Jerry Jones Responds to Greg Hardy’s ‘Guns Blazing’ Comment
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was a little taken aback Wednesday when informed of linebacker Greg Hardy‘s curious choice of words to describe his return from a four-game suspension stemming from a domestic violence charge.
“I hope I come out guns blazing,” Hardy told reporters Tuesday.
It was an odd statement to make, considering that automatic weapons were part of the alleged assault that occurred in May 2014 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“Oh my goodness,” Jones told SI.com when informed of Hardy’s remarks.
Jones, who is attending the NFL owners meetings in New York, then paused before continuing.
“Well, you’re not allowed to have guns on the football field,” Jones, who turns 72 next week, told SI.com. “We all know that’s just a way of expressing yourself. I hope his guns are ablazin’.”
