This is the annual offseason tradition for the Kansas City Chiefs and Jerick McKinnon. The veteran rusher has hit the free-agent market once again after signing three straight one-year contracts with Kansas City.

At age 31, McKinnon is nothing more than a change-of-pace option in the backfield for Mahomes. Isiah Pacheco will continue to get the majority of carries but McKinnon provides a different pass-catching element in the rotation. In fact, in his three seasons with the Chiefs, he registered 94 catches, 811 yards, and 14 receiving touchdowns.

This certainly has plenty of value, especially considering that Clyde Edwards-Helaire will likely be leaving. A cheap veteran option who is still productive is worth bringing back.
