Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says the team will NOT cut, suspend or even bench Greg Hardy after seeing the brutal pics of his ex-GF from his domestic violence case ... saying, "We have given Greg a second chance."
Jones says the team was obviously aware of the allegations against Hardy before they signed him earlier this year -- but had NOT seen the pictures of the alleged victim until Friday.
"While we did not have access to the photos that became public today, we were and are aware of the serious nature of this incident."
Jones says, "We as an organization take this very seriously. We do not condone domestic violence. We entered into the agreement with Greg fully understanding that there would be scrutiny and criticism."
"We have given Greg a second chance. He is a member of our team and someone who is grateful for the opportunity he has been given to move forward with his life and his career.”
It's worth noting Hardy has made an immediate impact on the Cowboys defense ... emerging as one of the team's best players.
