    Good move. Sets a baseline for CJ too.

      Love this move. Really great timing to do a deal like this for the Chiefs. Five years of control for one of the best backs in the league is never a bad thing, money looks like good value too.

          Great move by the Chiefs and seems like just the right amount of money for a running back of his caliber.

            it's a nice contract for both sides... 6 million a season is about right.

              Good move! Good player they got there. Glad to see him do well. I hope he makes the pro bowl and represents them.

                This is a really good deal for the Chiefs. Charles is only 23 and the value of the deal is in line with what other RBs have received lately.

                MJD in '09 signed 5 year, $31 million (17m gtd). S. Jackson in '08 signed 6 year, $44 million (20m gtd) Ryan Grant (4yr, $20 mill8) in '08), Frank Gore (4 yr, $28 mill in '07).


                Now the priority has to be locking up Hali long-term.

                    Not just Hali. Bowe and Flower need to be locked up soon as well.

                      If you're a RB, it's definitely better not to be draft in the first round if you hope to land a big 2nd contract, and this goes to proving it.

                      I don't think KC will be disappointed. Now, they just need to feed him the ball a little more....

                        Reason #2095720347587 why smart teams should never spend a first round pick on a running back.

                        The top 3 RBs this year are an undrafted free agent (Arian Foster), a seventh-round pick (Peyton Hillis), and a third round pick (Jamaal Charles).

                          Unless it's someone absolutely special, like Peterson. If a team commits to making him the central focus of the offense with his new found ability to hang onto the football, there isn't a record that would be out of his reach.

                            Ahmad Bradshaw who is having a great year as well was also a 7th round pick.

                              Also, the two best runningbacks from this draft class so far are Blount and Ivory, both of whom were undrafted. Blount didn't even make it out of Titans training camp.

                              To be fair, though, Blount probably would have been drafted in the low first/early second if it weren't for character concerns.
