Jamaal Charles is still one of the remaining high-caliber players that are still available in the trade market up to this time. Though he had a visit with the Seattle Seahawks a couple of days ago, there's no final agreement if he will sign with them. Latest news is saying that the Denver Broncos could be an ideal fit for the free agent running back.
Jamaal Charles was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft. From a third stringer on his rookie year, Charles became the Chiefs' first-stringer on the tailback the following year after the team released Larry Johnson. Since then, he established his name to the game and collect different awards the succeeding years.
Jamaal Charles was selected to the Pro Bowl four times and was voted to the First-team All-Pro two times. He was also named as the NFL rushing touchdown leader in 2013 and holds the league's 5.5 career rushing average for a running back. However, knee injuries the past two seasons slowed him down and seems to be the reason the Chiefs are letting him go.
With Jamaal Charles status still up in the air, recent reports suggest that the Denver Broncos could be a logical destination for him. According to NFL.com, Charles main goal is to sign with a Super Bowl contender and the Broncos would be a plausible option for him.
Coincidentally, the Denver Broncos do have problems in the backfield right now following the injury of C.J. Anderson and the inconsistent play of rookie Devontae Booker last season. Jamaal Charles is the reasonable choice for the Broncos right now due to his vast experience in the league. Many believed that he will fit well into Denver's running attack game given that he will recover fully from his injuries.
Aside from running attacks, Jamaal Charles is also equipped to play in a passing game. In nine season with the Chiefs, Jamaal Charles has registered 7,260 rushing yards and 43 rushing touchdowns. He also put up 285 excellent reception for 2,457 yards and 20 touchdowns in 103 games he played.
