Greg Hardy Stars In Rap Video Featuring Gunfire Sound Effects

BOSTON (CBS) – On the eve of taking the field for the first time in over a year, Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy finds himself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons – yet again.

Hardy, who plays the Patriots on Sunday following a 4-game suspension for a domestic violence incident involving his girlfriend, came under scrutiny this week for comments he made about Tom Brady's wife Gisele and her sister.

On Saturday, TMZ Sports published a rap video it says was recorded in late 2014 featuring Hardy. The video purportedly shows Hardy rapping that it will be a "cold day in hell before your girl tries to play me."

Hardy was convicted of throwing his girlfriend on a bed covered in assault rifles and threatening to kill her. But the case was overturned in 2015 when the alleged victim did not show up in court to testify.

Gunfire sound effects precede Hardy's verse in the rap song published Saturday. The video also includes marijuana and barely-dressed women.

Sunday against the Patriots marks Hardy's return to the NFL. The former Carolina Panther played in only one game last season before being placed on the exempt/commisioner's exception list for the remainder of the season as his case played out.

Initially NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Hardy for 10 games. But the punishment was reduced to four games by an independent arbitrator.

The Patriots and Cowboys play Sunday at 4:25 p.m. in Arlington, Texas.
