According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and other multiple reports, the Denver Broncos are bringing former Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles in for a scheduled visit on Tuesday.
Former Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles scheduled to visit Broncos on Tuesday, sources tell ESPN. Broncos enthused about it. Good fit for both sides
It certainly does seem like it would be a great fit for both sides if Charles is healthy and can stay healthy. Denver has been searching all offseason to upgrade their offense by bringing in more skilled and dynamic players.
Over the weekend, the Broncos added a lot of depth in the form of quick receivers Carlos Henderson and Isaiah McKenzie that can help in the slot WR role and on returns, and they also added running back De’Angelo Henderson out of Coastal Carolina after trading away Kapri Bibbs.
Those additions all seem to be solid depth moves for a team that had little to none when hampered with injuries last year. This addition of Charles would be more than just a depth move — Jamaal Charles is a guy that would instantly contend for your starting running back position, again, if healthy.
Charles has rushed for 7,260 yards in his nine year NFL career, and his 5.5 yards-per-carry average makes him the all-time leader in that category. His 43 rushing touchdowns combined with 20 receiving touchdowns prove how much of a dual-threat he has been in his career.
