Greg Hardy, who was signed by the Dallas Cowboys in the recent offseason, could be with the team on a long-term deal, the team’s official said in various interviews.
According to a report from the league’s official website, both Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones confirmed that there is a possibility that Hardy is signed to a long-term deal.
The controversial defensive end had a verbal altercation with teammate Dez Bryant in the Cowboys’ most recent game and was signed by the Cowboys despite his history of domestic violence.
Hardy, who was a sixth round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft or the 175th overall selection, played for the Carolina Panthers in the previous five seasons but played in only a single game in 2014 after being placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt List due to the domestic violence issue.
Hardy, who was signed to a one-year deal worth $11.3 million by the Cowboys, has suited up for two games for Dallas this season registering 8 tackles and 2 sacks plus one forced fumble. For his career, he has a total of 212 tackles, 37 sacks and 8 forced fumbles in 65 regular season games and 6 tackles in just one playoff game.
Hardy’s two games with Dallas season were both losses, to the New England Patriots (30-6) and the New York Giants (27-20). The Cowboys are currently on a four-game losing streak after winning their first two games of the season.
