The Kansas City Chiefs acquired Mecole Hardman in a trade with the New York Jets, reuniting him with Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes after his departure in the offseason. Hardman's addition should be good news for a disappointing Kansas City WR room, even if Hardman didn't do much with the Jets.

On Monday, Jets head coach Robert Saleh opened up on what led to the Hardman trade, mentioning that the play of Xavier Gipson had a lot to do with it. Well, Hardman didn't take too kindly to those comments and dropped a cryptic post on X.

Hardman's time with the Jets was short and uneventful by all means, and injuries didn't help his case in hopes of earning more playing time. Hardman had just three total targets and one catch for six yards in his time in New York.

In Hardman's first game back with the Chiefs, he was targeted three times and had one catch for six yards, so he equaled his season production in just one game with Kansas City.

As time goes on, Hardman should see even more usage offensively, and it helps that he is more or less familiar with the system despite offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy leaving in the offseason and Matt Nagy taking over. Nonetheless, he still catches passes from Patrick Mahomes.

The Chiefs didn't give up much at all to land Hardman, and the Jets moved on from the offseason signing, so it seems both sides are happy with the way things turned out, although Mecole Hardman feels a bit different about his tenure in New York.
