Jets sign Mecole Hardman to ‘up to $6.5m one-year deal’ as Wideout leaves Chiefs
Jets sign Mecole Hardman to “up to $6.5 million, one-year deal” as wideout leaves Chiefs after winning second Super Bowl in Kansas City
The Jets added another pass catcher to an already talented receiving corps, signing Mecole Hardman on a one-year deal.
The contract is valued at up to $6.5 million NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Hardman played the first four years of his career with the Chiefs and won his second Super Bowl in February when Kansas City defeated the Eagles 38-25.
Hardman did not play in this game.
However, the 2019 second-round pick was productive for the Chiefs, totaling 2,088 yards and 16 touchdowns, including a career-best 693 yards in 2021.

Hardman only played eight regular-season games for the Chiefs last season as he struggled with injuries.
The signing comes after the Jets agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal to sign ex-Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard — potentially to reunite him with fellow quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
And the Jets’ receiving corps wasn’t in bad shape before either.
Garrett Wilson rushed for 1,103 yards and four touchdowns in a great rookie season while Corey Davis caught 32 balls for 536 yards.
Hardman could soon join Rodgers in New York — as the Packers quarterback recently expressed his desire to play for the Jets on The Pat McAfee Show.
The two teams have yet to agree on terms, however, as ProFootballTalk reports that Green Bay has struggled in negotiations, demanding a “first-round pick and beyond” from the Jets for the 39-year-old.
