Former Georgia WR Mecole Hardman undergoes surgery before free agency

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has a critical offseason coming up.

Hardman recently underwent a successful surgery for a core muscle and pelvic injury.

Mecole Hardman is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason.

He is one of the top wide receivers on the market. Hardman’s health could be a concern for some NFL teams,

but he will have time to make progress in his recovery ahead of the start of free agency in March.

Hardman was ruled out for the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles due to a core muscle and pelvic injury.

 Kansas City won the Super Bowl without Hardman active for the game.

The Chiefs could look to retain Hardman in order to maintain some continuity. However, Kansas City has limited cap space.

Hardman, a former Georgia Bulldog standout, finished the regular season with 25 catches for 297 receiving yards ,

and four receiving touchdowns. Hardman also ran the ball four times for 31 yards and a two rushing touchdowns.

Hardman missed much of the second half of the season with a pelvis injury,

 but he returned for the AFC championship game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Unfortunately, Hardman reinjured his pelvis against the Bengals.
