Though Chiefs running Jamaal Charles had a phenomenal season in 2012, rushing for 1,509 yards, he was even better last year, gaining 1,980 yards from scrimmage and scoring 19 total touchdowns.

Clearly, Charles is the most important offensive player in Kansas City, and now he wants to be paid like one.

Charles is scheduled to make a base salary of $2.65 million for 2014 to go with a $1 million roster bonus, but according to KCTV 5, Charles won't report to training camp and instead will hold out for more money.

Conversely, says the two sides are discussing a new contract but that the Chiefs expect Charles to report on time Wednesday and to begin practicing Thursday.

The Kansas City Star also wrote that the Chiefs expect to see Charles on Wednesday.

In 2010, Charles signed a six-year deal worth nearly $28 million -- not bad money -- but think about it this way.

In the final year of his deal in 2015, Charles currently is scheduled to make a $4.75 million base salary with another $1 million roster bonus.
