NFL Notes: Greg Hardy, Mexico City, Broncos, & Eagles

Greg Hardy

Albert Breer of NFL Media reports that following Greg Hardy‘s recent social media incident in which he changed his Twitter bio to read he’s “innocent until proven guilty,” he met with Cowboys HC Jason Garrett.

After the meeting Hardy wound up missing the team’s Thursday morning meeting. According to Breer, Hardy told others in the organization he was humiliated after messing up again, apprehensive about facing his teammates in the aftermath and needed the extra time to “get his mind right.

According to Breer, Hardy sat down with Cowboys DL Jeremy Mincey to discuss the situation.

Mexico City

According to Albert Breer, the NFL has made steady progress in Mexico City towards hosting a game in 2016.

The NFL is expected to send a contingent down there next week to further review Azteca Stadium for a second time.

Sources tell Breer that the NFL is “continuing to look for solutions” that will allow them to play a game in Mexico City next year. .

  • Kubiak told Manning on Monday that he was excused from practice, meetings, and their upcoming game so he could concentrate on his rehab. (Mike Klis)
  • Manning told Brock Osweiler on Monday: “Go win this game for us. If you need anything I’m here for you.” (Mike Klis)
  • The Broncos list WR Emmanuel Sanders as questionable for Sunday’s game.

Eagles

Albert Breer writes that it’s fair to wonder if the Eagles might be better off with Mark Sanchez in place as their starting quarterback rather than Sam Bradford.

Sanchez’s mobility if the obvious differentiating factor between the two quarterbacks.

If they just use the zone-read and run the ball, yes,” an NFC executive tells Breer. “Otherwise, he’ll throw the ball to the other team in crucial situations.

Another positive for Sanchez if the fact that he’s been in the system for over a year now.

I think having been in the system last year, [Sanchez] has a good understanding of it — that’s a positive,” explained an NFC defensive coordinator. “And from an athleticism standpoint, the ability to run adds another dimension to that offense.”
