July 19 (UPI) -- Kansas City Chiefs rookie Mecole Hardman used some of his new contract to buy his mom a new house.
Hardman, 21, posted a video of himself revealing the home to his mom Thursday on social media. The University of Georgia product was a second round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
"Mecole Hardman here," he said. "I just bought my mom a crib. She has no idea. We are going to reveal it to her today. It's going to be a great day."
Hardman had friends and family waiting at the house with balloons as his mother, Danyell Hardman, arrived in a bus. She stepped out with a blindfold on.
"I'm just blessed," Danyell Hardman said. "It makes you feel good as a mother to know your kids would go to this depth. they let you know you did good."
Hardman said he has dreamed of buy his mom a house since he was eight.
"Now to finally do it, words can't explain how happy and excited I am," Hardman wrote on Instagram. "I love you mom. It's my turn to take care of you now."
"Yeah my brother, that's dope," Gurley wrote.
Hardman signed a four-year contract with the Chiefs. The deal includes a $1.6 million signing bonus and $2.3 million guaranteed. The former Bulldogs pass-catcher could be in for a No. 2 role as a wide receiver for the Chiefs this season if Tyreek Hill misses any time due to a possible suspension.
Sammy Watkins would be the team's second option if Hill doesn't miss time.
