Report: Chiefs reach agreement with RB Jamaal Charles on contract extension

The Kansas City Chiefs and star running back Jamaal Charles have just reached an agreement on a new contract that will keep the three-time Pro Bowler from holding out for a pay raise.

Here's Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network with the scoop:

Charles' new deal will pay him handsomely for his production over the past few seasons:

News of Charles' extension comes less than a day after Brad Stephens of KCTV 5 reported that Charles would not report to training camp under the terms of his old deal:

Charles was slated to make just $3.9 million in 2014 before the two sides came to an accord. His 2014 salary would have placed him behind 13 other NFL running backs in compensation and would have stood as 1/3 of what Adrian Peterson ($12 million) will make with the Vikings this year.
