Charles signed a six-year, $28 million contract in 2010 but was originally due to make only $3.65 million in 2014. He intended to hold out until he receives a new contract on par with one of the top offensive weapons in the league.
Charles led the league in touchdowns in 2013 with 19, while also gaining 1,980 yards from scrimmage – 2nd in the league.
Charles, a 3-time Pro Bowler and 2 time First Team All-Pro selection, holds the NFL record for rushing yards per attempt (5.6) for any player with more than 900 career rushing attempts. He needs only 248 yards to become the Chiefs’ all-time leading rusher.
The Chiefs went 11-5 in 2013 after going 2-14 in 2012.
