The NFL world is in a state of shock following the out-of-the-blue trade that sent Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday. The news was especially disappointing given Hill was expected to sign a contract extension with Kansas City this offseason, but talks broke down in recent days.
Current Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman made a heartbreaking tweet on Wednesday night in response to Hill's sudden departure.
Hardman posted a GIF from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that features Will Smith standing alone in an empty house. It's clear that Hardman feels like the last man standing as the Chiefs' WR room changes around him.
Hill isn't the only receiver who's left Kansas City in recent weeks. Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson both departed in free agency as well, landing with the Chicago Bears and Las Vegas Raiders, respectively.
Now Hardman is set to take on a heightened role given the Chiefs' recent loss of talent at wideout. The former second-round pick had the best season of his career in 2021, recording highs in receptions (59) and yards (693) while adding 2 touchdowns.
It remains to be seen if Kansas City will add another top-end wide receiver to go along with Hardman and free-agent signing JuJu Smith-Schuster. The five picks the team received in return for Hill could be the catalyst for replacing him, either through the NFL Draft or a trade.
