The Jacksonville Jaguars are bringing Kansas City Chiefs all-time leading rusher Jamaal Charles back to the NFL, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Charles, who compiled 7,260 rushing yards during his nine-year stint with Kansas City, last played for the Denver Broncos in 2017, when he had 69 rushes for 296 yards and a touchdown, while also catching 23 passes for 129 yards in 14 games played.

Schefter added that Charles had been waiting to sign with a contender, and the deal is for one year.

The Jaguars also reportedly worked out another former Chief, Charcandrick West, but they decided on Charles instead.

It would be an interesting scenario down the line if the Chiefs see the Jaguars in the playoffs and Charles is still a member of the team.
