Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles broke the franchise’s all-time rushing record in October 2014. He scored a 16-yard touchdown run against the San Diego Chargers to surpass the previous benchmark of 6,070, which now stands at 6,856 and counting. With nine touchdowns on the year, Charles helped Kansas City to achieve a 9-7 regular season record, finishing second to the Denver Broncos (12-4) in the American Football Conference (AFC) West Division.
Since the Chiefs drafted him in the third round of the 2008 NFL draft, he has carried the football 5.5 yards per attempt, which ranks above NFL Hall of Fame rusher Jim Brown for career gain average. Jamaal Charles’ current contract with the team extends through 2017.
