For the last week, the Kansas City Chiefs have gotten to celebrate winning their second Super Bowl ring in the last 4 years.

While most of the team has been enjoying the celebration, it turns out that one member of the Chiefs’ roster had somewhere else to be while the rest of the team was at the Super Bowl parade.

Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire didn’t make it to the parade and now we know why.

According to Heavy Sports’ Devon Clements, Edwards-Helaire chose to walk in Brooklyn Fashion Week instead of attending the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade.

It would be surprising to see Clyde Edwards-Helaire on the Chiefs’ roster next season.

Edwards-Helaire has struggled to live up to the hype that came along with being a 1st round pick for the Chiefs back in 2020.

CEH was expected to be a big part of the offense right from the start of his career and received a big role as a rookie. In his first year in the league, he had 181 rushing attempts and made 36 catches, gaining 1100 total yards.

Since then, his role has diminished. In year 2, he received just 119 carries and was only responsible for 646 total yards. In 2022, he was completely replaced.

In his 3rd year in the league, Edwards-Helaire only had 71 carries and none of them came after Week 11. CEH wasn’t even active for the Super Bowl after Isiah Pacheco and Jerrick McKinnon had taken over the backfield with Ronald Jones being the next man up in the rotation.

It looks like Clyde Edwards-Helaire wasn’t all that interested in celebrating a Super Bowl that he didn’t play much of a part in winning.
