The Kansas City Chiefs are adding a familiar face to their roster following a trade with the New York Jets Wednesday afternoon. The Chiefs wide receiver play has been subpar to start the season. They are getting a player that should help Patrick Mahomes run the offense more smoothly for the rest of the season.

The Chiefs drafted Hardman in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors for the 2019 season. Hardman won the Super Bowl twice with the Chiefs. He recorded 2,088 yards receiving and 16 touchdown receptions during his four seasons in Kansas City.
Hardman signed with the Jets this offseason. He’s appeared in five games for the Jets but has only been targeted three times. Hardman caught one pass for six yards this season. He’ll likely have a much bigger role on the Chiefs.
