Jamaal Charles, running back, Kansas City Chiefs
Having already drawn interest from the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Charles signed on with a new team here relatively soon. While Seattle might be out of the picture after signing Eddie Lacy, that specific deal could have set a market for this former Pro Bowler.
Lacy received $2.9 million guaranteed with a potential of earning $4.3 million from Seattle. Coming off a two-year span that saw him play in a combined eight games, the 30-year-old Charles is likely looking at an incentive-laden one-year contract on the free-agent market.
Despite this recent injury history, Charles has more than proven himself capable of being an elite performer when on the football field. In his last two full seasons, the four-time Pro Bowl performer put up over 3,300 total yards with an NFL-best 33 touchdowns. He’s more than capable of returning to pre-injury form.
Pure conjecture here, but it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Charles land with former Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson in Philadelphia. That seems to make too much sense for all involved parties.
