Why did Randy Gregory go to the Broncos?

Gregory’s choice to sign with the Broncos over the Cowboys was due to a contract dispute with Dallas. It wasn’t about how much the Cowboys were paying Gregory, though. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports that Gregory is getting the same five-year, $70 million deal with Denver that he would have gotten with Dallas.

Why was Gregory suspended?

Because of substance-abuse related issues with marijuana, Gregory had often tested positive, and was often suspended by the NFL including for all 16 games in the 2017 and 2019 seasons. In fact, there was a five-year skid from 2016-20 when he served suspensions every year.
