Chiefs re-sign RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire to one-year deal

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A familiar face will be back in Kansas City for another season. The Chiefs re-signed running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire to a one-year deal on Tuesday.

Edwards-Helaire was selected by the Chiefs in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He has spent all four seasons with the team. His best year so far has been his rookie season, where he rushed for 803 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games.

Edwards-Helaire lost his starting spot to Isiah Pacheco during the 2022 season after dealing with injuries and inconsistent play. He missed the entire 2022 playoffs due to injury.

But, he performed well near the end of the 2023 season in a backup role for the team. His familiarity within the offense and experience play a big part in CEH’s return. He will be expected to back up and complement Pacheco once again.

The Chiefs also brought in former Ravens running back JK Dobbins for a visit.

Edwards-Helaire played in a career-high 15 games last season, finishing with 223 yards and two total touchdowns.
