The Denver Broncos added Jamaal Charles, signing him to a one-year contract after he spent most of Tuesday with the team. Charles was examined thoroughly by Denver’s team doctors before signing. John Elway has now added Charles after signing Bernard Pierce and drafting De’Angelo Henderson. Denver also traded Kapri Bibbs to the San Francisco 49ers last weekend.

Charles is a dynamic running back that has quick feet, illusive, and capable of making big plays. The Broncos have stated that they would like to use him in a more situational role.  Charles averages 5.5 yards per carry, which is the best average in NFL history with over 1000 touches. If he can stay healthy, Charles will be a threat and could open up the game for the receivers.

Charles has had knee problems recently and missed most of the past two seasons. He was cleared to play last season but had some lingering knee issues that sidelined him after only playing three games. Charles became expendable after the emergence of Spencer Ware and Tyreek Hill. The Kansas City Chiefs also signed C.J. Spiller and drafted Kareem Hunt.

Charles will join a Denver backfield that also includes C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker. Anderson is expected to be the top back going into the season with Booker as the team’s number two. Charles could potentially be used in many different ways, such as out of the slot or in long down situations. Denver is poised to have a running back battle during training camp along with its quarterback battle.

The Broncos backfield is sure to garner attention from the league with the signing Jamaal Charles. If he can stay healthy, the Broncos could take a big step to an improved offense.  Things are getting interesting in Broncos’ country after an under the radar offseason.

I’m a Denver, Colorado native that loves almost all sports. I have a beautiful daughter that means the world to me and she also loves to watch sports. Sometimes I can be very opinionated when debating or discussing sports, but if you love a team you will definitely debate it out to the fullest. I like to be adventurous and experience the outdoors, play sports with friends, golf when I have the time and experience new foods and activities. I also want to visit other ballparks and stadiums to support Colorado teams and experience the culture at those venues. So feel free to debate or discuss sports with me anytime even if we don’t agree.
