Buccaneers Re-Sign Chase Edmonds

Monday, March 11, 9:40 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are re-signing running back Chase Edmonds to an undisclosed one-year deal on Monday, according to a source. Edmonds will return to Tampa in 2024 as a backfield complement to Rachaad White, who should continue to command most of the running back touches for the Bucs in 2024. The 27-year-old Edmonds played in only 13 games in his first year with Tampa in 2023 and had just 49 carries for 176 yards and no touchdowns, adding 14 receptions for an additional 81 yards through the air. Unless White suffers an injury, Edmonds will be little more than a deep-league handcuff in fantasy. The Buccaneers also have Sean Tucker in the RB room and could add to the position in the upcoming NFL draft.
