Broncos sign veteran ex-Chief Jamaal Charles


  • The Denver Broncos have signed Jamaal Charles to a one-year deal worth a minimum of $900,000 that can max out at $3.75 million. John Elway announced the signing on Twitter, adding “We’re thrilled we won’t have to play against him!”
  • Charles has posed problems for Denver in the past; he posted a very impressive 74.4 elusive rating in his last two games against them, in which he forced a total of 10 missed tackles.
  • Charles churned out over 180 total yards and managed almost 3 yards after contact per attempt in those two games.
  • Denver saw the best of late-era Charles in their last meeting (2015 Week 2), as he posted season highs in yards and missed tackles forced. Charles was also the only 100-yard rusher allowed by the celebrated 2015 Broncos defense.
  • Charles has only had two years of below-average PFF grades in his career, both of which came in seasons severely curtailed by injury. The Broncos have insured themselves against Charles’ injury risk by including large incentives and gameday active-roster bonuses in his contract.
