    The kind of player a team can build a pass rush around, if he were spending more time on the football field and less in the courts fighting domestic abuse charges. Greg Hardy's current team, the Carolina Panthers, isn't expected to make him an offer. If the Minnesota Vikings wouldn't support him after he was charged with beating his son, Adrian Peterson can probably find a team that will. As NFL teams turn to free agency on March 10, there is more to consider this year than 40-yard dash times and vertical jumps.
