Report: Greg Hardy could appeal suspension in light of Brady ruling
Thursday September 3rd, 2015

Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy is considering challenging his four-game suspension from the NFL in court following Thursday’s ruling from federal judge Richard Berman nullifying Tom Brady’s Deflategate punishment, reports ESPN’s Ed Werder.

Hardy was originally suspended 10 games by the league after he was found guilty of misdemeanor domestic violence charges. After an appeal, his suspension was lowered to four games as the crime occurred before the league’s new domestic abuse policy was instituted.

The charges against Hardy were dismissed after his accuser could not be located to testify during his appeal of the initial conviction.

Under his current suspension, Hardy’s first game with the Cowboys will be against the New England Patriots on Oct. 11. 

Hardy signed a one-year contract with Dallas this offseason worth up to $13 million, after missing all but one game last season after being placed on the commissioner’s exempt list while he was awaiting trial.
