Jason Garrett warned Greg Hardy about conduct following inappropriate comments

Greg Hardy has wasted little time making headlines as he prepares to play his first game in over a year - a domestic violence case saw him on the Commissioner's Exempt list in 2014 and suspended for the first four weeks of 2015.


Unfortunately for his new employers the Dallas Cowboys, those headlines include the defensive end using inappropriate gun references, and unnecessary comments on Tom Brady's female family members.

Considering Hardy's recent history, the former Pro Bowler's remarks were, at best, extremely foolish. At worst, they were a further sign to many that he has learnt nothing from his time away. And it looks like Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has had to intervene to warn Hardy over his future conduct.

As reported by Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Garrett has had to lay down the law to the returning defensive talent:

"That's not how we want to operate as an organization, players and coaches in our organization understand that," said Garrett after revealing he had a brief one-on-one discussion with Hardy following Wednesday's press conference.

"We want to distinguish ourselves with our play, not with what we say. We define ourselves by what we do, not by what we say. Greg understands that now and that's how we're going forward."


Garrett claimed Hardy had been "receptive" to his advice, but it is fair to say there are many who believe the former Panthers star will never change.

Katie Nolan of garbage time perhaps sums up the current mood best:
