Greg Hardy will meet with NFL officials on Wednesday to discuss his domestic violence case and possible reinstatement.
Hardy is set to become an unrestricted free agent on March 10 and has been on the commissioner's exempt list since mid-September.
He remained on the list after a Mecklenburg County judge dropped his domestic violence charges on Feb. 9 because accuser Nicole Holder refused to cooperate with the district attorney's office after reaching a financial settlement with Hardy.
Previously, the suspension for a first offense was two games. Hardy was arrested on May 13 and found guilty of assaulting and threatening Holder on July 15 by a Mecklenburg County judge.
That verdict was set aside when Hardy appealed and asked for a jury trial, which never occurred because the charges were dropped.
The Carolina Panthers are not expected to re-sign Hardy.
