Mecole Hardman’s pregame fit is better than yours
Hardman is expected to make a major leap in 2020 as a receiver, and to prepare for said jump, he’s dressing for success. Sadly for Chiefs fans, success for Hardman looks a lot like bedtime for the rest of us.
Jokes aside, Hardman is one of the better personalities in the NFL, and in just his second season in the league he’s already got a reputation for ridiculous pregame fits. Thursday night against the Houston Texans with the entire sports world watching is no exception.
Mecole Hardman’s outfit aside, he’ll be a key contributor for Kansas City
Hardman is expected to slide right into the WR3 hole in KC yet again, with Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins on the outside. While on most teams that wouldn’t signify a potential Pro Bowl campaign, in Hardman’s case it very well could. Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback we’ve seen in a long time, and Andy Reid is among the best play-callers in the NFL. When you combine the two, magic ensues, with Hardman benefitting tremendously.
The Georgia product made the Pro Bowl in his first season in the league as primarily a special teams contributor. This doesn’t mean the Chiefs ignored his potential offensively, as he was used as a weapon frequently. However, the Chiefs realize that combining Hardman and Hill on the same offense more often makes their unit even more dangerous, and to accomplish that they’ll need to take some special teams snaps away from him.
We’ll see if that pays dividends from the outset.
