Jamaal Charles joins division rival Broncos-- Tue May 2 5:30 pm --
Denver reached an agreement with former Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles on a one-year contract Tuesday after he met with team officials and underwent a physical. The dealÂ includes a $900,000 base salary, a $100,000 workout bonus, plus 46-man active roster bonuses and incentivesÂ that make it worth up to $3.75 million, according to two NFL sources.(Denver Post)
FF Today's Take:Charles has dealt with multiple knee injuries over the last two years including an ACL tear. If healthy, he can give the Broncos a jolt of speed and quickness, something they lacked in the running game last season. Charles will fight for carries with C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker but a likely scenario is Anderson and Charles splitting carries as long as the two remain healthy.
Jamaal Charles to visit Broncos Tuesday-- Mon May 1 2:10 pm --
FF Today's Take:The 30-year-old Charles hasn't had much interest this off-season after missing most of 2016 with various knee injuries. C.J Anderson and Devontae Booker remain in Denver but there were reports the Broncos were interested in Christian McCaffrey in last week's draft.
Eddie Lacy lands one-year deal with Seahawks-- Tue Mar 14 12:30 pm --
$3 million fully guaranteed
Running back Eddie Lacy has agreed to a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, his agents said Tuesday. A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the deal is worth $5.55 million, with $3 million fully guaranteed.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Despite the signing it's expected that Jamaal Charles will visit the Seahawks on Wednesday. Lacy missed the majority of 2016 with an ankle injury playing in only five games but did rack up an impressive 5.1 yards per carry. This signing dampens the fantasy value of Thomas Rawls who's had injury problems of his own.
Chiefs release Jamaal Charles-- Tue Feb 28 2:00 pm --
FF Today's Take:This was an expected move as Charles was set to count $6 million against the salary cap and has battled knee injuries over the past two seasons. Charles states he will be healthy for the 2017 season. Expect him to sign a one-year deal once free agency begins.
