The Kansas City Chiefs are re-signing wide receiver Mecole Hardman, a source told NFL insider Jordan Schultz.

It's a one-year deal for Hardman, a source told Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The New York Jets traded Hardman to the Chiefs during the 2023 campaign, and he caught the game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl LVIII against the San Francisco 49ers.

The 26-year-old played sparingly for K.C. in the regular season, hauling in 14 catches for 118 yards in six appearances while playing 33% of the club's offensive snaps.

Hardman continued to play a minor role through the Chiefs' first three playoff games but came down with 57 yards and the aforementioned touchdown on three receptions in the Super Bowl.

Outside of last season's brief stint with the Jets, the Georgia product has spent his entire career with the Chiefs. The 2019 second-rounder has accumulated 2,212 yards and 16 touchdowns on 166 receptions in 68 career games.
