Jaguars GM doing ‘homework’ by working out Greg Hardy

Jacksonville, Fla. — Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell says he was doing his “homework” on Greg Hardy when he brought in the polarizing defensive end for a two-day workout and interview session last week.

Caldwell says he has “no imminent plans” to sign Hardy, a free agent who spent last season in Dallas. He adds that the Jaguars are “going to turn over every rock, but not at any price.”

Hardy had a tumultuous season with the Cowboys, one that started with a four-game suspension related to his domestic violence case in North Carolina. It also was marked by several disruptions that included a physical confrontation with an assistant coach.

Caldwell says the workout and interview were a chance to learn “the facts” and the “the truth behind everything that surrounds him and just do our homework.”
