If the Panthers want to retain the services of Greg Hardy, it's not going to be cheap.
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."
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."

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Two days after the Panthers' season-ending 23-10 playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers, general manager Dave Gettleman was essentially asked if he ever looks at the cap-strapped situation he inherited and wonders what in the world was going on in Carolina before his arrival under the old regime.
The question, in itself, certainly wasn't out of left field...

If only Newton could have been as stealth...
