Impending free-agent RB Darrel Williams (Chiefs) agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $2.13 million - including $930,000 guaranteed - to remain with the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday, March 16.
Huddle Up: Much needs to be sorted out between now and the start of the season, including whether or not the Chiefs decide to keep Damien Williams around. If they do, Darrel Williams will likely do battle with him for No. 2 duties behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire. If they don't, Darrel has RB4 upside. It should not be assumed Edwards-Helaire will share touches like he did at the tail end of 2020, however, as he is one of many rookies who could have used a regular offseason last year.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams was the feature back for the first-team offense at practice Tuesday, Aug. 18, with RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire taking the day off.
Huddle Up: Williams figured to be competing with Darwin Thompson for any work behind the first-round rookie this season. He carried the ball 41 times for 141 yards and three touchdowns while adding 15 receptions for 167 yards and one touchdown last season. He'll be worth a late-round flier if he's indeed named the No. 2 behind CEH.
