The Bears went into the offseason with a goal of upgrading their offensive options and head coach Matt Nagy gave a positive review of their work after the end of the draft on Saturday.
Chicago added help at wide receiver and tight end in free agency, drafted interior lineman James Daniels and wide receiver Anthony Miller in the second round and then added another wide receiver in the seventh round. Nagy said the new faces leave him happy with the pieces he will be working with in his first season on the job.
Gregory was banned by the league on Jan.6, 2017, for a minimum of one year due to multiple violations of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.
A 2015 second-round draft pick out of Nebraska, Gregory last played for Dallas in the 2016 season finale.
He’s being very diligent in preparing his information and preparing his application, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters Wednesday at Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine, Texas.
The name of the bunch is Moritz Böhringer, who has been allocated to the Bengals. He was a sixth-round pick of the Vikings in 2016, after a standout career with the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns of the German Football League. He spent the 2016 season on their practice squad.
Other players include German Football League fullback Christopher Ezeala (Ravens), former British American Football League defensive back Tigie Sankoh (Browns) and former English professional rugby player/tight end Christian Scotland-Williamson (Steelers). Tight end Alex Gray (Falcons), defensive end Alex Jenkins (Saints), linebacker Eric Nzeocha (Buccaneers), and defensive end Efe Obada (Panthers) return for another year as well.
They can’t be promoted to the active roster (such that they would), so it’s an extra body for coaches and a marketing opportunity for the league.
The Dolphins were trailblazers in that, by the way.
