Earlier is the week, Mike Florio reported that Drew Rosenhaus, Greg Hardy's agent, had sent information regarding Hardy's efforts to change off the field and become a different person to several teams.
He has reportedly taken part in group counseling, as well as several other similar programs, with topics including anger management, temper management, domestic violence, and ADHD.
The idea was for Hardy to continue treatment and eventually land a shot with another NFL team, but it appears that all hope may be lost for the talented pass rusher.
Following news of his agent's efforts, Ed Werder talked to several execs who said that, while they applaud Rosenhaus’ efforts, “nobody wants him.”
One General Manager says that ownership would be involved and believes there’s a chance someone may have interest, but added: “Many will probably steer clear to err on the safe side.”
Another said that Hardy is going to be a “hard sell“, as many believe that Hardy's efforts to become a changed man are not sincere, but rather just an attempt to land a spot on an NFL roster.
“Going to be a very hard sell moving forward,” Werder was told. “There’s too much of an allusion towards cleaning up for sake of sale.”
The last source said, “He’s still toxic, and obviously desperate and saying the right things.’‘
There's no doubting Hardy's talent. He's an elite pass rusher, and has the ability to change a game. But he's also a scumbag, one who refuses to control his anger. Hardy has been given extra chances his entire career, but it appears that things have finally caught up with him, and we might just see the end of Greg Hardy as a professional football player.
