Jamaal Charles jokes that he didn't intend to hold out of training camp

Wednesday July 23rd, 2014

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles ended his holdout today when he signed a contract extension. Charles is apparently happy with the new deal. He took to Twitter to make light of the situation. 

The new contract will pay Charles an additional $5 million this season. With that money, he could have afforded to call a cab. But honestly, it would have probably been faster if he just ran the rest of the way.
