4. Mecole Hardman
Hardman was signed by the Jets last year with the hopes of adding a dynamic playmaker to an offense that was to be led by Aaron Rodgers. We know what happened with Rodgers' injury and the Jets' offense being one of the worst in the league after. Hardman was traded back to the Chiefs after just five games in New York.
This year has definitely been the least productive of Hardman's career, but he is still a burner who can be deployed in a variety of ways on offense. He is essentially what Bears fans hoped Velus Jones could become, but that looks like an experiment worth tossing out at this point.
Hardman will not come in and be an every-down receiver to pair with D.J. Moore, but he can be another weapon for new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron to utilize. Hardman also could provide value as a returner, a position that will need to be addressed if the Bears do not re-sign Trent Taylor.
