The suspension was triggered by Gregory violating the league’s substance abuse policy and the terms of his conditional reinstatement. It’s Gregory’s fourth suspension since being selected in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Gregory was cleared and reinstated in July 2018 after he sat out the entire 2017 season. He missed a total of 14 games in 2016 due to two separate suspensions related to violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
Gregory, 26, was entering the final year of his rookie contract. He’s been suspended 30 games and played in 28.
Gregory played his first full season last season, recording six sacks and 25 tackles.
