Free agent running back Carlos Hyde will visit the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The trip and visit comes one day after the Jags released him, after an uneventful time in Jacksonville.
Originally a second-round pick out of Ohio State by the San Francisco 49ers in 2014, Hyde was productive in his four years with the 49ers and played well after signing with the Cleveland Browns last offseason but was a complete bust in Jacksonville after being acquired in a midseason trade.
He also comes with durability concerns and has never posted a 1,000-yard rushing season in his NFL career.
The Chiefs definitely need to add depth at the position with only 2018 UDFA Darrel Williams behind postseason-standout Damien Williams at this time, but Hyde doesn’t really fit the profile of a back that could step in and play an every-down role in the event the former goes down.
The 29-year-old Hyde could, however, threaten the starter’s goal-line reps if he signs with Kansas City.
