FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Randy Gregory is preparing to apply for reinstatement to the NFL and Jones is hopeful the defensive end can return to the field in 2018.

Suspended Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory is working through the process required for reinstatement by the NFL and the paperwork could be filed as early as next week, Pro Football Talk reported, citing unidentified sources.

If Gregory is reinstated and can stay out of off-field trouble, he could bring tantalizing top-tier talent to the Cowboys pass rush.
