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, ESPN.com 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.
Jamaal Charles is scheduled to earn $3.9M this year, less than 13 other NFL RBs & about 1/3 of what Adrian Peterson ($12M) will make.— Brian McIntyre (@brian_mcintyre) July 22, 2014
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.
