Greg Hardy

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Defensive end Greg Hardy got $48,000 from the Panthers playoff win as he currently awaits a jury trial on domestic violence charges.

WCNC reported that Hardy remains on the league’s commissioner’s exempt list, which means he still collects a paycheck.

And if the Panthers win their next game in either Green Bay or Seattle, Hardy will get another $48,000.

Back in July, a Mecklenburg County judge found Hardy guilty of assault and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend.

Hardy appealed the judge’s decision and is now awaiting a jury trial.

Hardy elected to join the Commissioner’s Exempt List, which means he can’t practice or play until his domestic violence case is resolved. He will continue to collect his $13 million salary.

Authorities said Hardy choked his then-girlfriend in May, threw her around, dragged her by her hair and threatened to kill her.
