Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles Runs Out of Gas on Way to Training Camp

What was thought to have been a brief hold-out in attending training camp due to an unsettled contract extension was a simple case of running out of gas and a dead cell phone for the Chiefs’ running back Jamaal Charles.

As silly as it sounds, stuff like this happens, even to star athletes such as Charles. Coincidentally enough, Charles and the Chiefs have reached a resolution regarding Charles’ contract extension. The deal will run through 2017 and pay Charles $18.1 million for an additional two years.

Charles is rightfully deserving of increase in pay, as he was responsible for 35.3 percent of the team’s yards from scrimmage in 2013. Practically a one-man show, Charles racked up almost 2,000 combined yards and 19 total touchdowns last season.
