The Chiefs have made a new addition to their running back room. Carlos Hyde has reportedly agreed to a one-year contract. The deal is for $2.8 million, and $1.6 million of that is guaranteed money.
Hyde, a former second-round pick in 2014 by the 49ers, and played his first four seasons in San Francisco. As a result of the team transitioning out of Frank Gore, Hyde compiled 2,968 scrimmage yards and scored 20 total touchdowns between 2014 and 2018.

After four seasons in San Fran, Hyde moved back to his home state of Ohio, signing a three year deal with the Browns in 2018. Even though he started off last season strong, Cleveland shipped Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars once they felt they needed to get more touches to rookie Nick Chubb. In contrast to his strong stint with the Browns, Hyde’s time in Jacksonville was not very productive. He was used very little and ended up being released by the Jaguars to clear salary cap space.
One day later, the Chiefs have swooped in to make Hyde an addition to a backfield that includes Damien Williams and Darrel Williams. We’ll see what happens with Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West in free agency. There were talks of the Chiefs extending Kareem Hunt during last offseason, but we saw what happened there. Nonetheless, the Chiefs get better with this signing and are currently only spending $5 million on the running back position heading into 2019.
