The Cowboys are invested in giving Randy Gregory the best chance at success.

Even if that means he’s not rooming with another Cowboy during training camp.

According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram Kris Versteeg Jersey , the reinstated defensive end won’t share a room with another player during camp, the way the rest of the team does. Instead, he’ll have a “professional accountability partner” with him, and that person will also live with him when he returns to Dallas after training camp

Otherwise, his camp experience will be familiar, though nothing about Gregory’s path moving forward can be considered normal.

He has been reinstated after more than a year’s suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

And staying reinstated requires him to continue the plan developed by his doctors, and adhering to strict guidelines, including increased drug tests (up to 10 a month) and counseling and treatment programs.

The Cowboys have a vested interest in Gregory, in part because he showed in college he can be a disruptive pass-rusher. But they’ve also taken on the human side of this Luke Schenn Jersey Kids , and being willing to let him room with a non-football player in camp to give him the best chance seems to be a sign they’re doing it for the human reasons as well.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has received a five-year contract extension, a reward for accomplishments that include rapid growth in the value of franchises and attendance records around the league being set annually.

Board of Governors Chairman Larry Tanenbaum of the Toronto Raptors announced the deal, one that keeps Silver under contract through the 2024 NBA Finals. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Silver, 56, led a very smooth series of negotiations with the NBA players union on the way to a new collective bargaining agreement in 2016 – one where salaries around the league soared thanks to a $24.1 billion, nine-year television and media rights deal that he helped strike with Disney and Turner Sports two years earlier.

Franchise values of the 30 NBA clubs have risen fivefold, from an estimated $12 billion when Silver took over to $60 billion now. This was also the fourth consecutive season where the league set an all-time attendance record, with 22.1 million fans attending games in 2017-18.

This season also marked the launch of the first eSports league – the NBA 2K League, which Silver has raved about.

”From the NBA’s standpoint Calais Campbell Jersey , this is our fourth league,” he said earlier this year. ”Of course we have the NBA, the WNBA and the G League, and now this is the fourth league in our family, and that’s exactly as we’re treating it: one more professional league.”

Silver has been with the NBA since 1992, and became deputy commissioner under David Stern in 2005. When Stern retired on Feb. 1, 2014 after holding the office for 30 years, Silver took over as the fifth commissioner in NBA history.
