Fans of the NFL are requesting that the league look into the Kansas City Chiefs after a rival team leaked information about suspicious activity

Football fans are calling for the Kansas City Chiefs to be investigated by the NFL over some rather suspicious activity.

During his appearance on “The Pivot Podcast”, Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman admitted he was “checked out” during his short-lived tenure with the New York Jets. Hardman added that he spoke with Chiefs GM Brett Veach and quarterback Patrick Mahomes and told them to “come get me.”

Sure enough, the Chiefs wound up re-acquiring Hardman from the Jets in a trade involving a swap of late-round picks. Hardman helped the Chiefs defend their Super Bowl championship, catching the game-winning TD pass from Mahomes in overtime against the San Francisco 49ers.

As noted by Connor Hughes of SNY, Hardman’s story is a simple case of tampering. Hughes added that the Jets will likely ask the NFL to investigate and see if the Chiefs committed tampering here.

Fans are now ripping on the Chiefs and calling for the league to investigate and punish them over this suspicious activity…

Hardman later stated on X/Twitter that tampering was not committed, stating that he never spoke with the Chiefs before the trade:

After four seasons with the Chiefs, Hardman signed a one-year deal with the Jets in 2023 free agency. He was a non-factor on a struggling New York team and wound up getting traded back to KC, where Hardman won his third Super Bowl title.
