At a time when most NFL draft picks are content to ink their rookie contracts, Randy Gregory felt compelled to ink himself. Just days after being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys with the No. 60 pick, the former Nebraska star sealed his commitment in his skin.

Gregory's tattoo features the Dallas Cowboys star logo, and it represents what Gregory hopes will become a long, prosperous union.

Gregory's instant allegiance to the Cowboys franchise might be partially motivated by his painful freefall in the NFL draft, when he went from a possible first-round pick to barely landing at the end of the second round.

Even so, Gregory landed in one of the best situations possible. The Cowboys are in need of the former Husker's pass-rushing skills, and the franchise has great coaches and resources to help Gregory develop -- both on and off the field. Gregory has also said that his pre-draft meetings with the Cowboys got him very excited with what he might be able to accomplish in Dallas.

Provided he avoids any trouble in the future, Gregory's tenure in Dallas could be long and prosperous for both sides. If not, then he might come to regret that impulse tat.
