Jason Garrett doesn’t have much to say about Greg Hardy

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones might not be ready to close the door on bringing back free agent defensive end Greg Hardy.

But Cowboys coach Jason Garrett doesn’t sound like a man looking to extend the relationship.

Asked Wednesday afternoon about Hardy’s status, Garrett replied: “Greg Hardy’s a free agent.”

That’s all.

It’s one thing for the organization to take chances on players such as Hardy, who had 6.0 sacks in 12 games but just 1.5 from Thanksgiving to the end of the season. But Garrett was the one out front explaining away all the small distractions Hardy created for himself throughout the year, in addition to the big one he walked in with.

So a little frost from the head coach is probably understandable, and likely¬†a sign of the team’s ultimate direction with a player who was more trouble than he was worth last year.

    It’s obvious Jason Garrett does not want Hardy back. And for the sake of the Cowboys, it’s probably best he doesn’t come back.
    But, as we all know, Jerry Jones is the one running the show, and I think he wants otherwise.

    Since when does Jason garrett have a say in anything?

    Let’s see, his production was poor, his locker room presence diseased, his media interaction was a pure distraction.
    So you’re saying the head coach has seen and heard enough? I would think so!

    GM Jerry doesn’t care how much of a problem he is because it’s not his problem–it’s Garrett’s. Jerry can just bury his head in the sand and talk about how great a leader he is while Rome is burning.

    Garrett has already cut ties with Hardy. But since Garrett has no authority, he has to wait and see if he did a good enough job convincing Jerry not to bring him back. And since Jerry runs the show, remember from socks to jocks, just anticipate on Hardy suiting up next Fall and missing more team meetings. What a great organization.

    LOL the sock puppet thinks he gets a vote?! What a riot! Jerrah won’t be deterred from making sure no move remains unmade to insure the Cowboys are mired in mediocrity or worse as they have been for the last 20 years. Keeping Hardy is the next logical step in that effort.

    I have something to say about greg hardy: greg hardy is a low character loser

    It’s hard for a sock puppet head coach to say much without the GM/owner’s hand in the sock

    Neither Garrett nor Jones (either one) has done anything to deserve the jobs they have, i.e., “coach” and GM. But since Jerrud owns the team he isn’t going anywhere, and since he “likes” Garrett the fact that the guy hasn’t won anything in Dallas worth discussing is irrelevant. Jerrud likes him so it doesn’t matter if the guy can’t win games. He has plenty of job security. Laughable…. I almost feel sorry for Cowboy fans… almost. Ha.

    Sorry but even Helen Keller would tell you that Jason Garrett can’t speak until told what to say.

  11. wedemboyz88 says: Feb 24, 2016 6:32 PM

    Good answer Jason. He’s more involved than y’all think.

  12. bigbluefan1 says: Feb 24, 2016 6:41 PM

    The right answer should have been let me ask Jerry and I will get back to you on that

  13. nflrule says: Feb 24, 2016 7:20 PM

    Not sure who I want to see less…Garrett or Hardy.

  14. bigbenh8tr says: Feb 24, 2016 7:47 PM

    Jerry Jones does the talking (answering questions the media asks him), but Stephen Jones runs the personnel department.

    why all the hate in every direction when it comes to the Cowboys

  16. jerruhjones says: Feb 24, 2016 8:39 PM

    Jerruh didn’t tell him what to say yet.

  17. YouCryin?PatsMustBeDoingTheirJob says: Feb 24, 2016 8:40 PM

    He can’t speak without Jerry’s hand up his rear end.

  18. mitybuc says: Feb 24, 2016 8:43 PM

    Perfect time for Cowboys to cut him & save face considering his production

    Seems just like yesterday Cowboy Nation had the Boys winning SB 50. Good times!

    That’s easy. They earned it.

    Greg Hardy is another one of those inflicted with Millennial Affluenza & Arrogance Syndrome. Unfortunately, the fact that this is a rare and emerging disease, interests Jerry Jones only because it’s rare. Jerry believes that’s a good thing. So I wouldn’t look for Hardy to be going anywhere too soon.

    Hardy is all about Hardy. I want to win and I want to see players on my team that want “give it up” for the team. This means practice harder, focus on being in shape/healthy, being a leader, helping teammates, etc… Hardy just does not fit the bill.
