    At the 2015 NFL Draft last week, teams were ostensibly scared away from Randy Gregory by his failed drug test for marijuana at the NFL Combine, but Gregory insists he doesn’t have a weed problem. A maturity problem, sure, and he’s working on that. But not a weed problem.

    "That's something I've definitely been working on and something I can definitely fix," Gregory told ESPN Radio’s “Cowlishaw and Mosley” recently, via the Dallas Morning News. "I'm 22 years old but I think I carry myself real well and I think I need to carry myself a little bit better as far as decision making goes. I think a lot of people are getting tied up in the weed and think it's just a weed problem.

    “I don't think it's a weed problem. I think it's decision making. I think I'm immature. I'm definitely working on that. I want to prove everyone wrong and I want to do it with this team. I think this is the best team I can do that with.”

    The Cowboys will put a support system in place for Gregory much in the same way they put a support system in place for the last player who came in with well publicized concerns over “character issues,” Dez Bryant. In the mean time, the Nebraska product says he hasn’t so much as been around marijuana of late.

    “I haven't touched it,” Gregory said. “I'm feeling real good, too. This is a high in itself, to be honest. I'm high on life right now, and I don't want to lose this high.”
