Former Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is signing a one-day contract with Kansas City so he can retire as a member of the team that drafted him back in 2008.

Charles spent the first nine years of his career with the Chiefs before a torn ACL derailed his promising career. He was never the same runner following the injury and was released by Kansas City in 2017.
Charles was signed by the Denver Broncos following his release, but rarely saw the field before playing in two games with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season.
Who says terrible knee injuries can’t have a happy ending? Charles put up some pretty decent numbers in KC, maybe the story ends in Canton for him.
