Bucs sign RB Chase Edmonds

There’s a new running back in Tampa Bay.

Ian Rapoport reported on Thursday that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing free agent running back Chase Edmonds to a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum of $1.08 million. Edmonds played for both the Miami Dolphins and the Denver Broncos in 2022.

The signing will allow the Bucs to pair another running back with current Tampa Bay starter Rachaad White. Edmonds has firmly been a second back his whole career, with his best season coming in 2021 when he ran for 592 yards on 5.1 yards per carry and two rushing touchdowns with the Arizona Cardinals. The Buccaneers only had White and Ke’Shawn Vaughn under contract for 2023, so the move allows for a bit more flexibility in the backfield for the Bucs.
