The Dallas Cowboys had been fumbling to take home at least a single victory ever since Week 2 when star player Tony Romo went down with a broken left clavicle. It appears, however, that the NFL team could not make it happen as the Dallas Cowboys continue towards Week 8 with a winless record since the second week of the NFL regular season. Apart from Tony Romo, Dez Bryant also incurred injuries this NFL season. Hence, it came as no surprise when the Dallas Cowboys decided to take the necessary steps to provide some semblance of control in its roster. That is, the NFL team reportedly intend to offer an extension to the contract of defensive end Greg Hardy.
"When we initially signed, talked to him, asked him to join the team, it was not only with the idea of the short term but a long-term purview," said Jerry Jones in an interview with 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday via ESPN. The Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager went on to share, "He's, relatively speaking, a young player, and he certainly has the kinds of skills and impact that we want to look to the future with the Cowboys."
The news came following the issue that involved Greg Hardy and the Dallas Cowboys staff, which saw the NFL star practically engage in a physical and verbal altercation with the rest of the team. The incident occurred during the game that recorded yet another loss of the Dallas Cowboys to the New York Giants, a football match that ended with 27-20 defeat for Tony Romo's NFL team. According to sources, Greg Hardy took issue following the 100-yard kick return touchdown courtesy of New York Giants star Dwayne Harris - a move that sealed the defeat of the Dallas Cowboys.
Despite the display of temper from the defensive end, the members of the coaching staff and the teammates of Greg Hardy pointed out that the emotion shown by the NFL athlete stemmed from his passion and desire to win the match against the New York Giants.
"I don't think that's an issue at all," said Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, referring to the incident that the press labeled as yet another outburst from the allegedly violent Greg Hardy, according to Bleacher Report. The coach added, "When that happens, you encourage guys, you get guys excited, you try to get guys ready for the next challenge. I believe from my vantage point that's what he was doing. You have to have passion."
Week 8 of the NFL regular season will see the Dallas Cowboys play against the Seattle Seahawks. Set at 5:25 pm ET on Sunday (November 1), Darren McFadden and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys squad will host Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, Kam Chancellor and the other members of the Seattle Seahawks at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
