Panthers pay Greg Hardy to show up to workouts


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

He'll be able to collect if he shows up to four workouts per week. Without this advance, the Panthers would be able to keep all of Hardy's money until September.

Greg Hardy signs franchise tender


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/4/2014) Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy signed his franchise tender Tuesday, reports Pro Football Talk. 

Hardy will now be paid $13.116 million for one season, and he hopes to parlay the franchise tender into a long-term deal. The move puts Hardy under contract for 2014 and prevents him from flirting with another team and ultimately signing an offer sheet.

In signing the tender, Hardy gives up the ability to hold out of training camp without being fined $30,000 per day, since he's under contract.


All franchise tags of the non-exclusive variety


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) The four players who got franchised -- the Saints' Jimmy Graham, the Panthers' Greg Hardy, the Jets' Nick Folk and the Redskins' Brian Orakpo -- all received non-exclusive tags. That means they can sign offer sheets with any team.

However, the signing teams would have to give up two first-round draft picks if the tagging team decided not to match. It's highly unlikely any team would give up that much, even for superstars like Graham or Hardy.

Panthers, Greg Hardy working on deal


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/28/2014) The Panthers remain in discussions with defensive end Greg Hardy about a long-term deal, reports the Charlotte Observer.

The report says the Panthers met recently with Drew Rosenhaus, Hardy’s agent, and the two sides have had ongoing negotiations. Hardy is looking for a contract commensurate with his place among the league’s best pass rushers after totaling 26 sacks over the past two seasons.

Most industry experts believe he could draw a deal worth an average of $12 million to $14 million per season, with as much as $25 million in guaranteed money, if he hits the open market. But he's also still eligible for the franchise tag.


Greg Hardy's return to Carolina more realistic


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) The Panthers have restructured three veterans' contracts, creating $7.25 million in cap room, and they're now more than $28 million under the projected cap, reports ESPN.com. That makes it more likely the team can keep impending free agent defensive end Greg Hardy, who led Carolina with 15 sacks.

The Panthers could strike a long-term deal with Hardy or put the franchise tag on him. The latter would cost them about $12 million in 2014. Coach Ron Rivera said at the NFL Scouting Combine that he'd "like to believe" Hardy is coming back.

"He's important," Rivera said, per the website. "As I've talked to [GM] Dave [Gettleman] about all the different things we're trying to do, one thing you always want to try to do is keep your strength strong. Our defensive line was very strong for us. So I'm very optimistic about what we can become as a football team."


Report: Greg Hardy 'seems bound' for franchise tag


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, an impending free agent, "seems bound for the franchise tag," reports NFL.com. The tag for defensive ends is projected to be around $12.5 million, meaning Carolina would be spending more than $20 million on two pass rushers in 2014 since Charles Johnson is set to make $8.75 million.

Hardy matched a franchise record with 15 sacks last season, giving him 26 the past two years. If he reaches free agency, he'll be the premier defensive end on the market.


Greg Hardy a 'long shot' to land with Buccaneers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) The Buccaneers have a significant need for a defensive end and free agent Greg Hardy is "a rare talent who's in his prime," reports ESPN.com. But the website calls Hardy a long shot to end up in Tampa Bay, noting he'd eat up nearly all the team's available cap space.

The website expects the Bucs to add a defensive end through the draft or free agency, but not Hardy. Hardy recorded 15 sacks for the Panthers last season.
