Charles had 259 carries for 1,289 yards and 12 touchdowns and 70 catches for 693 yards and seven touchdowns in his first year playing for Reid.
"He still surprised me that he could catch that well," Reid said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. "He’s like a wide receiver out there running routes, all those things. He does it so easy. ... I saw progress all the way through the season, whether it was just subtleties in the run game or the blocking scheme, the route running. We were able to expand his package as we went. I think he'll just continue on."
“As long as I can continue to do those things in my five years, it would be amazing. I’d just look back and just call it quits.”
“Knile was a rookie and he was learning every week and getting better every week," Reid said, per ESPN.com. "As the season went on we were able to give him the ball a little bit more. Coming into this season, we’ll be able to mix it up a little bit better than what we did early in the season last year."
Davis got 81 touches last season. He ran for four touchdowns but averaged just 3.5 yards per carry.
Charles was especially surprised to be hit by teammate Derrick Johnson. Johnson managed to win defensive MVP for his performance during the game. Charles was coming off a concussion he suffered during a playoff loss to the Colts. Despite being hit harder than expected, Charles came out of the Pro Bowl healthy.
"I didn't expect it, but he's out there doing his thing," said Charles, who got knocked out of Kansas City's Jan. 4 playoff loss with a concussion. "I can't get mad at him -- it's just about football, and you've just got to be ready."
Johnson lowered his shoulder and blasted Charles in his shoulder/head area, the report said. The game's defensive MVP, Johnson said he would never try to hurt a teammate and that he was merely trying to "compete a little bit."
