The Greg Hardy era is over in Carolina according to various reports.
Greg Hardy is scheduled to become a free agent on March 10, and even though the charges were dropped on appeal, the Panthers have no intention of bringing Hardy back according to BlackandBlueReview.com’s Bill Voth.
After his domestic violence case was dismissed earlier this month, a number of Hardy’s teammates went to bat for him, asking owner Jerry Richardson to give him another chance. According to multiple league sources, some momentum did build for a Hardy return in the days after his legal situation was cleared up. But, sources say, that slim possibility quickly cooled and eventually ended last week.
With Hardy facing a possible suspension from the NFL, and with Richardson’s difficulty in getting past the situation Hardy put himself and the Panthers in, the team will watch him go elsewhere in 2015.
