Jerry Jones says Greg Hardy “paid a terrific price”


Jerry Jones does not believe Greg Hardy got off scot-free when a domestic violence charge against him was dropped.

Jones, who signed Hardy to play for the Cowboys, said on PFT Live that Hardy has lost millions of dollars because the Cowboys will be paying him a lot less money this season than Hardy would have made if not for the domestic violence case.

“He’s paid a terrific price,” Jones said. “Had he not had this incident his contract would be one like Ndamukong Suh, possibly, but he doesn’t have that. So he’s got more to come because the league is going to rule on if he has suspensions this year. All of that is all incorporated in that agreement and the bottom line is we hope and feel that he won’t do that, go down this road again.”

Hardy may still be suspended by the NFL, and Jones said the Cowboys have received no assurances about when Hardy will be eligible to play for them.

“No, that’s a part of the risk that we took to sign him and deal with whatever comes,” Jones said.
