Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has a base salary of $1,985,670 in 2023, the final year of his rookie deal.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s Salary

Selected 32nd by the Chiefs in the 2020 NFL Draft, Edwards-Helaire is set to enter the final year of a four-year, $10,821,570 rookie contract. The deal includes $9,955,845 in guaranteed money.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s Cap Hit

Edwards-Helaire will count for $3,443,228 against the cap in 2023.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s Potential Extension

With his third NFL campaign nearly in the books, Edwards-Helaire will be eligible for a contract extension this offseason. It’s unlikely to materialize as the 23-year-old has underwhelmed during his Chiefs tenure, struggling with injuries and seeing his production decline each year.

To make matters worse, this season saw Edwards-Helaire fall to third on the depth chart, overtaken by seventh-round rookie Isiah Pacheco and veteran Jerick McKinnon. Don’t expect KC to pick up Edwards-Helaire’s fifth-year option.
