The Kansas City Chiefs will have a new offense in 2023.
Despite winning the Super Bowl, the Chiefs let a few of their key players go to free agency.
But when you have Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, you can get away with losing talented players.
JuJu Smith-Schuster was one of the wide receivers who left in free agency.
He only played one year with the Chiefs, then signed a big contract with the New England Patriots.
Another receiver they lost was a player the Chiefs drafted in 2019.
Mecole Hardman was a second-round pick for the Chiefs but never lived up to that potential.
He’s one of the fastest players in the NFL but spent most of his early seasons stuck behind Tyreek Hill.
Then, once Hardman had a chance to shine last year, he could only play eight games.
Hardman never knew anything but playing in Kansas City, and the team sent a nice farewell message.
4 seasons, 4 AFC Championship games, 2 Super Bowl wins.

The 25-year-old wide receiver is now joining the New York Jets, where he hopes to be part of an offense led by Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers made it clear that he intended to play for the Jets, which would be great news for Hardman.
Going from Mahomes to Rodgers might not be that far from a stall, and maybe the Jets will incorporate the speedster more into their offense.
Hardman has yet to show what he can do as a full-season starter.
He might get the chance to do that playing under the lights of New York.
