After 1-Day Holdout, Jamaal Charles Gets Extension with Chiefs

The All-Pro Running Back held out the first day of training camp. Well, Kansas City knows damn well what they have in Jamaal Charles by making the 3rd leading rusher the second-highest paid player in the backfield, only to Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings.The extension tacks on a couple more years for $18 million more. Charles racked up a dozen rushing touchdowns, tied for the best in the NFL along with Marshawn Lynch from the Seattle Seahawks. As valuable as any position player in the game, Charles caught 70 passes, led all backs with 693 yards, and also led all backs with 7 scores through the air.

Concerning Fantasy Football fans, Charles is a top 3 running back and definite first round pick. The order will be shuffled by personal preference, but Jamaal Charles is top 3 with the aforementioned Adrian Peterson, and leading rusher LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles. Those of you that watched the Eagles in Andy Reid’s tenure are aware, that the Chiefs are going to keep feeding Charles.
