Another recent Chiefs’ receiver available this free agency, Mecole Hardman may be an under-the-radar choice for the Patriots.
Despite having the worst statistical season of his career in 2022 due to injury, Hardman brings effortless and impressive speed to the field, taking the top off any defense. He would immediately fill Meyers’ absence while adding the versatility to be used in the backfield; a quality Belichick is known to love.
As likely one of the more intriguing free agents of all receivers this year, the Patriots are bound to get into a bidding war to sign Hardman if that’s the direction they choose. He’s about to be 25 years old and could be a consistent performer for any team, no matter where he goes.
