Greg Hardy's agent: Hardy will land a 'strong multiyear deal'
Friday March 13th, 2015

Greg Hardy's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Hardy has drawn interest from several teams and begun negotiations with one of them.

Rosenhaus thinks a team will sign Hardy to a "strong multiyear deal," according to Schefter.

As an unrestricted free agent, Hardy is free to sign with any team even though he is on the commissioner's exempt list. He was found guilty last July on misdemeanor domestic violence charges.

After playing in one game this season, the Panthers placed him on the list. Hardy still made $13.1 million last season after the team placed the franchise tag on him.

"It's a very positive situation," Rosenhaus said, according to Schefter. "While we're waiting to hear from the league, we're working through it, and it has been very encouraging."

Hardy was set to stand trial in February after appealing the conviction, but the charges were dismissed after his accuser reportedly could not be located by prosecutors.

Hardy reportedly reached a financial settlement with the accuser.

Hardy is reportedly seeking immediate reinstatement to the league and met with league officials in New York earlier this month.

In 2013, the 26-year-old Hardy recorded 65 tackles and 15 sacks and was invited to the Pro Bowl.
