Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is reportedly on his way to training camp after the two sides agreed to a long-term contract extension on Wedensday. 

Charles was a holdout for all of about 30 minutes prior to reportedly agreeing to this deal. There were conflicting reports on Tuesday that the Pro Bowl running back would not show up to camp unless the Chiefs signed him to a long-term deal.

According to Adam Schefter, Charles received a two-year extension that will make him the second highest-paid running back in the NFL. He has racked up over 3,700 total yards and 25 touchdowns over the course of the past two seasons.
