The Dallas Cowboys were duped this morning by star defender Randy Gregory.

In an unexpected turn of events, the team had reportedly agreed to terms with the pass rusher before Gregory spurned his former team for the Denver Broncos. The Cowboys were so confident that the deal had been done that the Dallas social media team posted news of the re-signing on Twitter.

Not so fast, my friend.

The agreement was apparently broken due to the Cowboys’ insistence on adding extra language to the contract after the fact. This could’ve had something to do with Gregory’s issues early on in his career. The defensive end wasn’t listening to what Dallas had to say past that moment.

With a deal not getting done, owner Jerry Jones is reportedly “livid.”

Apparently, the change in contract language was not Jones’s idea. So who’s to blame for the tweak that caused the Cowboys to lose out on Gregory?

NFL World Reacts, Blames Jerry Jones’s Kids For Randy Gregory Mix-up

Cowboys’ fans are turning to Jerry Jones’s sons as the fall guys.

Stephen and Jerry Jr. have voiced their stance on taking fewer risks when they gain control of the team. And Gregory does bring risk with his drug issues in the past.

With Jerry reportedly being the main driver behind getting this deal done, it makes sense that his kids could be the culprits in its collapse.

At least that’s what Dallas fans believe.

It stings for the Cowboys as they’d been able to talk Gregory into taking less money than originally anticipated. Unfortunately, they tried to do a little too much and it wound up biting them.
