Wow! Feels good to have Jamaal Charles locked up for the next 4 years, right? Read all about that and a ton of other items in today's Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Also, can someone write a nice rebuttal to the whiny article from Tampa Bay? Thanks. Chiefs Sign Charles To Contract Extension from The Mothership The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the team has inked running back Jamaal Charles to a contract extension. Terms of the contract will not be released by the club. "Jamaal is an elite player in the National Football League," Chiefs General Manager...

The GM of the Chiefs offered a brief statement after signing Jamaal Charles to a four-year, $28 million contract. It's officially official. Jamaal Charles is signed, sealed and delivered after physically signing his contact in St. Joe on Wednesday evening. I didn't expect a long holdout ... but I expected something more than the 45-minute or so holdout that we saw from the Kansas City Chiefs running back. After Jamaal inked his deal, Chiefs GM John Dorsey said he was E-L-I-T-E (he didn't spell it like that, but whatever). "Jamaal is an elite player in the National Football League," Dorsey...

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is en route to training camp, after all. Charles, who wasn’t present during the open media period when veterans arrived Wednesday, agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Chiefs, a source confirmed with ChiefsSpin.com. The extension locks up Charles through the 2017 regular season. While […]
Running down the numbers on Jamaal Charles' new contract with the Chiefs. Upon the news that the Kansas City Chiefs had inked Jamaal Charles to a new two-year deal, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Jamaal would be the second highest paid running back in the NFL. That is true ... kinda. 2nd highest paid in 2014 For the 2014 season, Charles is indeed the second highest paid running back. He went from $3.9 million in 2014 cash on his previous deal to $8.3 million on the new deal. That $8.3 million is slightly ahead of Jonathan Stewart's $8.285 million due in 2014, making him the second...

Just hours after a holdout was announced Tuesday night, the Chiefs have agreed to a new deal with Charles, ESPN's Adam Schefter says via Twitter. The 28 year-old back was scheduled to make $3.65 million during the 2014 season, a figure that is now much higher. The contract is reportedly worth $18 million through 2017. Charles is currently en route to training camp. FANTASY ANALYSIS: Well, at least that one was over quickly. The holdout that wasn't lasted all of half a day, and has ended with both parties apparently happy and ready to get to work. Any questions about Charles' draft stock that...

Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles has reached a two-year contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs. A person familiar with the contract said the deal will keep Charles in Kansas City through the 2017 season. He spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the team has not disclosed details. The six-year NFL veteran ran for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last year as the Chiefs reached the playoffs. He also had 70 catches for 693 yards and seven more TDs as Kansas City went 11-5 before losing to Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game.
Jamaal Charles is the best. So Jamaal Charles got a fancy new contract on Wednesday that will pay him $28 million over four years. This comes after a tumultuous 24 hours in which it was being reported that he would skip training camp in his quest for a new deal. Jamaal took to Twitter for pretty much the best response ever: I had no intention on holding out...I just ran out of gas on the way to camp and my cell phone battery died. It was a long walk I tell ya. — Jamaal Charles (@jcharles25) July 23, 2014 HAAAA!!! Jamaal, please don't ever change.
Do you approve of the 4-year, $28 million deal Jamaal Charles received from the Kansas City Chiefs? The Kansas City Chiefs and Jamaal Charles have come to an agreement on a new contract. The new deal will pay Charles $28 million over four years for an average of $7 million per year. That's ranks him in the middle of the top 10 for annual average pay for running backs. The new deal will reportedly pay him $8.3 million in 2014, which is the second highest rate for a running back this season. Charles had two years left on his previous deal at just under $10 million. That was signed back in...

Charles has rushed for at least 1,100 yards in four of the last five seasons. His 12 rushing touchdowns were No. 1 in the NFL in 2013. The Kansas City Chiefs didn't want to see their best player holding out, but Jamaal Charles has certainly earned the right to a more lucrative contract. Set to earn just $3.9 million this year, Charles wanted a deal that paid him like he's the best running back in the NFL, and the two sides have reached a compromise. Jamaal Charles will get $18 million in new money as part of his 2-year extension with the Chiefs, source tells @FOXSports1 — Mike Garafolo...

He's baaaaack!!! That didn't last long. Jamaal Charles and the Kansas City Chiefs have reached an agreement on a new contract, according to NFL Network. Jamaal Charles and the #Chiefs have struck a deal, source says. He’s heading to camp now. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 23, 2014 Let me be the first say ... WHEW! Word came down on Tuesday night that Jamaal Charles was going to hold out from training camp barring a new deal. The Chiefs veterans reported for training camp on Wednesday and I did not see Jamaal while I was out there, which made it appear he was a holdout. The next...

The first training camp practice is scheduled for Thursday.

It does not appear Jamaal Charles showed up to the first day of Kansas City Chiefs training camp. I spent the day at Kansas City Chiefs training camp in St. Joe and did not see any sign of RB Jamaal Charles, who is reportedly set to be a holdout barring a new deal. Reports on Tuesday night indicated the Chiefs believed Charles would show. But there appears to be no sign of him as we sit here on Wednesday afternoon. The veteran players were scheduled to arrive this afternoon. The media camped out by the entrance of their dorm and we saw player after player walk in ... but no sign of Jamaal...

Chiefs RB considered a training camp holdout The Chiefs' 3 p.m. CT reporting deadline has passed and Jamaal Charles is not in camp, making him a holdout. First practice is Thurs. p.m. (Adam Teicher via Twitter) FF Today's Take: One of best running backs in the game is seeking more money. Charles is under contract through 2015 but wants a new deal based on prior production. He's underpaid relatively to others at his position but the league-wide trend is not pay running backs. The Chiefs signed Charles to a six-year deal worth close to $28 million back in 2010. This is no time...
