The Carolina Panthers will not re-sign their defensive end who is facing domestic violence accusations…
Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy sat out for most of the 2014 season due to domestic violence allegations involving himself and his girlfriend.
DeAngelo Williams released – Carolina Panthers release running back after nine seasons
Cam Newton – Panthers quarterback planning to let market reset before signing new deal
Thomas DeCoud released – Panthers release safety after one season
Hardy is set to become a free agent in March as the Panthers did not set up a contract extension for him due to his off-field problems.
The Panthers defense was also able to regain its 2013 form late in the season on its way to winning the NFC South.
Reports are coming out that the Panthers will let Hardy walk in free agency, and he will likely still command a lot of money due to getting 15 sacks in 2013.
However, his value will be reduced due to his character concerns.
Pro Football Talk reported on Hardy’s fate with the Panthers on Twitter.
