broke the camel’s back and Gregory headed out.
The Cowboys defense in 2021 made huge strides to turn themselves around, but losing a guy like Gregory is going to have them take several steps back.
