KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Jamaal Charles has reportedly reached a new deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to a report on NFL.com, the Chiefs and their star running back reached a two-year extension. The new deal will make Charles the league's second-highest paid running back.
Before signing the new deal, Charles was scheduled to make $3.9 million for the upcoming season. With the new deal, he will earn $8.3 million.
Last year, Charles ran for 1,287 yards and 19 touchdowns. The Chiefs have not officially announced the new deal. Charles was due to report to training camp in St. Joseph, Mo. today.
For what it's worth, Charles tweeted he had no intention of holding out, probably with a little tongue-in-cheek.
I had no intention on holding out...I just ran out of gas on the way to camp and my cell phone battery died. It was a long walk I tell ya.— Jamaal Charles (@jcharles25) July 23, 2014
