Charles was a third-round pick out of Texas in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Chiefs.

You knew the Jacksonville Jaguars would add another running back or two to their depleted running back situation.

After losing tailback Corey Grant to a season-ending Lisfranc injury, it was clear the Jacksonville Jaguars would be making a move at his position as T.J. Yeldon and Brandon Wilds were their only healthy options.

Charles, 31, saw limited duty with the Broncos last season, logging 296 rushing yards for one touchdown and averaging 4.3 yards per carry.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Jaguars are adding one of the most effective running backs in National Football League history, but don't expect Jamaal Charles to take over as the No. 1 tailback. Schefter adds that Charles was waiting for an offer from a contending team before resuming his career. There's a possibility he finds more room to run in Jacksonville, which is averaging 111 rushing yards per game and 4.5 yards per rushing attempt.

Charles gives the Jaguars a player who can handle 10-15 touches per game.

Per Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com, "Charles became the leading rusher in Chiefs history (7,260 yards) despite a series of knee injuries. He had four seasons with at least 40 receptions".

Charles was a four-time Pro Bowler during his nine seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Jaguars (3-2) will head to Dallas to face the Cowboys (2-3) on Sunday.

Charles has had some health concerns in the past of his own.
