Chiefs Hosting RB Carlos Hyde For Visit


Adam Schefter reports that the Chiefs are scheduled to host free agent RB Carlos Hyde for a visit on Saturday. 

It took just a few hours for Hyde to set up his first visit. 

The good news for Hyde is that he has a few days before the start of free agency to visit with prospective teams before the market officially opens.

The Chiefs figure to be in the market for running back help, seeing as both Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware are unrestricted free agents this offseason. 

Hyde, 28, is a former second-round pick of the 49ers back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3.681 million contract before agreeing to a three-year contract worth $15 million with the Browns last year. 

The Browns later traded Hyde to the Jaguars midseason for a 2019 fifth-round pick. 

Hyde was set to make a base salary of $3,250,000 for the 2019 season when the Jaguars announced his release earlier in the day.

In 2018, Hyde appeared in 14 games for the Browns and Jaguars and rushed for 571 yards on 172 carries (3.3 YPC) to go along with 10 receptions for 33 yards receiving and five total touchdowns.
