Wow, I thought Houston said he was going to attend. I think that is the hold out that will go on the longest. They can live without a one trick pony pass rusher but not the guy their entire O is built around.

I was joking, yes. Just getting a jump on the spin before KCStud had a chance.

Gimme some more credit than that.

I thought this guy was out of the NFL...

Elway could offer him a ham sandwich with pickles and he would leave the offer sitting on Andy's desk and run for the airport.

Jamaal Charles and the #Chiefs have struck a deal, source says. He’s heading to camp now.

Interesting to see what they gave him.

7-8 mil is probably fair, if it's more eh.

@AdamSchefter Chiefs giving Charles a 2-year extension that makes him 2nd-highest paid RB in league and ties him to KC for 4 seasons.

Ian Rapoport @RapSheet 2m It’s a 2-year extension for #Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles worth $18M in new money, source says. Extra $5M over the next 2 years. Top 5 RB money

Hopefully it's a Larry Johnson esque contract.

That's a good contract for KC. Doesn't tie up salary for too long, but keeps him in KC for likely the prime of his career.

Indeed. Seeing the Chiefs sinking Peyton Manning money into a running back makes me happy.

You think he'll still be in his prime at 31-32?

Well, he's 27 now. So, he'll be 30 years in December of year 3 of the deal. I think he should be in his prime for that, at least. There's a chance he declines a bit for the last year of the deal, but think overall it's worth the risk if you are KC. They couldn't risk a hold out by Charles, as he is too valuable to what their team does on offense.

Seems to be a fair deal to both sides, if you ask me.

The question is more, can they afford to sign Smith and Houston?

They can but will probably have to cut some players to keep them.

Depending what both want.

Say 11ish for Houston and 15-18 for Smith.

KCDud is on a month long ban. He's not here to post his nonsense so it looks like the thread got backed up.

Chiefs still suck though.

Must be depressing for Charles to know he's going to waste his prime and potentially his career in KC. I'm guessing the celebration after signing that contract extension was bittersweet.

Step One: sign new contract
Step Two: sabotage Peyton Manning

Personally I wonder if he doesn't get beat up bad this year and start fighting nagging injuries. Reids entire O is based around dumping it off to him or running him into the ground. We saw how that worked with TD after a couple years.

We are playing very physical teams this year in the NFC. Glad to see he got paid for taking kFc to the playoffs last year.

i put this here because the chiefs front office sucks

Report: Marshawn Lynch ending holdout

Posted by Josh Alper on July 31, 2014, 3:39 PM EDT
Marshawn Lynch
AP
It looks like Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has decided not to be all about that holdout, boss.

Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that Lynch is expected to end his holdout in the next 24 hours and report to work with the Seahawks.

Per the report, Lynch will not be receiving a new deal from the Seahawks to replace the two years he has left on his current pact or any added money. He will be receiving “financial concessions” on his current deal, however. Those concessions are not spelled out, but could involve the Seahawks waiving the nearly $500,000 in fines that Lynch has accrued during his absence from the team.

Lynch’s return should allow the Seahawks to return to business as usual on offense, although there’s a chance that Christine Michael will see more time in the backfield this season as Seattle begins to plan for a future without Beast Mode
