Hyde, who signed with the Chiefs as a free agent this year, has occasionally played in the lineup with Williams and frequently has been used as a receiver out of the backfield. "For a running back like me who likes to catch the ball . . . it would be like a dream come true," Hyde said.

Hyde was quoted as saying "I didn't know they used the running back so much in the passing game until I got here. It put a smile on my face." He's looking for a fresh start in Kansas City, but will most likely remain in a back-up role unless something were to happen to Damien Williams.
