Greg Hardy will return to the field on Sunday against the New England Patriots. The defensive end, who missed most of last year and served a four-game suspension this fall due to a domestic violence incident, spoke publicly yesterday for the first time as a Cowboy.
Hardy hopes to come out “guns blazing” in his first meaningful game in 14 months. He also expressed excitement about playing for one of the premier franchises in the NFL and wants to have a long stint in Dallas.
He expressed no remorse and said his only regret was not being there for his teammates.
Then, inexplicably, he provided Tom Brady with added motivation by bringing Gisele Bundchen into the conversation.
When Hardy was asked if he intended to speak out against domestic violence or involve himself with a local shelter, he talked about sticking to the game plan and not doing anything different. He’s excited his return is against the World Champion Patriots.
“I love seeing Tom Brady, he’s cool as crap,” Hardy said. “Have you seen his wife? I hope she comes to the game. I hope her sister comes to the game, all her friends come to the game. One of my favorite games of the year, guys.”
A reporter mentioned that he was sure the wife of Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles was attractive as well.
“Is she?” Hardy asked. “This kind of information is important. That’s how I select my Pro Bowls.”
Perhaps Hardy is just a fan of reasonably priced coffee table literature but it’s probably not the best idea to start head games with Brady. The guy has a mind like a steel trap. Good look getting in there.
Also, someone needs to cut the print version of this article out of a newspaper and send it to Blake Bortles. This may be the only time his name is mentioned in the same breath as Brady’s.
