"Several teams" have expressed interest in Hardy this offseason, agent Drew Rosenhaus said Friday on Pro Football Talk Live with Mike Floria. "Teams have shown interest, but nothing is imminent," Rosenhaus said. "I can't sit here and say I'm overly optimistic."
While it isn't clear if Hardy is anywhere close to getting another chance in the NFL, it doesn't sound as if he's a complete afterthought in league circles yet. The 28-year-old has a chance to display his talents Saturday night at The Spring League Showcase -- along with former NFL running backs Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon -- and it'll be interesting to see if these supposed teams maintain interest in him after his performance.
Hardy was arrested in Richardson, TX for possession of a controlled substance Sunday, NBC 5 Dallas reports.
The legal ramifications aside, Hardy has remained a free agent to this point in the season due to his status as a near pariah in NFL circles, what with a past filled with domestic violence allegations, among other check marks against him. Don't expect this development to endear himself to any remaining interested parties.
Cowboys' owner, president, and general manager Jerry Jones said Friday that Hardy will not rejoin the Cowboys in 2016, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The 27-year-old made 12 appearances during his one season in Dallas after spending the first five seasons of his career with Carolina. Despite his questionable reputation after spending nearly all of the 2014 season on the commissioner's exempt list, Hardy still offers on-the-field prowess and could certainly find his way into a starter's role in time for training camp.
Hardy (illness) is active for Sunday's game against Washington, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.
Hardy battled an illness all week, but gradually increased his practice participation as the week moved on. Despite the game being meaningless in terms of playoff seeding, Hardy and the Cowboys will look to finish a tumultuous 2015 season on a high note.
Hardy had four tackles and an interception in Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Seahawks.
The INT was the defense's first turnover since Week 3. Were it not for a tackle by Russell Wilson, Hardy might well have returned his pick to the house and won the game for the Cowboys, as they only managed a field goal on the subsequent possession. He'll try to get back in the sack column next week against Sam Bradford and the Eagles.
Hardy (illness) is listed as active Sunday at the Giants.
Hardy will brush off a late-week illness to aid in the Cowboys' pass rush, of which he's accounted for two of the team's 11 sacks in his only appearance of 2015.
Hardy (illness) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Added to Thursday's injury report as a non-participant, Hardy should still have plenty of time to recover from whatever illness is bothering him. He had five tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in his Cowboys debut.
Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy missed practice Thursday due to an illness, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Hardy made his presence felt in his sole appearance of the season in Week 5, sacking Tom Brady twice among five tackles while adding a forced fumble. With an illness in tow, his ability to suit up Sunday at the Giants could be hindered. The Friday injury report will ultimately shed light on the situation.
Hardy was a force on the pass rush in his Cowboys debut Sunday, collecting five tackles including two sacks and forcing a fumble.
The Cowboys will be on bye next week, but beginning in Week 7 expect Hardy to be a consistent IDP asset for the remainder of the season.
Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy was officially reinstated to the Cowboys roster Monday after serving his four-game suspension.
Defensive tackle Ken Bishop got waived to make room for him on the 53-man roster. Hardy joins a Dallas pass rush that has only six sacks through four games and should be itching to make a good impression with his new team when they take on the Patriots in Week 5.
Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy suffered a strain in his left side during Thursday's practice, which the team said is not considered serious, per the Dallas Morning News.
Hardy told fans "I'm invicible," as he signed autographs after practice. The Cowboys training staff was checking out Hardy after practice as a precautionary measure.
"To be honest with you, with Greg right from the start, he was actually going too hard," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "He was going too hard in the weight room and too hard on the field early on in the offseason."
Although an arbitrator reduced Greg Hardy's suspension from 10 to four games, the Cowboys defensive end could consider legal action to have the suspension reduced even more, as the NFLPA contends based on the personal conduct policy in place when Hardy’s arrest for domestic violence occurred that he should miss only two games.
A decision on whether Hardy accepts the four-game ban or takes legal action against the league is expected soon, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday the next step is completely up to Hardy.
The Cowboys signed Hardy in March before commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Hardy for 10 games for “conduct detrimental to the league.”
Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy had his suspension reduced from 10 to four games, the NFL announced Friday.
A judge found Hardy guilty of domestic violence in July 2014 and sentenced him to 18 months probation after suspending a 60-day jail sentence. The NFL suspended Hardy 10 games in April, noting that Hardy violated the league's personal conduct policy.
“After consideration of all the record evidence and arguments, I conclude that the Commissioner acted within his authority and properly exercised his discretion in finding that Hardy violated the NFL Personal Conduct Policy,” arbitrator Harold Henderson said in a statement Friday. “I find that the conduct of Hardy clearly violates the letter and spirit of any version of the PCP since its inception, and of the NFL Constitution and Bylaws long before then. The egregious conduct exhibited here is indefensible in the NFL.
“However, 10 games is simply too much, in my view, of an increase over prior cases without notice such as was done last year, when the ‘baseline’ for discipline in domestic violence or sexual assault cases was announced as a six-game suspension. Therefore, the discipline of Mr. Hardy hereby is modified to a suspension of four games; all other terms of the discipline letter remain in place.”
