Former Chiefs RB Charles signs with Broncos


The Denver Broncos confirmed the signing of former Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles.

Broncos general manager John Elway announced the deal on Tuesday and, according to multiple reports, Charles got a one-year deal worth up to $3.75million.

Charles, 30, was released by the Chiefs in February after another injury-plagued season.

His productivity had decreased over the last two years, largely because of the torn ACL he suffered in October 2015.

He did not seem to fully recover from the injury, and did not take the field until week five of the 2016 season.

He played in only three games until he suffered a setback in his knee that required surgery on his meniscus.

Once again, Charles missed the end of the season.

The four-time Pro Bowler and 2013 NFL rushing touchdowns leader will likely battle for snaps with Devontae Booker for the number two job behind backup C.J. Anderson in Denver.
