NFL team signs former Georgia WR Mecole Hardman

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed former Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Mecole Hardman to a one-year deal. After playing for the New York Jets earlier in his NFL career, Hardman made a name for himself by scoring a touchdown in overtime during the Super Bowl.

Hardman was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft by the Chiefs and has played all five of his NFL seasons with the team. Although he had a career-low 15 receptions for 118 receiving yards and no touchdowns last season, his ability to return kickoffs could provide significant value to the team.

With new kickoff rules implemented for the 2024 season, Hardman’s speed and versatility make him set to contribute to the Chiefs’ success on the field. The NFL Network reported on the signing, emphasizing Hardman’s potential impact with these new rules. The original story was first published on UGA Wire.
