Jamaal Charles doesn’t sign with Seahawks, and another team may emerge

The Seahawks’ vision of a veteran version of a Thunder and Lightning backfield has temporarily been put on hold.

Running back Jamaal Charles had a good visit in Seattle, as a source with knowledge of the situation explained it to PFT. However, Charles will not be signing there, for now. Earlier this week, the Seahawks signed former Packers tailback Eddie Lacy.

Charles also may be visiting another team next week. For now, the identity of that franchise isn’t known.

Early speculation following Kansas City’s decision to release Charles centered on the Eagles and the Colts.

    A speed back with no knees? He’s a disappointing 2017 away from retirement

    Charles’ talks with the one-year dynasty hit an impasse when it was clear he couldn’t play offensive line.

    If he’s signed anywhere, he’ll respond will a subpar and shortened season.

    J.C. was cut a year later than he should have been. Priest Holmes has a better chance of getting signed than this clown!

    In other words, he was offered a low ball, one year contract and thinks he still may find a team that will offer much more money. He doesn’t want a one year “prove it” contract, but may find that’s all that is in the cards for him.

    He would be a perfect fit on the Patriots.

    Worst case – stay in shape & wait for RB injuries during camp – won’t get huge $$ but will def get a job, especially if a playoff caliber team has a RB go down.

    The Eagles probably can’t sign Charles because of their salary cap problems (I doubt if he’d sign for the veteran minimum). So they can probably be ruled out. Now that I’ve said that, watch him sign with the Eagles tomorrow 🙂
