Report: NFLPA appeals Greg Hardy suspension


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) The NFL Players Association has appealed the 10-game suspension of Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy, per the Charlotte Observer.

The union is expected to claim that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell applied the discipline retroactively under the new personal conduct policy, which was not enacted until December - seven months after Hardy was arrested on domestic violence charges.

Goodell, however, has claimed that the suspension is identical to what it would have been under the old policy for conduct detrimental to the league.

Hardy, who signed an incentive-enhanced one-year deal with Dallas in March, could lose as much as $5.8 million if the suspension stands.


Cowboys' Greg Hardy called 'woman beater' by teammate


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy got into an altercation with teammate Davon Coleman during a voluntary offseason workout, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports

Hardy reportedly questioned Coleman's work ethic during a conditioning drill, which led Coleman to call Hardy a "woman beater."

Hardy was accused of domestic abuse and was found guilty by a North Carolina judge. On the subsequent appeal, prosecutors dropped charges against Hardy and the case was never presented in front of a jury. 

Hardy has been suspended by the NFL for 10 games due to what transpired in that case. According to FOX Sports, the confrontation between Hardy and Coleman remained verbal


NFL suspends Cowboys DE Greg Hardy 10 games without pay


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) The NFL has suspended Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy 10 games without pay, the league announced Wednesday.

Hardy, who only played one game last season after being placed on the Commissioner's exempt list, signed with Dallas in the offseason after the Panthers parted ways with the veteran. Hardy recently resolved his domestic violence charges out of court when a settlement was reached between he and his ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder. The league noted that Hardy violated the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, leading to the suspension.

Commissioner Roger Goodell had stern words for Hardy in his announcement.

"You must have no further adverse involvement with law enforcement and must not commit any additional violations of league policies," Commissioner Goodell wrote. "In that respect, you should understand that another violation of this nature may result in your banishment from the NFL."

Hardy has three days to appeal the suspension and it will begin September 5, the final day of roster reductions. He will be able to participate in all preseason activities. His first week of eligibility will be Week 11 when the Cowboys face the Panthers on Thanksgiving.

"This suspension is something that we anticipated prior to Greg's signing, and we respect the Commissioner's ruling," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "Our organization understands the very serious nature of this matter. We will use our resources--work closely with Greg and with the league--to ensure a positive outcome."


Attorney: Greg Hardy seeks to have domestic charges expunged


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy has filed a petition to have domestic violence charges expunged from the record, according to his attorney per the Charlotte Observer.

The process to have the charges removed could take up to four months.

"Every day Americans who have misdemeanor charges dismissed file for expungement of the charges from their record," said Chris Fialko, Hardy's attorney.

Hardy has the charges against him dismissed in February after his accuser and ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder was unable to testify in a jury trial. Holder received a settlement from Hardy in an undisclosed amount, according to prosecutors.


NFL receives permission for photos in Greg Hardy investigation


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) The NFL has obtained permission to access photos submitted into evidence for Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy's domestic violence case, according to ESPN.com.

A judge in North Carolina signed off on all parties, including the NFL and NFLPA, involved in the case to have access to photos of alleged assault against Hardy's former girlfriend, without the district attorney giving up custody of the images. 

A decision from the NFL in Hardy's case has yet to be handed down, but is expected to be announced soon, according to ESPN's Ed Werder. The images in the assault case will help the league determine punishment to be handed down on Hardy, who signed a one-year deal with Dallas this offseason.

"We are trying to get as many facts as we possibly can to make the most informed decision we can so that we can uphold standards that we put forward in our personal conduct policy," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said last week at the owners meeting. "So I expect that that will conclude sometime in the near future and we'll make a decision shortly after."

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Defensive end Greg Hardy , recently signed by the Cowboys, will start at right defensive end for the team, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The 26-year-old had double-digit sack totals the two years prior to 2014, 15 and 11 respectively. Over his five-year career, he has registered 204 total tackles, 34.0 sacks, 15 passes defensed and seven forced fumbles.


Cowboys won't promise not to tag Dez Bryant


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) When the Cowboys signed defensive end Greg Hardy , the team included a clause in Hardy's contract saying he couldn't receive the franchise or transition tag after the season. 

Wide receiver Dez Bryant will not receive the same type of clause, Dallas executive vice president Stephen Jones said. 

"I don't have that kind of interest in doing that," Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. "While he may find one thing he likes about Hardy's contract, after that I don't think there's a lot for him to like about it.'' 

Most of Hardy's money is non-guaranteed.


Cowboys feel DE Greg Hardy can be right kind of guy


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Head coach Jason Garrett and the Cowboys think that defensive end Greg Hardy can overcome the adversity he faced last season, per the team's official website.

"If we didn’t believe that Greg Hardy could become the right kind of guy we would not have signed him. We were not going to sign a contract where we didn’t have that ability to hold him accountable," said Garrett.

Hardy only played in one game last season due to being placed on the commissioner's exempt list. The 26-year-old had a career-year in 2013 finishing with 15 sacks. He recently signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys worth up to $13 million.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

DE Greg Hardy meeting with NFL officials Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/4/2015) Defensive end Greg Hardy, who remains on the commissioner's exempt list, was in New York on Wednesday to meet with NFL officials, reports Pro Football Talk. The league is investigating Hardy's arrest last year on domestic violence charges and it's unclear if Hardy will be suspended.

He's scheduled to hit free agency next Tuesday. Hardy, 26, posted 26 sacks in 2012-13 for the Panthers before going on the exempt list after one game last season.

A judge convicted Hardy of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend, but he asked for a jury trial and the case was dismissed when his accuser could not be located to testify.

Report: Panthers won't re-sign Greg Hardy


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

NFL on Panthers' Greg Hardy: He hasn't been disciplined


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy reportedly is ready to immediately file for reinstatement from the Commissioner's Exempt list. However, the NFL's stance at this time is that there is nothing for Hardy to be reinstated from.

“He hasn’t been disciplined," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Charlotte Observer. "There is nothing for him to seek reinstatement from at this point."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell placed Hardy on the Commissioner's Exempt list early this season. Hardy was accused of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Holder, and was found guilty by a judge last summer. However, upon appeal to a jury, the case was dismissed after Holder failed to show up to court and shut off communication with the prosecution. 

Hardy wants to be reinstated to the 53-man roster now that a federal judge ruled in favor of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson in his case against the NFL. Judge David Doty ruled that an NFL arbitrator wrongly upheld the league's suspension against him and referred his case back to the collective bargaining agreement.
