Hasn't cost the franchise anything. 10 games without pay. Nothings really changed. Draft a DE, hope lawrence produces in those 10 games and then have Hardy join him in the run in.

A valid point really I suppose. Just means we pay him $5m for 6 games, instead of $13m for 16.

We didn't have Lawrence for a similar period of time last year and coped ok.

For me though it's more a case of not liking the signing in the first place, regardless of talent, and now he is of no use for the first 10 games too.

He probably doesn't take up a roster spot, so in that sense there is no harm.

Still, I'd sooner win the 'right way', whereas with Hardy on board there will always be the 'yes, but you had to sign Hardy'.

Well, it's done now. On to brighter and better things in the draft.

(Watch us go and draft a guy with an alleged domestic violence incident in his past too - Frank Clark, DE, Michigan)

Not a domestic violence incident but red flag all the same in Gregory. You know the cowboys to well

It was heard on the 28th May - so you'd expect 2 weeks on a verdict can't be far off. The NFL will probably wait for a 'quiet week' to release the verdict, that way it keeps the NFL at the top of the news cycle.

I think it'll get reduced by 2 games when it's all said and done. If they want to be serious when it comes to domestic violence then they can't really reduce it much more, if at all.

They aren't connected obviously, but it will also have a knock on effect for the Brady appeal. The Commish handed down punishment in both cases (I think), so if he's willing amend one punishment, he'll probably be forced to amend the other.

With a lot of mini camps winding up this week a verdict surely has to come by early next week...........surely?

It doesn't matter whether we get a verdict now or in 3 weeks I suppose, but it would be nice to know where the Cowboys/Hardy stand sooner rather than later.

Well, there you go. 4 game suspension. Looks like he'll be having a bigger impact on our season than I expected.
