Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett discussed, albeit very briefly, Greg Hardy's future during his season-ending news conference Monday.
Garrett was asked multiple times about the defensive end, and each time, he gave a short response.
"I thought Greg did some good things for us on the field, defended the run well at times, impacted the quarterback at different times during the game," Garrett said, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.
Garrett declined to discuss Hardy's future or whether he wants him back next season.
"Don't want to get into any personnel decisions right now," he said. "Again, today was about wrapping things up with our team in a team meeting and then trying to speak with everybody individually and we'll do that here over the next couple of days as well. So that's the first order of business."
Hardy finished second on the team with six sacks this season, but fell short of an eight-sack incentive that would have paid him $500,000. He also made several poor off-field decisions that resulted in numerous discussions between himself and Garrett.
Asked whether Hardy seemed to "get it" later in the season, Garrett wasn't very specific.
"I think with all your players what you're trying to do is you're trying to coach them every way that you can," he said. "Try to coach them on the field. You try to coach them off the field. You try to be a positive influence. You try to create the right environment for them to be their best. Hopefully some of those things that we've done with all members of our football team have had a positive impact on him."
