The Washington Post reports the Redskins are not considering free agent Greg Hardy.
This is how "Report:" tango goes. It's not like ESPN's Ed Werder conjured his report out of thin air. Either way, beat writer Mike Jones' report means that even if Hardy was at one point a consideration, he probably isn't anymore. Hardy is facing the same bad math with all 32 teams. The need isn't likely to outweigh his toxic reputation. Jul 26 - 2:21 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Redskins have had "internal discussions" about signing free agent DE Greg Hardy.

The Redskins' thin pass rush just loss Junior Galette for the season, and GM Scot McCloughan hasn't been shy about adding players with "character concerns," real or imagined. Hardy's are very real, but he's a dominant pass rusher who remains in his physical prime. The Redskins would be an unsurprising team to take the plunge. Perhaps no organization in the league is more used to bad PR.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell confirmed there are "no imminent plans" to sign free agent DE Greg Hardy.

Jacksonville made waves by working out Hardy last week, but it appears they were just updating their emergency list. "It was an opportunity for us," Caldwell said. "Here was a guy who was a franchise defensive end that was on the street and we tried to find out the facts of where he’s at, the truth behind him and everything that surrounds him and just do our homework." It sounds like Hardy could be an option for the Jags down the road, but for now his wait goes on.
Jul 25 - 11:06 AM

Both Profootballtalk and ESPN's Adam Schefter report the Jaguars have no immediate plans to sign free agent Greg Hardy.

Per a league source via PFT, the Jags "wanted to learn more about Hardy so that they’ll know more about him if at some point down the road they need him." The Jags are essentially updating their emergency list. Of course, they're also almost certainly gauging public reaction to the pariah Hardy's visit. The Jags are Hardy's only-known workout of the offseason.
Jul 21 - 8:53 PM

The Florida Times Union reports the Jaguars aren't on the verge of signing free agent Greg Hardy.

Per reporter Ryan O'Halloran, "nothing" is imminent. As Profootballtalk's Mike Florio theorizes, the Jags could have leaked Hardy's workout to gauge public reaction before signing him. Needless to say, it's not going to be good. The Jags have a young defensive line, but it's deep on paper. Hardy would be a luxury, but isn't a necessity.
Jul 21 - 7:39 PM

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports free agent DE Greg Hardy worked out for the Jaguars.

Per Profootballtalk's Mike Florio, Hardy spent two days in Jacksonville. SI's Albert Breer says the Jags have been considering signing Hardy since the spring. It's surprising on a number of levels. Hardy hadn't generated an iota of interest this offseason, while the Jags are viewed as having one of the league's deepest and youngest front sevens. Of course, you can never have too many pass rushers, but Hardy has disgraced himself over and over again.
Jul 21 - 7:18 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the "prevailing opinion" around the league is that "nobody wants" free agent Greg Hardy.

On top of being a total headcase, Hardy didn't produce when on the field last season with the Cowboys. He has a history of domestic violence, and has also been known to skip practices with Carolina and Dallas. Agent Drew Rosenhaus has tried his best to spin Hardy into an understanding light, saying Hardy has sought treatment, but it's not enough to get Hardy another chance.
May 13 - 10:57 AM

Profootballtalk reports free agent Greg Hardy has informed teams he's sought mental health treatment.

Specifically, Hardy has "sent to all teams detailed information regarding the activities in which (he's) been engaged in order to identify and cure any and all disorders that may have contributed to past misbehavior, on and/or off the field." It's an important step, but Hardy could already be in "too little, too late" territory. He hasn't generated an iota of interest in free agency.
May 12 - 1:52 PM

Jerry Jones said the Cowboys will not re-sign free agent DE Greg Hardy.

It never looked like Hardy would be back with Dallas, but Jones has now made it official. Hardy has not received an ounce of interest on the open market. That could change as we get closer to training camp, but it remains possible Hardy is out of the league this year.
Apr 30 - 7:51 AM

In an interview with ESPN's Adam Schefter, free agent Greg Hardy insists he has never hit a woman.

"I've never put my hand on any women," were Hardy's exact words. There are mountains of evidence to the contrary, but the 27-year-old free agent has somehow decided lying through his teeth is the best strategy. Hardy remains an elite pass rusher, but is a character nightmare like few in NFL history. It's quite possible no one takes the plunge for 2016.
Apr 4 - 1:49 PM

New York has "zero interest" in free agent DE Greg Hardy, according to ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini.

Even with Sheldon Richardson and Muhammad Wilkerson headed for free agency in 2017, it wouldn't make sense for the Jets to pursue Hardy. His price could drop out of pure desperation since no one else seems to be interested, but the Jets don't need Hardy's off-field baggage and their limited cap space would be better spent on bringing back Ryan Fitzpatrick. Hardy should continue to get the cold shoulder in free agency despite being one of the best pass rushers in football.

Apr 3 - 8:36 AM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has refused to close the door on re-signing free agent DE Greg Hardy.

"We still want to leave that open," were Jones' exact words. Speaking Monday, Jones said the sides haven't had any talks, but it's clearly something he's open to. The owner of perhaps the league's most poisonous reputation amongst active players, Hardy has yet to make a visit in free agency despite being a dominant pass rusher in his prime.
Mar 22 - 5:01 PM

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said the organization has not had discussions with free agent DE Greg Hardy.

"He's a free agent," Jones responded when asked about Hardy. "A free agent we haven't had discussions with, if you want to say that." Despite the suspension of Randy Gregory and the lack of success adding talent in free agency, the Cowboys appear done with Hardy, who has not had any reported visits to this point in free agency. He could be waiting a while to find a new home.
Mar 21 - 11:39 AM

Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones insists the team has yet to reach a decision about whether it will attempt to re-sign free agent DE Greg Hardy.

Specifically, Jones said the club is "still not finalized with where we're going to come down on that." The Cowboys appeared poised to let Hardy walk, but that was before talented second-year pro Randy Gregory was slapped with a four-game suspension. Demarcus Lawrence is also recovering from back surgery. Hardy remained a highly effective pass rusher in 2015, but seemed to be a toxic presence in the locker room as his reputation remained in tatters in the court of public opinion.
Feb 23 - 2:00 PM

105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher reports impending free agent DE Greg Hardy is not expected to re-sign with the Cowboys.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported the same in late January, but the depth chart has changed since then. Randy Gregory's four-game ban has left the Cowboys extremely thin at defensive end, but it appears a reunion with Hardy is still unlikely. Hardy was chronically tardy and clearly a distraction in the locker room last season. He is talented enough to get another shot, but no team is going to invest long-term guaranteed money in a player with Hardy's history.
