Will Charles hold out for a better contract?
 
Jamal is going to be paid a paltry $2.5 million in 2014. Thats not a typo. $2.5 million. One of the best running backs with 2-3 years left of prime time in his career..........I'm sure his agent is whispering in his ear. The Chiefs know its an insulting salary to pay one of the best RB's in the league.

You can say he signed it, play the contract out. But, its the real world.

NFL RB's that hold out always, always get their money. The template is clear. If Charles would set out a year, he loses $2.5 Million. You think he doesn't make that up in a new contract next year.

Anyone want to bet that the Chiefs give Charles a new contract this off season to avoid a nasty contract fight?

What was he paid in upfront signing bonus money and would he have to pay that back if he did hold out?

It would be smart, unload some of the dead weight on this team and make Charles and Smith a priority. It doesnt look like Dorsey is sleeping much these days, I think losing that playoff game left as bad a taste in his mouth as it did ours.

12/11/2010: Signed a six-year, $27.97 million contract. The deal contains $13 million guaranteed, including an $8 million first-year roster bonus and $2 million of his second-year salary. Another $5 million is available through incentives. An annual $250,000 workout bonus is available in years two through six. 2014: $2.25 million, 2015: $4.75 million, 2016: Free Agent

I caught a little bit of Kietzman on this. He had the Chiefs signing Alex & Jamaal to new deals. Then booting Flowers.Too much $s for a nickleback. Maybe he's after new offseason callers

Sitting out this season wouldnt be smart, next season I think it would benefit him more. It would be smart for the Dorsey to hand him a nice shiny new contract though. Money wise I dont know what though.

Booting Flowers would be stupid.

Like I suspected, BRC didn't bother to read the fine print.

He could try, but it is becoming more evident in the NFL quality running backs are not hard to find...take Charles a third round pick...his back up who played well in a playoff game as a rookie also a third round pick. The Browns/Colts trade proved this season that teams overvalue running backs. Of the top five running backs this season only one was a first round pick.
If he can get it...go for it, but with all the holes and other cap issues the Chiefs have and new deal will have to be cap friendly.

That's a fair deal. If I were him I'd keep doing what I'm doing.

And your too stupid to have a single original thought. We all have or crosses to bear.

The NFL has learned all too many times that putting too much into a RB can burn you. I see giving him more, but I'd not sell the farm to keep him. So it's a yes and a no; yes to a raise, but no to something crazy.

Find out what he's going to demand and see what else that same money can bring if spread around.

Then again, **** these assholes! Not JC's fault (he was hurt!!!), but the Chefs, like the entire NFL, are learning the reality of losing your workhorse. Plan for it...

TribalElder 01-11-2014 11:00 AM

I hope charles gets to play an entire playoff game someday without some ****wad injuring him

Quoted for obvious hilarity.

Do "fair deals" matter?

Tell me about a NFL RB that played under a bad contract in their prime?

I'll wait....
