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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    why all the hate in every direction when it comes to the Cowboys
    =================================
    That’s easy. They earned it.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
