Panthers' Greg Hardy hasn't heard from NFL since conviction

Tuesday August 26th, 2014

Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy said he hasn't heard from the NFL since he was convicted of domestic violence in July, the Charlotte Observer's Joseph Person reports.

Hardy was convicted of assaulting and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder. He is appealing the ruling and will have a jury trial, which is currently scheduled for November. It is the NFL's policy to wait until after the legal system runs its course before handing out punishment.

“I haven’t heard anything from anybody,” Hardy said.

Because of a bruised left shoulder, Hardy did not practice on Monday. The Panthers used the franchise tag on Hardy during the offseason, and he will earn $13.1 million this season.

The 26-year-old finished last season with 15 sacks en route to a second-team All-Pro selection.
