Chiefs sign Clyde Edwards-Helaire to one-year contract

In a surprising turn of events, Clyde Edwards-Helaire has decided to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs for the 2024 season after agreeing to a one-year deal. This announcement comes just months after the Chiefs selected Edwards-Helaire with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2020 draft, following their victory in Super Bowl LIV.

Despite falling down the depth chart in 2022 due to injuries and Isiah Pacheco’s strong performance, 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 news of Edwards-Helaire’s re-signing was met with surprise by many, as it was reported that the Chiefs had declined his fifth-year option last spring. However, it appears that the team values his contributions to their offense and has chosen to keep him around for another year.

In addition to re-signing Edwards-Helaire, Kansas City also reportedly had running back J.K. Dobbins in for a visit on Tuesday. It remains uncertain whether the signing of Edwards-Helaire will impact their pursuit of Dobbins or any other potential free agent signings they may have planned.
