Chiefs sign Clyde Edwards-Helaire to one-year contract

Clyde Edwards-Helaire has decided to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs for the 2024 season, after agreeing to a one-year deal. Despite declining his fifth-year option last spring, 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.

Kansas City had running back J.K. Dobbins in for a visit on Tuesday, but it is uncertain whether the signing of Edwards-Helaire will impact their pursuit of Dobbins, who recently met with the Chargers as well. Despite falling down the depth chart in 2022 due to injuries and Isiah Pacheco’s strong performance, Edwards-Helaire had an impressive rookie year in 2020 when he was selected by the Chiefs with the No. 32 overall pick following their victory in Super Bowl LIV and went on to have 1,100 yards from scrimmage and five total touchdowns.
