Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 7/24

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...

Jamaal Charles is an elite NFL player, Chiefs GM John Dorsey says

Jamaal Charles is an elite NFL player, Chiefs GM John Dorsey says

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...

Where Jamaal Charles new contract ranks him with other NFL running backs

Where Jamaal Charles new contract ranks him with other NFL running backs

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...

Jamaal Charles has the best response to his new contract with Chiefs

Jamaal Charles has the best response to his new contract with Chiefs

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.

Approval poll: Jamaal Charles gets a 4-year contract from Kansas City Chiefs

Approval poll: Jamaal Charles gets a 4-year contract from Kansas City Chiefs

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...

Justin Houston's contract situation: everything we know

KC Chiefs LB Justin Houston is entering the final year of his rookie contract and hopes to sign a new deal with the team. I was talking on Wednesday with Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison on 610 Sports about whether Alex Smith or Justin Houston will receive a new contract first. I was leaning towards Alex Smith because the Chiefs have talked so much about wanting to get that deal done but now that I think about it, Houston might make more sense as the one most likely to get a new deal first. Houston held out out from the offseason program, and could hold out for training camp, too (no...

Jamaal Charles, Chiefs Agree to Extension; Avoid Training Camp Holdout

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...

Doesn't appear Jamaal Charles showed up to Kansas City Chiefs training camp today

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...

10 things to know about the Jamaal Charles contract situation

Will Jamaal Charles hold out? Will he report to camp? What the heck is going on with the Chiefs' finances? Let's just make an important list to consider from all sides. 1. Not all reports turn out to be true and, in fact, can look absolutely absurd in the rearview mirror. Jamaal Charles not showing up at Chiefs training camp will be news when Jamaal Charles does not show up at training camp. There is one report that says he won't show. The Chiefs reportedly believe he will be there. Veterans report Wednesday for the first practice on Thursday. 2. The Chiefs have known that Jamaal wants to...

The priority list for the Kansas City Chiefs Big 3 contracts

The priority list for the Kansas City Chiefs Big 3 contracts

The Chiefs have three big name players in search of new contracts. Which one should be the priority? I am not John Dorsey but I try to play him on the Internet. This is my priority list for the Kansas City Chiefs Big Three; the three players in search of new contracts, including Jamaal Charles, Justin Houston and Alex Smith. 1. Jamaal Charles (2 years left) This seems backwards since he has the most years left. Maybe I'm reacting in the heat of the moment but ... he is the Chiefs best player. He is the most underpaid player. He is also the biggest threat to hold out. For those reasons,...
