Chiefs welcome carlos

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs have confirmed that they have signed a new player to the team.

On Saturday, the Chiefs tweeted that they had signed free agent running back Carlos Hyde to the team.

This gives them another veteran running back in their thin backfield.

Hyde, 28, was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday, and the Chiefs moved swiftly in inviting him for a visit.

They were seeking help behind Damien Williams and Darrel Williams, who became their top two running backs when Kareem Hunt was released last season.

Hyde was a second-round pick of the 49ers in 2014.

He signed with the Browns last year, then was traded in October to the Jaguars for a fifth-round pick.
