Just a month after agreeing to a one-year deal with defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove, the Dallas Cowboys released the veteran on Thursday.
Never a stranger to controversy, Hargrove was attempting to make a comeback of sorts with Dallas. He was out of football entirely in 2012, in part because he was one of the players suspended by the league for the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.
Four years previous, Hargrove missed the entire 2008 season for his third violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. He last played an NFL game back in 2011, as a member of the Seattle Seahawks.
According to the account in the Dallas Morning News, the former third round pick struggled with his conditioning throughout his short time with the Cowboys.
