    Jamaal Charles Biography

    Jamaal Charles is a dynamic Running Back for the Kansas City Chiefs. Charles has spent his entire NFL career with the Chiefs, but his career is declining due to multiple knee injuries.

    High School Career

    Jamaal was a two-sport star at Memorial High School in Port Arthur, Texas. He rushed for over 2,000 yards in both his junior and senior seasons. He was named District Player of the Year and Parade All-American. In track, Jamaal won the state hurdle title during his senior year.

    College Career

    Jamaal headlined the 2005 recruiting class for the University of Texas. He split carries his freshman season when Texas won the National Title and also during his sophomore college season. But, during his junior year, Jamaal was the leader of Texas' running attack.

    As a junior, Jamaal rushed for 1,619 yards and 18 TDs. Included was one of the highlights of his college career when he rushed for 290 total yards against Nebraska. 216 of those yards were in the fourth quarter when he scored three TDs and ripped an 86-yard TD run.

    2008 NFL Draft

    Jamaal declared early for the NFL Draft, foregoing his senior season at Texas. After becoming one of the all-time leading rushers in Longhorns history, he thought he would be drafted high in the 2008 NFL Draft. However, he fell to the Chiefs in the third round.

    At the NFL Combine, Charles used his superior track skills in the 40-yard dash. Jamaal's 40 time was 4.38 seconds, which ranked #4 among RBs. But, his vertical leap was only 30.5, which was barely in the Top 20 among RBs. He did not "wow" scouts and was the ninth RB selected in the Draft.

    2008 Rookie NFL Season

    Jamaal signed a three-year contract with the Chiefs. His base salary was $470,000 with a $200,000 signing bonus. He was the third-string RB, but broke through for a 100-yard game midway through the season.

    2009 NFL Season

    Jamaal went from 2 to 10 starts in his second season. He also gained more than 1,000 yards rushing with 8 total TDs. His growth put him on the map with NFL fans and Fantasy Football owners.

    2010 NFL Season

    Jamaal exploded for 1,467 rushing yards in 2010. He scored a total of 8 TDs and made his first Pro Bowl. This also earned him a new contract with the Chiefs.

    2011 NFL Season

    Before his fourth season, Jamaal signed a five-year deal worth $32.5 million. The contract paid him $3.35 million in 2011, which was quite the jump from his $470,000 rookie salary. However, Jamaal tore his knee in Week 2 and missed the rest of 2011.

    2012 NFL Season

    Jamaal bounced back with the best rushing stats of his career. He rushed for 1,509 yards, scored six total TDs, and made his second Pro Bowl. One of the highlights of his NFL career was an amazing 91-yard TD showing off his track speed.

    2013 NFL Season

    Jamaal dipped to 1,287 rushing yards, but he jumped to 693 receiving yards. He had a breakout Fantasy Football season with nearly 2,000 total yards and 19 total TDs. He made the Pro Bowl for the second straight year and was named first-team NFL All-Pro.

    2014 NFL Season

    2012 and 2013 were Jamaal's peak years, as his rushing and receiving yards dropped. He totaled 14 TDs, though, and made his third straight Pro Bowl. He also received a contract extension that made him the second-highest paid NFL RB.

    2015 NFL Season

    Jamaal tore his knee again during the 2015 season. He finished with only 364 rushing yards and five total TDs.

    2016 NFL Season

    Jamaal's season never really got started. After trying to recover from knee surgery, he only played three games and was shut down again. He finished with 54 total yards and one TD.

    Personal Life

    Jamaal is an advocate of childhood literacy and does a lot of community work to promote his cause. His Twitter handle is @JCharles25. On Twitter, he talks about the Chiefs, connects with former Longhorns college teammates, and promotes literacy. His #25 jersey can be found in the NFL Team Shop.
