1. Jamaal Charles
It wasn’t easy for the Kansas City Chiefs to release Jamaal Charles after nine seasons, but at the end of the day, the organization knew it was a necessary move from a business perspective. Thanks to devastating injuries, Charles was limited to appearing in just eight games over the last two seasons, and when looking at the type of money the Chiefs would have to pay him in 2017, it simply wasn’t worth the money.
The verdict is still out there when it comes to the type of impact Charles can still have despite all of these injuries from the last two seasons, but the good news is there will most likely be a handful of teams willing to take the risk at a bargain price. Even if there’s the slightest chance of Charles returning to his Pro Bowl form a few years ago, it’s not even a debate that he would be worth the risk for the Los Angeles Rams.
Experienced veterans like Charles that used to be one of the most dominant players in the league don’t often come around at a reduced price like the Rams would be able to sign him for. And who knows, maybe Charles would find a way to stay healthy enough to give Los Angeles the chance to have quite the dynamic duo in the backfield alongside Todd Gurley.
