4 Former Chiefs Who Still Can't find a Job in 2024 Free Agency

Despite winning a Super Bowl last year, several of the Chiefs' free agents are struggling to find a job. Here are four former Kansas City players who still can't find employment through free agency.

4. RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire

While running backs like Derrick Henry, Saquon Barkley, and Tony Pollard were snatched up quickly to open free agency, Clyde Edwards-Helaire is one rusher who's still looking for a new place to call home.

Edwards-Helaire, the 32nd-overall pick in 2020, has seen his opportunities dwindle ever since Isiah Pachecho came to town in 2022. After amassing 1,320 rushing yards, 426 receiving yards, and 11 total touchdowns on 355 touches in his first pair of seasons, CEH has only tallied 525 rushing yards, 339 receiving yards, and eight scores on 175 opportunities over the last two years.

Considering how Edwards-Helaire barely made an impact on the Chiefs' last two Super Bowl runs, his unemployed status isn't all that shocking. It certainly didn't help that he averaged a career-low 3.2 rushing yards per carry or that he only hit the 50-yard mark once in 15 games.

With his only being 24 years old, I'm sure Edwards-Helaire will get signed by a team that still believes in his potential. At the same time, that signing might have to wait until after RB-needy teams look for help through April's draft in case someone with more potential than CEH is still on the board.

I hope to see Edwards-Helaire excel wherever he goes, however, it's clear that he must make some serious changes to his game if he doesn't want to remain a bubble player going forward.
