The latest on Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy:
- When asked about a contract extension for Hardy on Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones only spoke hypothetically, as Clarence E. Hill of the Star-Telegram writes. “Greg knows what’s expected and nobody is more aware of the scrutiny and nobody is more aware, now ever more so, of what we expect of him,” Jones said. “The good news is we go forward. We see if we get what’s expected of him, which I fully anticipate you would get. But we see how and what’s expected of him and we go from there. We don’t…as a practice, discuss detail of extending or not extending. I’ll give an indication, but that’s about it. So we’ll leave it for that. I have no reason to think that Greg won’t do what’s expected of him throughout the year.”
- Hardy wasn’t just late for a team meeting on Thursday, as previously reported — he missed it entirely, according to a source who spoke with David Moore of The Dallas Morning News (on Twitter). Hardy, of course, was only fined for that transgression and not suspended.
- The Cowboys need to move on from Hardy next year, Rick Gosselin of The Dallas Morning News opines. Gosselin feels that whoever signs the defensive end will be in for a firestorm and, therefore, he is not worth the trouble.
