Greg Hardy: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Hardy was found guilty of assaulting a female and communicating threats on Tuesday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Hardy pleaded not guilty to charges of communicating threats and assaulting a female in court Tuesday morning, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hardy was arrested in May after his ex-girlfriend accused him of throwing her to the floor, strangling her, slamming her on a futon covered with guns, and threatening to shoot her. Since the alleged incident, the woman in question has failed to attend both a protective order request hearing, as well as Tuesday's bench trial. Nonetheless, if Hardy is found guilty of both misdemeanor charges, he would have the right to appeal for a jury trial. If he's ultimately convicted, Hardy could face up to 60 days in jail.
Hardy's trial on two misdemeanor charges, including assault on a female and communicating threats, has been scheduled for July 15, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Following his arrest Tuesday on misdemeanor charges of assault on a female and communicating threats, Hardy was released from jail on $17,000 bond Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.

"We are very disappointed to learn of the allegations involving Greg and are concerned for all parties as we continue to investigate," the Panthers indicated in a statement Tuesday. Hardy is coming off a 2013 season in which he recorded 59 tackles and tied a Panthers' franchise record with 15 sacks.
Hardy was arrested Tuesday on a charge of suspicion of domestic violence involving his girlfriend, ESPN reports.

Hardy received a $1.3 million advance on his 2014 salary for participating in last week's offseason workouts, ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hardy's payday was inserted in his $13.1 million franchise tag contract to ensure the Pro Bowler is present for all of the Panthers' offseason workouts, which began last week. In addition to Carolina wanting to keep Hardy, the team could reduce his cap figure for this season if a long-term deal is reached before July 15. In any event, the 25-year-old defensive end will be handsomely rewarded for his 26 sacks over the past two seasons, including a franchise-tying 15 during the 2013 campaign.

2014

2013

While Charles Johnson is better paid and better known, it's Hardy who looks like the top IDP option among Carolina defensive ends. Hardy came alive in 2012 despite starting only 10 games, finishing with 61 tackles and 11 sacks. Even after his emergence, Hardy should still see favorable blocking scenarios since Johnson will likely remain the primary concern of offensive lines. The addition of the highly talented rookie defensive tackle duo of Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short will be useful for Hardy, as well. Hardy is a former underachiever who fell to the sixth round of the 2010 draft despite clearly possessing first-round talent, so that could make him a bit of a risk, but you'll notice that pretty much every candidate after the top six has a red flag of some sort, be it low tackle totals, injury issues or scheme change. Hardy's upside makes him worth the gamble.

2012

Hardy will start at defensive end, although the Panthers will need him to pick up his production from last season. He had three sacks in the first five weeks of the 2011 season but recorded only one thereafter.

2011

Hardy was involved in a motorcycle accident during the offseason and is trying to regain his form to get back into football shape. New head coach Ron Rivera has stated that Hardy will start opposite Charles Johnson, if he's healthy, but his 2011 season hinges on how quickly he can get that way.

2010

Rookie defensive end has a lot of upside but has been dogged by negative criticism for a perceived bad attitude and work ethic.
