One year after amusingly burying Dwayne Bowe deep in his doghouse, Chiefs coach Todd Haley has undertaken a more subtle motivation ploy. Charles opened training camp as the team’s backup to Thomas Jones.
There are a few reasons for this, primary among them Charles’ shoulder surgery that sidelined him for most of the offseason. But the key to the Chiefs offense is healthy now, and Haley likely wants him to be hungry again after establishing himself last year.
“That’s coaching,” Haley said to the Kansas City Star. “I’m not real interested in any of these
guys being real comfortable. Maybe down the road when we’re a real good
team and some real good things are happening.”
