Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett did not refer to defensive end Greg Hardy as a member of the team while addressing reporters on Wednesday.

"Greg Hardy is a free agent,” Garrett responded when asked about Hardy's status with the Cowboys, implying the team had no plans to re-sign him. The controversial Hardy is set to become a free agent in March.

Hardy served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy with a domestic violence incident in 2014. Upon his return, he finished the season with six sacks and 32 quarterback pressures.

Hardy's off-field issues were repeatedly discussed throughout the season. He was also late to several team meetings and was involved in several altercations with other players and coaches throughout the year.
