The Cowboys are taking some national heat on signing defensive end Greg Hardy, who had domestic abuse charges earlier this year.

While the acts of Hardy were disgusting, the NFL conduct policy still allows this signing to happen.

It will be interesting to see what the NFL decides to do in the length of the suspension to Hardy. They could suspend him for any where from two to six days, depending on whether or not they comply with the most recent conduct policy or the one of the past that would have brought a pair of games.

Hardy's salary of $13.1 million is a lot but as Mike Fisher of 105.3 The FAN in Dallas explains above, Dallas is protecting themselves if the signing of Hardy does not work out.
