Dez Bryant hopes Cowboys bring back Greg Hardy

BY foxsports • February 1, 2016

Last week, reports began to circulate that the Dallas Cowboys would not re-sign defensive end Greg Hardy after a less than spectacular season was topped off with talk that Hardy partied too much during the season.

But if you ask Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, he wants the Cowboys to bring back the controversial end for another season.

"You see guys perform at a high level around him, and that's what he brings to the defense," Bryant told The Sporting News. "I know I would love to see Greg back with us. He's a great teammate. I love him. I hope we can get him back."

Hardy is a free agent after playing just one season with the Cowboys.  He missed the first four games of the season due to suspension and recorded only 6 sacks over the 12 final games of the season.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported last week that sources close to Hardy told him that they do not believe the Cowboys plan to bring him back, citing that the team thought he partied too much during the season and was not in shape.
