The Dallas Cowboys loss a big part of their team this week when running back DeMarco Murray decided to join the Philadelphia Eagles. Now with a key player gone, what should the team do to help build their roster without DeMarco? Starting safety Barry Church believes adding to the defense will help the team and he hopes the Cowboys sign Greg Hardy regardless to his troubled past.
“He could make not only my job a lot easier, but everybody on the back end’s job a lot easier. When you have a guy like that who can pressure the quarterback and consistently get back there and make the quarterback throw errant passes and tips and overthrows, that’s what we love back there in the secondary.”
“It’ll definitely give us an opportunity to cover the receivers a lot less time than what we had to last year.”
Hardy had 15 sacks for the Carolina Panthers in 2013, but spent most of 2014 season on the players exempt list after being convicted of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend. Hardy’s charges were later dismissed during an appeal in February after his accuser failed to show up for the hearing.
At least six teams have reportedly shown interest in Hardy but it is unclear is the Cowboys are one of them.
