Greg Hardy is deservedly without a job. He’s a good football player but a toxic, immature, crybaby who is an unapologetic piece of pure shit. The list of people willing to take a flyer on Greg Hardy not named Jerry Jones is a pretty short one. In fact, it might be empty. But that didn’t stop someone from linking the Eagles to him on *puts on glasses* Pro Football … Rumors?
PFR’s Dallas Robinson – sure – floated the Falcons, Bills, Lions, Saints, Cowboys (again), Raiders, Bucs, and Eagles as possible landing spots for Greg Hardy. Here’s what he said of the birds’ situation:
The Eagles are transitioning to a 4-3 defense in 2016, and they actually have a sound pair of ends in Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry, a duo that figures to fit much better in an even front than an odd alignment (Connor Barwin, too, is projected to move to end, but there’s disagreement as to whether his conversion will be as smooth). A defensive coordinator like Jim Schwartz always want more pass rushers at his disposal, so Hardy could make some sense. But I have my doubts that owner Jeffrey Lurie and/or de facto general manager Howie Roseman would be willing to add a personality like Hardy.
Asking if the Eagles would want Greg Hardy by framing it as “do the Eagles want more pass rushers” is far from reasonable. Hardy isn’t just another pass rusher. He’s a pathological idiot at best, an abusive piece of trash at worst (and most likely). effrey Lurie wouldn’t touch Greg Hardy with Jerry Jones’ old, wrinkly, weird hands.
