Chefs agree on one-year deal with ball carrier DeAndre Washington


The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to a one-year deal with ball carrier DeAndre Washington, by friend of Terez Paylor’s site Yahoo! Sports.

Washington, 27, entered the league as the fifth round pick for the Oakland Raiders in 2016. The 5’8 “210 pound carrier played four seasons for Oakland before coming to Kansas City .

Washington’s first career start against the Chiefs in 2016 came in a 26-10 loss to Kansas City. It was the first of five starts for Washington in his career. Three of these departures took place last season with injured ball carrier Josh Jacobs. His combined statistics in these competitions were 54 runs for 214 yards (3.96 yards per run) and two touchdowns and 16 catches for 119 yards.

Washington has played four seasons at Texas Tech, including two seasons (2014-15) with quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Washington ran 1,492 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015 – its last season at Texas Tech – while Mahomes threw 4,653 and 36 touchdowns, including two in Washington. Mahomes would spend another year at Texas Tech before being selected by the Chiefs in the 2017 NFL draft.

Washington joins a crowded running back in Kansas City, with Damien Williams, Darrel Williams, Darwin Thompson, Elijah McGuire, Mike Weber and Marcus Marshall.

In 55 games (five starts), Washington had 282 rushes for 1,122 yards and seven touchdowns, as well as 88 catches for 613 yards and one touchdown.
