Former Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory visits Cardinals

One of the best pass rushers available in the upcoming draft visited the Arizona Cardinals over the weekend.

In his two seasons at Nebraska, the standout defensive end had 17.5 sacks, 120 total tackles and two forced fumbles. He also had two interceptions, with one resulting in a touchdown. Gregory was named second-team All-American and first-team All-Big-Ten in 2014.

The Cardinals are just one of many teams Gregory has visited leading up to the draft. Just last week, he met with the Baltimore Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He plans to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Diego Chargers next.

The former Cornhusker has been involved in some off the field issues in the last year and a half. Gregory tested positive for marijuana at the NFL combine, something that could affect his draft stock.

That was just the latest incident in a detailed history involving marijuana. Gregory jeopardized his season in 2014 when he failed two drug tests; one in January and one in April.

The Cardinals are interested in the defensive end because they have a need for a pass rusher. Just three players had more than two sacks last season, and Arizona was 24th in the NFL with 35 sacks as a team.
