Jones Says Cowboys Haven’t Made Decision on Hardy; Need to Upgrade the D-Line

Greg Hardy

Christian Blood of the Dallas Morning News reports on the Cowboys and their situation when it comes to their defensive line with the ongoing combine this week.

One player that everyone is still talking about is Greg Hardy, and if the Cowboys are going to even think about keeping him on the roster.

Blood says that Stephen Jones isn’t sold on dumping Hardy just yet, while others say it’s a slam dunk that he’s gone soon.

Although it appears the Cowboys are unlikely to re-sign unrestricted free agent defensive end Greg Hardy, Executive vice president Stephen Jones said the Cowboys are “still not finalized with where we’re going to come down on that.”

The Cowboys have the fourth overall pick in April’s draft and could use it on a defensive end like Ohio State’s Joey Bosa. There aren’t a lot of big name defensive ends available in this free agency class. Miami’s Olivier Vernon is probably at the top of the list.

Jones said “it’s yet to be determined” if there is enough talent in free agency and the draft to sufficiently upgrade what is arguably the Cowboys’ biggest need.

“We’ve just got to do everything we can,” Jones said. “Obviously we tried hard last year. That will continue to be a focus. At the end of the day, that’s a big part of a successful football team, getting pressure on the passer. We’ve got some good players that can do it. We just need a couple more to go with [DeMarcus] Lawrence and [Tyrone] Crawford and those guys.”
