Chiefs add running back depth before Day 2 of NFL Draft

While his best seasons remained in 2016 and 2017 with the Vikings, in which he topped 500 yards on both events behind Adrian Peterson and Dalvin Cook, McKinnon was able to sign on with the Niners last year after missing out on a number of seasons due to injury. McKinnon tore his ACL in 2018 and LCL in 2019, together with a host of other injuries. By no methods can he be relied upon to take the brunt of carries, however as a seldom-used backup he can supply a strong change of pace to the run video game when hired.

Chiefs continue to surround Patrick Mahomes with talent.
Not that McKinnon will be that much of a difference maker, however we dare you to discover any holes remaining on this offense. The Chiefs addressed their biggest requirement this offseason on the offensive line, by trading for Orlando Brown and signing Joe Thuney, to name a few.
At this moment, anything performed in the draft is just the cherry on top offensively.
The Chiefs provide McKinnon a chance to re-establish himself in the league as a solid backup, should he make that opportunity out of training camp. CEH and Williams are both under 26 years of age, and McKinnon did work as a capable getting hazard at his height, capturing 51 balls for 421 backyards and two goals at his peak with Minnesota.

Aaron Rodgers thinks about retirement, which would cost him an extra $23 million by John Buhler.
The Kansas City Chiefs have included a brand-new running back to the depth chart in former Minnesota Viking and San Francisco 49er Jerick McKinnon.
McKinnon may not be as amazing of an addition as a possible draft pick on either Friday or Saturday, but he does bring a veteran presence to a backfield that already features Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams. McKinnon should remain in good condition to contend immediately for carries behind those 2.
