The Richmond Roughriders have announced that they have signed former NFL defensive end Greg Hardy. Hardy last played in the NFL in 2015.
Due to multiple incidents involving things such as domestic violence and drugs, among other things, Hardy has not been signed by a team. Richmond signing Hardy is a signing the arena football world has not seen in some time.
He will be a big threat to all opposing quarterbacks. Hardy has shown that he knows how to push right through any offensive lineman he goes up against. The expectation headed into the season can be that he will lead the league in sacks by a wide margin.
Richmond opens their season on March 17 when they travel to Boone, NC to clash against the High Country Grizzlies. Their home opener is on March 31 against the Carolina Energy.
