The soon-to-be free agent defensive end told NFL.com’s Dan Hanzus that he’s waiting for Carolina to offer him a “crapload of money.”
Greg Hardy on how Panthers can take next step: "Give me a phone call and offer me a crapload of money. That's all. Nothing too serious."

Earlier on Friday, it was reported that Hardy and the Panthers had not yet begun contract negotiations.
“They are still working on their cap situation as I understand,” Hardy told the Charlotte Observer. “We’re playing the waiting game right now…. If they can afford me, man, I’d love to be there. That’s my team. My family. We got a good thing going right now.”
Hardy may come off a tad egregious, but his resume speaks for itself. A stalwart on the team’s defensive line, he’s racked up 120 tackles, 26 sacks, and a Pro Bowl appearance over the last two seasons.
Still only 25-years-old, the “Kraken” would draw a considerable amount of interest if unleashed on the open market. Expect him to get his monetary wish fulfilled one way or another.
