Jamaal Charles visiting the Broncos tomorrow

The Broncos were reportedly interested in making a move Thursday to get into position for Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey.

When that didn’t happen, they started looking at other explosive, versatile runners.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, former Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is visiting the Broncos Tuesday.

It’s an interesting fit at a number of levels, not the least of which is him potentially staying in the AFC West.

But at 30 years old and coming off a major knee injury, it’s hard to imagine Charles as an every-down back again. The Broncos wouldn’t necessarily need that from him, as they have C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker on hand.

Assuming he recovers physically, it would be a major get for whichever quarterback ends up winning the starting job, either Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian.

  1. “Assuming he recovers physically, it would be a major get for whichever quarterback ends up winning the starting job, either Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian.”

    Or now that he’s been released and is available Zach Mettenbrger if the Broncos decide to upgrade.

  2. As a reasonable Chiefs fan, I’d hate for him to go there but we cut him so more power to him! And if he’s a mere 80% of his former self, he’s still better than anyone KC has on the roster. Part of me is still holding hope for him to come back but clearly both parties have moved on.

    I want to see him succeed, just preferably not within the AFC West, like Neil Smith, Donnie Edwards, Rich Gannon did.

  3. “As a Chiefs fan, I Love Jamall Charles, but if he signs with Denver, he is a traitor.”

    So if his only choice to make millions is the Broncos or nobody you’d really hold it against him if he went to Denver?

    Pretty shallow thinking when that kind of money is in play.

  4. Elway may have had his troubles with some of his early round draft picks but he’s been outstanding in free agency, both for rookies and vets.

    In this case, he can get gain a good risk/reward ratio because Charles can’t command a lot of money, except in incentives.

  5. Do it!! Trevor will look a LOT better if he doesn’t have to win every game on his own, like last year! And believe me, Trevor Siemian is the next Joe Montana.

    I was with you right up to that last part…there is no “next Joe Montana”.

    Not often I agree with a fan of the Chefs, but this comment is spot on. Would be like Raiders fans hoping for Marcus Allen to tear it up for the Chefs. Not happening.

  7. Trevor is the next Joe Montana oh my, another hopeful Denver fan lol!! Jamal Charles was released for a reason and it was injury history he can not stay healthy so good luck Denver!

  8. Charles would make a perfect third down specialist, something the Broncos really haven’t had since Steve Sewell in the 1980’s.

    Not even close, die hared Broncos fan. Lets see him get us to playoffs before we start comparing him to GOATS.

  10. Hope he signs there. He is a cancer, looking to place blame for his own errors.

    Two fumbles against the Broncos costing the Chiefs a division title. Let him achieve the same there.

  11. Jamal should just go somewhere he gets to play every down. Do his thing and show everyone he still has it.

    Then sign for another big pay day and break the all time yards per carry record.

  12. It seems just like yesterday, Denver was one of the best franchises in the NFL. Now they are a butt of many jokes.

  13. This Broncos fan wants Charles in Orange and Blue. If his knees are good to go, welcome to the Mile High City Jamaal. No questions as to whether he can break a long run, or screen, in the NFL and it would be enjoyable to watch opposing defenses suck the thin air trying to chase him down in the 4th quarter. Especially, if the opponents are wearing Chief’s/Patriot’s gear. Welcome home Jamaal!

  14. Excepting the roster space, it’s hurt to see how signing him would be a detriment…
