Draft Scout Greg Hardy News
03/31/17 - DE Greg Hardy will not be joining an Indoor Football League team and fans in Utah voted against adding former NFL Pro Bowler to the roster.
A 10-hour fan vote conducted by the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles concluded with a trophy placed in the "no" column to sign Hardy, according to ESPN. The result on the team app was a virtual 50-50 tie, but an undisclosed percentage-point margin shifted the final tally against signing Hardy.
The Screaming Eagles said they would sign Hardy, provided fans approved in the online vote.
11/22/15 - DE Greg Hardy had a sitdown with Dallas owner Jerry Jones and was advised of ways to avoid being a distraction.
ESPN reported the meeting took place amidst reports the front office was wavering in its support of the controversial pass rusher.
"If anyone knows how to hunker down, it's me," Jones said. "I know when you've lost all your benefits of the doubt and you so much as run as a stop sign or step out of bounds you're fixing to answer a lot of questions."
11/08/15 - DE Greg Hardy finished off a long weekend with three tackles, including a sack. In the two days leading up to game, he dealt with a Deadspin report detailing his alleged domestic-violence incident that took place before joining Dallas. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones defended Hardy. "Greg has a commitment to us," Jones said. "He has a commitment to do the right thing. We expect him to do the right thing. He has a commitment to his teammates and our team. The way it's set up in the NFL, relative to behavior, and in fact we wanted to give Greg a second chance."
11/06/15 - DE Greg Hardy's domestic violence charges filed last year in North Carolina have been expunged.
Hardy originally was suspended for 10 games by the NFL for multiple violations of its personal-conduct policy resulting from an incident with former girlfriend Nicole Holder in the spring of 2014 while he was with the Carolina Panthers.
Hardy was found guilty by a Mecklenburg County (N.C.) judge of assault and making death threats against Holder. However, Hardy appealed the ruling, and the charges against him were dismissed after Holder refused to cooperate with the district attorney's office. Hardy reportedly reached a civil settlement with Holder, which prompted her to not show up for the jury trial.
In July, his NFL-imposed ban was reduced to four games by an arbitrator. Hardy played in only one game last season for the Panthers after he was placed on commissioner Roger Goodell's exempt list. In March, Hardy signed a one-year contract worth up to $13.2 million with the Cowboys.
11/01/15 - DE Greg Hardy logged his first career interception in the third quarter, helping the Cowboys take the lead. He batted down a Russell Wilson pass with his right hand and hauled in the deflection, returning the pick 9 yards to Seattle 16-yard line. A subsequent field goal gave Dallas a 12-10 edge. Asked about playing well, Hardy replied: "Wins define my 'good,' my value scale. If you're not getting the (win), nothing else matters."
