Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy must celebrating tonight because he will be putting six additional paychecks of $578,125 per game in his pocket. He got his 10-game suspension for the 2015 season reduced to four games. Arbitrator Harold Henderson upheld the suspension which was issued by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, but he reduced it substantially.
This all started because of a domestic violence charge against Hardy, who was originally convicted of attacking his ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder in a bench trial. After the verdict he decided to exercise his right to a jury trial and the charges were dismissed because Holder never showed up.
Regardless of the ruling Hardy’s character is definitely questionable, but his ability to get to the quarterback isn’t. He will likely be a major addition to the Cowboys defense by coming off the corner and getting to the quarterback.
“We are looking forward to the start of the season and having Greg be a part of the team,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said.
