Charles Haley is the go-to example when discussing the Dallas Cowboys' propensity to give talented but troubled players a chance in the NFL.
"He's got an owner that's not only going to stand with him, but stand in front of him and take some of the blows," Haley said. "And Jerry (Jones) is not alone. He has a family of ex-players that love the Dallas Cowboys and are willing to come back and help."
"The film that I saw, hey, the guy can get it done," Haley said. "I just can't believe that they got him in the second round. The Cowboys got a steal. You can't have enough pass rushers.
"The guy should come in with a chip on his shoulder from being a second-rounder. Just like a lot of those guys that got drafted later, you come here with an attitude ready to work, because most guys come in as a first rounder and they think they already got it. He's got something to prove."
Proving it on the field isn't the biggest concern when it comes to Gregory; it's proving they can keep him out of trouble off it.
