Chiefs sign Clyde Edwards-Helaire to one-year contract

After much consideration, Clyde Edwards-Helaire has decided to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs for the 2024 season. The Chiefs have agreed to a one-year deal with the running back, who was selected with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2020 draft following their victory in Super Bowl LIV.

As a rookie, Edwards-Helaire had an impressive performance, accumulating 1,100 yards from scrimmage and five total touchdowns. However, due to injuries and Isiah Pacheco’s strong performance, he fell down the depth chart in 2022. Despite this setback, Edwards-Helaire still managed to tally 411 yards from scrimmage on 87 touches during the Chiefs’ Super Bowl LVIII win. In his 48 games with 32 starts, he has accumulated 1,845 rushing yards with 12 rushing touchdowns. Additionally, he has caught 89 passes for 765 yards and seven TDs.

The signing of Edwards-Helaire is not expected to impact the Chiefs’ pursuit of other running backs such as J.K. Dobbins, who recently met with the team for a visit on Tuesday. It remains uncertain whether Dobbins will ultimately sign with the Chiefs or another team.
