Sources report that Defensive Lineman Greg Hardy will visit the Dallas Cowboys this week and that Mr. Hardy’s agent has already been negotiating with team sources. Greg Hardy’s Agent Negotiating with Dallas Cowboys
The acquisition of Hardy would be a major boost to a Dallas Cowboys’ defensive unit which was respectable last year but lack any significant pass rush. Many commentators expected the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive to perform poorly last year after a dismal performance the previous year where the defense was one of the worst in the entire NFL and gave up almost 33 points per game if Reuters stats are to be believed. The addition of Greg Hardy would add a fierce pass rusher to a team that almost made it to the super bowl last year and is still recovering from the loss of NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray to free agency. The Cowboys are balancing their decisions to make the entire team better and stay under the NFL salary cap. The Cowboys will return a stellar offensive unit from last year even with the loss of Murray. It is defense which needs to be bolstered and which has the greatest need.
Any criticism of Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones has been reserved as a result of the team’s performance last year and the team’s potential this coming year. If Hardy is able to be added, then the Cowboys can go into the NFl draft and focus on a running back, two key defensive players and a tight end.
