The Dallas Cowboys vice-president Stephen Jones was a guest today on Pro Football Talk Live and during his interview he fielded a number of questions including one about a potential return to the line up for Greg Hardy.
Jones' however appeared to quickly shut the door on that possibility, seemingly indicating the Cowboys were not happy with the gamble they took on Hardy last season.
“I don’t see that happening. We certainly had that experiment, and unfortunately it didn’t work out,” Jones said as per Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith. “We’ve moved on and we think we’ve got some good football players on our defensive line that should only get better. They’re young. I’m certainly not naive, I know we don’t have proven production on that defensive line as we sit here today, but I do think we have some good athletes that are only going to get better.”
Jones did not however rule out the possibly of adding another veteran to round out the Cowboys defense, but presumably it won't be one who brings the ugly baggage that Hardy does.
“We’ll certainly keep our eyes peeled to see if there’s anyone else who makes sense to add to that group,” Jones said.
