Panthers could let Greg Hardy leave


The Kraken from Hogwarts could leave Carolina.

Greg Hardy could leave the Panthers in free agency according to general manager Dave Gettleman in an interview with the Charlotte Observer.

Asked about signing Hardy or slapping him with the franchise tag, Gettleman said the defensive lineman could leave the team.

“Everybody lets players go. There isn’t a team in this league that hasn’t let a big dog walk out the door. And don’t print that I’m saying that he’s going to go,” Gettleman said. “I’m just making a statement. There isn’t anybody that hasn’t done that. It’s a whole big puzzle we’re putting together and he’s one of the pieces.”

Over the last two seasons Hardy has racked up 26 sacks and been a run stopper. If the Panthers allow him to walk there will be no shortage of teams interested in the 25-year-old.
