Now that Dallas Cowboys defensive end Aldon Smith's has been reinstated by the National Football League from an indefinite suspension, the big question is when Randy Gregory will be given the green light to return to the team as well?

"I'm grateful. I'm really grateful", Smith said, via TMZ. That event has obviously come and gone, and while Smith may have been reinstated by the league, it sounds like Gregory's case is taking longer to settle. "That just means I always work hard".

In November 2018, Smith pleaded no contest to charges of false imprisonment and violating a court order after he originally faced misdemeanour charges of domestic violence, assault with force likely to produce bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism stemming from an alleged domestic-violence incident. As part of a plea deal with San Francisco prosecutors, he was sentenced to 90 days in jail and three years of probation, and he was ordered to attend domestic violence counseling and perform community service. He served the sentence in an inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center. "I just want my story to spread and help out others ..." I want people to see my story and see it and be able to be like, 'Hey man, he can do it, he's done it'.

Smith had 47.5 sacks in 59 games before his suspension.

Now 30, Smith told TMZ, "I still feel young". I still feel great when I go to the gym. "So, if anything, I'm looking forward to what I'm going to be able to do out there".

The Cowboys, known under owner/general manager Jerry Jones to take chances on players with character concerns, gave Smith a contract last month with no guaranteed money but loaded with incentives that could garner him up to $4 million.

Apart from the contract, another possible lure for Smith to sign with Dallas may have been the presence of defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, who was on the 49ers' staff when Smith was at his most productive.
