Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy says that he is not stressing over contract talks.

Greg Hardy has said that he is not "stressing" over impending contract talks with the Carolina Panthers.

The defensive end is due to become a free agent next month, but general manager Dave Gettleman has not guaranteed the 25-year-old a new deal with the NFC South champions.

Hardy told NFL Network: "It's a football game. It's a game, so you really can't put too much stock in stressing about something like that.

"I'm in the best position of my life regardless of what happens, so I definitely believe in letting my agent and my manager and my people handle that and I can focus on football and entertaining you guys.

"Give me a phone call and offer me a crapload of money. That's all. Nothing too serious."

Hardy tied the Panthers' single-season sacks record in 2013 with 15.
