Dallas Cowboys Won’t Resign Greg Hardy, Claim He Partied Throughout the Season
Whether or not they’re willing to admit it, the Dallas Cowboys made a big mistake when they signed Greg Hardy last offseason.
From the looks of it, they’re not going to make that mistake again.
According to reports from Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, the Cowboys will not re-sign Hardy. It is also believed that the defensive end’s conditioning was an issue throughout the course of the season, likely due to excessive partying.
Here’s what Cole had to say on the issue:
“In talking to sources close to Dallas defensive end Greg Hardy, the expectation from their side is that the Cowboys are not going to bring Hardy back after a tumultuous first season with the team and a tumultuous season after his return to the league after a one-year suspension. The problem for the Cowboys is that Hardy partied a lot during the season and was not in great physical shape as the season wore on and on and on. That was part of the reason he was tardy to several meetings during the season and part of the reason why the team felt so distracted by his presence.”
If excessive partying is an issue for the Cowboys, they may want to do their homework on Johnny Manziel before they even consider signing him as a possible back-up to Tony Romo.
