Cowboys sign Hardy (http://espn.go.com/nfl/columns/pasquarelli_len/1368453.html)

The Cowboys announced the signing of All-Pro LB Kevin Hardy, formerly of the Jax Jaguars, to a 1 year deal. This is a huge signing for the Cowboys IMO and should bolster the Boys defensive backfield. At only 1-2 million bucks, this is a steal. Nice to see teh Cowboys stepping it up in the FA market yet again. The Boys are once again a playoff contender.

Outstanding addition for the Boys. The guy was all-world a couple of years ago but became yet another salary cap casuality. If healthy he upgrades the defense significantly.

MFFL- I agree. Isn't it amazing that the NFL has guys like Hardy that made multi-millions and then became salary cap casualties and have to "settle" for 1-2 million per year contracts. I'm glad Hardy will be wearing the Star. He will be a huge addition when we look back on it at the end of next season.

if the boys have a solid draft (very big if), i believe this will become a very, very successful off season

i've been following the hardy situation for awhile, but until a couple of weeks ago, i had no idea that he would end up here

murph - he is a steal...a friggin steal! He played banged up the last year or two and is healthy now. Total steal.

Dat is a third down type linebacker and a special teams guy. His niche will be in that kind of role.

that is a possibility
