Kansas City Chiefs Football 2019 - Fantasy Jamaal Charles

And now his watch has ended.

Jamaal Charles is signing a 1-day contract with the Kansas City Chiefs so that he can retire a Chief. He was an integral part of those Chiefs teams and was electric on the field.

Charles, 32, is the Chiefs’ franchise leading rusher with 7,260 yards over nine years with the club. The Chiefs selected Charles with their third-round pick in 2008.

Charles’ historic career in Kansas City came to an end when the Chiefs released him in February of 2017. Charles was never the same after tearing his right anterior cruciate ligament against the Chicago Bears in October of 2015.

Charles still leads the NFL in yards per attempt for running backs at 5.4 yards per carry.
