Reports: Chiefs, RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire agree to 1-year deal

The Kansas City Chiefs are bringing back running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire on a one-year contract, several reports said Tuesday.

Edwards-Helaire, who turns 25 April 11, was the Chiefs’ first-round draft pick (No. 32 overall) in 2020 and spent his first four NFL seasons with the club. He lost his starting job to Isiah Pacheco during the 2022 campaign, and 2023 saw his lowest production yet.

In 15 games (three starts) last season, Edwards-Helaire had 70 carries for 223 rushing yards and one touchdown, along with 17 receptions for 188 yards and a touchdown.

Over 48 career games (32 starts), Edwards-Helaire has amassed 1,845 rushing yards, caught 89 passes for 765 yards and totaled 19 touchdowns (12 rushing, seven receiving).

Reports earlier Tuesday said the Chiefs had brought in free agent running back J.K. Dobbins for a visit.
