Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy facing misdemeanor charges

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy us facing misdemeanor charges of communicating threats and assault on a female, according to warrants files Tuesday by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police.

Hardy tied the Panthers franchise record for sacks last season and was given the franchise tag for the year. The team would love to lock him in for a long-term deal, but the franchise tag will have to keep him around for a season.

It will be interesting to see how this whole thing turns out and how it will affect his contract status. I am sure that the team will still be looking to lock him in for a while.

The team did issue a statement:

“We are very disappointed to learn of the allegations involving Greg and are concerned for all parties as we continue to investigate,” the Panthers said in a statement. – Charlotte Observer

We will have to see what happens with these allegations. The investigation is still incomplete, so we can’t rush to our judgements on him and the situation.
