Greg Hardy visits Jaguars and has work out this week

The Jacksonville Jaguars met with free agent Greg Hardy, one of the least popular names in NFL history, on Wednesday and Thursday.

Free agent defensive end Greg Hardy spent 2015 with the Dallas Cowboys, but was suspended during the first four games of the season due to "conduct detrimental to the league." This suspension was the result of a two-month NFL investigation into a 2014 domestic violence incident where Hardy was arrested on charges of threatening and assaulting a female.

Dallas let Hardy walk five months ago. He has been a free agent ever since.

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the meeting between Hardy and the Jaguars "went fine" but Adam Schefter said the Jaguars reportedly "do not plan to sign" Hardy.

I wouldn't expect the Jaguars to make a move on Hardy any time soon. It's likely that the Jaguars are considering adding Hardy to a shortlist of defensive ends, and the recent workout was just a check-up, of sorts. Hardy's name could come up again if the Jaguars find themselves in trouble at the defensive end position during the season.

Greg Hardy had six sacks as a Cowboy in 2015.
