It appears the Cowboys might finally be done with Greg Hardy

The Cowboys' decision to add Greg Hardy last season was controversial to say the least.

Hardy was convicted on domestic violence charges -- stemming from an incident with his girlfriend -- in a bench trial in North Carolina. The case was dismissed because Hardy's girlfriend did not cooperate. He initially suspended 10 games but that was reduced to four.

Hardy, who signed a one-year, incentive-laden deal with Dallas in March, played in 12 games last season, totaling six sacks. But it appears his time with the Cowboys is about up.

When asked about Hardy, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones told the Dallas Morning News on Sunday that "he's a free agent ... a free agent we haven't had discussions with, if you want to say that."

The Cowboys having no discussions with Hardy this late into free agency does not bode well for him possibly returning to Dallas. It'll be curious to see if any team signs Hardy, considering his previous transgressions.
