Greg Hardy Worked Out For Jaguars

7:50pm: Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole tweets that the Jaguars did not offer Hardy a contract, and he notes that a signing does not appear to be “imminent.” Cole says the organization was simply doing their “homework” on the former Pro Bowler. Meanwhile,’s Mike Garafolo tweets that the Jaguars have been talking to players and staff regarding a potential Hardy signing.

Finally (and for what it’s worth), Florio tweets a prediction: the Jaguars will keep their distance from Hardy as they gauge the public’s reaction to the work out.

6:41pm: Defensive end Greg Hardy remains a free agent, although the former Pro Bowler is finally starting to generate some interest from teams. Rand Getlin of the NFL Network tweets that the 27-year-old recently “visited and worked out” with the Jaguars. Mike Florio of says the free agent spent the past two days with the team. Meanwhile, Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union tweets that there’s “nothing cooking” besides the visit.

Greg HardyFollowing a well-publicized domestic violence incident (and a subsequent suspension) back in 2014, Hardy played 12 games for the Cowboys last season. The lineman compiled 35 tackles, six sacks, an interception, and a forced fumble in 2015. These are certainly impressive numbers, but they were still a far cry from Hardy’s production with the Panthers. Between 2011 and 2013, the former sixth-round pick averaged 56 tackles and 10 sacks a season.

Whether it was due to his off-field issues or his drop in production, Hardy wasn’t generating much interest this offseason. Jerry Jones made it clear that Hardy wouldn’t be back with the Cowboys, and there was a “prevailing opinion” around the league that no organization wanted the defensive end. PFR’s Dallas Robinson looked at potential landing spots for the veteran back in May.

According to Roster Resource, Dante Fowler Jr. and Jared Odrick figure to be the Jaguars starters at defensive end. However, Hardy would certainly help improve a depth chart that includes a pair of late-round rookies.

    I think it would be a great fit, and he would be an outstanding addition.

    The Jags should steer clear of this cancer. He’s a cancer off the field and also one in the locker room. He will destroy the team. I hated this guy with a passion when he was on the Cowboys.
