Report: Greg Hardy to meet with NFL brass Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy is scheduled to meet with NFL officials in New York on Wednesday about domestic violence charges against him that were dropped, a league source told the Charlotte Observer. Misdemeanor charges against Hardy were dismissed when prosecutors could not locate Hardy's accuser to testify against him in a jury trial, the paper said.

Hardy will become a free agent March 10, and potential suitors "will want to know if and for how long Hardy will be suspended," the report said.

Hardy had 26 sacks in 2012-13 before playing in one game last season. The NFL put him on the Commissioner's Exempt List after Hardy was found guilty by a judge last summer of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend.

Report: Panthers won't re-sign Greg Hardy


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Panthers DE Greg Hardy is scheduled to become a free agent on March 10. He missed most of last season while appealing his conviction for domestic violence. 

Even though the charges were dropped on appeal, the Panthers have no intention of bringing Hardy back, multiple league sources told BlackandBlueReview.com's Bill Voth


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. 


After Peterson ruling, Hardy reportedly seeks reinstatement


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) With a federal judge tossing out an NFL arbitrator's decision to uphold Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's suspension, Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy will seek immediate reinstatement to the league, according to a report from ESPN

Both Peterson and Hardy have been on the Commissioner's Exempt list following off-field legal issues. Peterson pleaded no contest to reckless assault on his son, which originally stemmed from child abuse allegations. 

Hardy was charged with assaulting an ex-girlfriend and found guilty by a North Carolina judge. Hardy appealed the ruling to a jury, though the prosecution threw the case out once Hardy's ex, Nicole Holder, failed to show to court or cooperate in the case. 

Judge David Doty ruled in favor of Peterson, which opens the door to his reinstatement to the league. The arbitrator's ruling that allowed the NFL to uphold the suspension has been thrown out, sending the case back to the collective bargaining agreement. 


Panthers won't comment on Greg Hardy's status


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Panthers coach Ron Rivera and GM Dave Gettleman both met with the media at the combine in Indianapolis, Thursday. Neither painted a rosy picture of Greg Hardy's future with the team. 

Hardy spent most of the season on the commissioner's exempt list after being found guilty of domestic violence, a charge that was later dropped on appeal. 

Gettleman said he had "nothing to say" about Hardy and hasn't spoken to him since September. Rivera also declined comment. 

The most damning comment from Gettleman wasn't, on the surface, directed at Hardy. When asked about drafting players with character issues, Gettleman said, "Who wants a ticking time bomb?" 


NFL requests all evidence from Greg Hardy's first trial


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Panthers DE Greg Hardy had domestic violence charges against him dropped in early February, but he still faces discipline from the NFL. 

The league has requested all the evidence from Hardy's first trial. He was found guilty of the charges last July but had them dropped when his accuser didn't show up for his appeal. 

The league filed a motion requesting the evidence on Friday, according to Michael Gordon of the Charlotte Observer. The league argued that, since Hardy's case is over, there's no reason the evidence can't be made public. 


Panthers DE Greg Hardy remaining on exempt list


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) As of now, there will be no change in Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy's status with the organization following his domestic abuse case being dismissed on Monday.

"We are aware of the decision by the district attorney's office to dismiss charges against Greg Hardy," the Panthers said in a statement. "Greg remains on the Commissioner's Exempt List and the NFL has advised us to allow it to complete its review under the Personal Conduct Policy. There is no change in his status at this time."

Hardy is set to be a free agent once the new league year begins on March 10.


Panthers' Greg Hardy has domestic violence case dismissed


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy's case involving domestic abuse allegations against a former girlfriend was dismissed on Monday, district attorney Andrew Murray said via the Charlotte Observer.

Hardy was previously found guilty by a judge for assaulting ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder and appealed to have a new trial in front of a jury in a Superior Court. The prosecution cited a settlement between Hardy and Holder as one of the reasons to dismiss the case. In addition, Holder did not show to the trial, with the prosecution saying the state was unable to locate Holder.

The judge presiding over the case accepted the dismissal.

Upon leaving the courtroom, Hardy declined to comment when approached by reporters. It remains to be seen if the NFL levies any punishment on Hardy.

Hardy was accused of assaulting Holder, which included flinging her into a bathtub, throwing her on top of a futon covered in guns and attempting to choke her. Hardy denied those claims and said Holder was angry the night in question after being told to leave his home. Holder was under the influence of alcohol and admitted to cocaine use the night in question.

After playing in Carolina's season-opener, Hardy was moved to the exempt/commissioner's permission list for the remainder of the season. Though he only participated in one game, Hardy, given the franchise tag during the 2014 offseason, still earned $13.116 million.


Report: Panthers not expected to bring back Greg Hardy


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/8/2015) As Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy prepares for his trial on domestic violence charges, the Panthers have already decided not to bring Hardy back next season, sources told The Charlotte Observer.

Hardy appeared in one game for the Panthers in 2014 before being placed on the commissioner's exempt list after being charged with domestic violence. Despite the allegations, Joel Corry of CBSSports.com believes Hardy will find a suitor if the Panthers don’t want him back.

"Hardy's going to get more of the benefit of the doubt just because he's a Pro Bowl-caliber player in his prime," Corry said. "So that's going to tip the scales for some owners that [think], I know you've got issues, but this guy can really play. If he couldn't really play, he might be out of the league."


Panthers DE Greg Hardy to stand trial Feb. 9


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2015) Greg Hardy's jury trial on domestic violence charges will begin Feb. 9, reports the Charlotte Observer. A judge convicted the Panthers defensive end last July of assaulting a female and communicating threats, prompting Hardy to seek a jury trial.

An impending free agent, Hardy played in one game before being placed on the commissioner's exempt list. He still made $13.1 million under the franchise tag.

Yahoo Sports reports Hardy's teammates want him to return to the team, but it's unclear if owner Jerry Richardson will consider re-signing Hardy, who had 15 sacks in 2013.

On exempt list, Panthers' Greg Hardy cashes in on playoff win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2015) Although he remains on the commissioner's exempt list while awaiting a jury trial on domestic violence, Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy netted $48,000 from his team's playoff win Saturday, reports ESPN.com. That's the amount each Carolina player made from the victory.
