Dallas Cowboys rookie defensive end Randy Gregory is ready for his first taste of NFL action, and he won’t have to wait much longer.
The Cowboys’ much-talked about second round pick out of Nebraska, Gregory will likely see a fair amount of action in Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Chargers in San Diego. The feeling is likely shared by most all of the Cowboys, but it’s a little different for the rookies.
“I’m ready to show what I can do on the field,” Gregory said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I’m ready to obviously hit somebody else besides my teammates and show the plays we’re learning. Hopefully I can go out there and not make any mental errors and get off the ball.
“It’ll be kind of cool playing against another team and being in front of some of the guys who you’ve looked up to for so long and now I’m playing on the same field as them.”
