The Greg Hardy saga was not worth the headache for the Dallas Cowboys, but now it seems their main rival might be a frontrunner for his services.

The former Cowboys and Panthers defensive end has yet to find a team to sign with following the backlash he received for his involvement in a domestic violence case two years ago. However that has not stopped some from speculating if a team could take a chance on him.

Pro Football Rumors listed the Eagles among the teams who could be in the running for Hardy's services.

The Eagles are transitioning to a 4-3 defense in 2016, and they actually have a sound pair of ends in Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry, a duo that figures to fit much better in an even front than an odd alignment (Connor Barwin too, is projected to move to end, but there’s disagreement as to whether his conversion will be as smooth). A defensive coordinator like Jim Schwartz always want more pass rushers at his disposal, so Hardy could make some sense. But I have my doubts that owner Jeffrey Lurie and/or de facto general manager Howie Roseman would be willing to add a personality like Hardy.

While Hardy does possess a very sought after skill-set, his actions both on and off of the field have made him a leper among NFL teams this offseason, so it does remain a longshot that he signs anywhere.
