The Cowboys have had enough of defensive end Greg Hardy and won’t re-sign him, according to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report via Black Sports Online.
Hardy signed a one-year contract with the Cowboys before the 2015 season. He was suspended for 10 games in connection with a domestic violence incident in which he threw a woman onto a bed full of guns, but that suspension was reduced to four games.
For everyone grumbling about Cam Newton, this game could be MUCH worse: Greg Hardy could still be playing for the #Panthers.

The defensive end had six sacks in 12 games this season. Four of those sacks came in his first four games. He had only two in the last eight games of the season, and the Cowboys forced just seven turnovers in those eight games.
Not only did Hardy’s productivity wane from a statistical standpoint as the season went on, but he also was late to several team meetings.
The Cowboys will try to rebound from a disappointing season in 2016 and don’t need the headaches that Hardy brings.
The Panthers seem to be doing OK without him.
