Report: Dallas Cowboys done with Greg Hardy
The Dallas Cowboys reportedly won’t try to retain free agent-to-be Greg Hardy.
On Monday, Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas cited sources saying that the Cowboys won’t attempt to bring back the mercurial defensive end for the 2016 season.
According to Fisher, Hardy’s off-field behavior was simply too much for Dallas to take, with reported attendance issues also being part of it.
Things clearly changed down the stretch of the season with regards to Dallas’s relationship with Hardy. In October, Jerry Jones even floated the possibility of signing Hardy long-term. Since then, the team faced photographic evidence of Hardy’s alleged domestic assault, and he reportedly lost the support of some teammates, was a headache for the coaching staff, and saw the organizational higher-ups sour on him as well due to his constant tardiness and missed meetings. Hardy said he wants to be back, but it appears that he won’t be given the opportunity, and he’ll have to figure out how to convince some other team to take a chance on him despite showing no real inclination of being remorseful or changing his ways. If even Jerry Jones has had enough of you, good luck.
