CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Mecklenburg County District Attorney's office has announced that Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy's jury trial has been set for Feb. 9 in Superior Court. Hardy is appealing his conviction on two counts of domestic violence last July. The case is being prosecuted by the DA's domestic violence team. Hardy was a Pro Bowl player for the Panthers in 2013 after tying a team record with 15 sacks. He was signed as Carolina's franchise player and made $13.1 million despite playing in just one game in 2014. He spent the majority of the season on the commissioner's exempt list. The 26-year-old Hardy will become an unrestricted free agent in March, and some teammates have already said they want the Panthers to re-sign him. --- AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL
