Panthers could release Greg Hardy for conduct detrimental to the team. Panthers issued a statement after Tuesday night's guilty verdict saying they respect the legal process and don't have a comment right now.
After being found guilty on two counts of assault of a female on Tuesday, the Panthers will now have to make a decision on the future of their team sack leader (15.0) from a season ago. Even if the Panthers do not cut ties with Hardy, a lengthy suspension will likely be headed his way, so the outlook of his 2014 season seems murky at best at this time. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Chad Smith has arrived in camp on Saturday.
Smith was just claimed off waivers from the Tigers on Thursday so he had a couple of days to get his things and head to the A's spring training facility. He's a long shot to make the 25-man roster, but if he can continue to post similar strikeout and walk rates that he did in Double and Triple-A last year, he could get a call-up at some point.
