Report: Jamaal Charles expected to visit Seahawks

Reports this week say the Seahawks aren’t interested in pursuing Adrian Peterson as a free agent, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are averse to all veteran running backs with a history of knee injuries.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the there is mutual interest between the Seahawks and former Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles. Charles was released by the Chiefs in late February.

Per the report, Charles is expected to visit the Seahawks when he begins taking trips to meet with potential employers. It’s not clear when that might be, but it’s the first team we’ve heard linked with a visit from Charles since he was dumped on the market by Kansas City.

The Seahawks have Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise coming back in 2017 and Charles has played eight games in the last two seasons, so he wouldn’t be sliding into the kind of lead role he played in his best days with the Chiefs. His receiving skills could be a particularly useful addition to the Seattle offense, though, and it would give Charles a chance to join a team with designs on a deep playoff run.

    He would be on a team that could go to the Super Bowl in any given year for the near future. He could be a very good situational player if he can stay healthy.

    doesn’t seem like a good fit for either side to be honest

    I only want him if he gains 150 pounds, grows 8-11″ taller, and switches to offensive line.

    Charles makes a ton more sense for the Hawks than AP. Could be awesome if they can address the line too. We shall see.

    Go HAWKS

    This would be a good fit for Charles. He is a good young man. Chiefs just never put enough other weapons around him. Good luck to him where ever he ends up.

    Interesting. Not a fan of bringing a big name skill position player in, but I’ve always been a fan of Jamall Charles. When healthy he’s one of the best backs in the league.

    5 picks in the top 106…one of those will be another running back. Book it. Not sure a veteran fa rb would make the roster.

    Everyone talks about how bad our line is, and in pass protection it is an absolute dumpster fire, but it’s one of the better team in run protection I’m not sure he has anything left but if he does I think it will be a great place for him he has Wilson as the qb and Rawls to spell him, might get one more good year out of him.
