Cowboys Greg Hardy will start at right defensive end


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.

Hardy played in only one game last season for the Panthers after being placed on the commissioner's exempt list due to domestic violence charges.

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.

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

"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.

DE Greg Hardy visiting Cowboys


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"Nothing's imminent" on Hardy, who is potentially facing a suspension relating to his domestic-abuse incident.

Report: 'Good chance' DE Greg Hardy gets six-game suspension


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

A judge last year 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.

King reported Hardy "certainly is repelling his share of suitors" due to his potential suspension and "the public battering" a team would incur for signing him. Hardy, 26, posted 26 sacks in 2012 and 2013 for the Panthers before spending most of last season on the commissioner's exempt list.

He had 26 sacks in 2012-13 before playing in one game last season. He has tallied 204 total tackles, 34 sacks, 15 passes defensed and seven forced fumbles in his five-year run with the Panthers.

Report: Falcons have no interest in Greg Hardy

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told the Associated Press on Thursday that there is nothing to prevent players on the exempt list without a contract from signing a new one.

DE Greg Hardy meeting with NFL officials Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(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.

PFT suggests Hardy's reps and the NFL "will try to strike a deal." One possibility is Hardy agreeing to a suspension while being given "a free and clear path to free agency," the report said. ESPN.com predicts the Bengals will pursue Hardy in free agency.

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.

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.

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.
