Chiefs' Taco Charlton: Lands in Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) has agreed to a one-year deal with the Chiefs, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

It did not take long for Charlton to find a home after getting let go by the Dolphins earlier this week. He led Miami with five sacks across 10 games (five starts) last season. His production did trail off toward the end of the season, which helps explain why the team opted to let him go and save roughly $1.8 million against the cap in 2020. The 25-year-old will now look for a fresh start with the newly crowned Super Bowls champs.

Taco Charlton: Parts ways with Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins waived Charlton (ankle) on Thursday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Charlton led the Dolphins with five sacks across 10 games (five starts) last season, after having been picked up off waivers from the Cowboys mid-September. Four of those sacks came in his first five games with the team, however, after which Charlton trailed off. Cutting the 25-year-old saves Miami roughly $1.8 million against the cap for 2020.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Manages five sacks in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) recorded 21 tackles (14 solo), five sacks and two forced fumbles across 10 regular-season games with the Dolphins in 2019.

Charlton was waived by the Cowboys mid-September and quickly claimed by Miami, where he managed to settle into a better groove. Though an ankle injury kept the 2017 first-round pick from concluding the 2019 campaign, the year was an overall step in the right direction as he notched a career high in sacks. Charlton should benefit from a full offseason to develop in the Dolphins' system.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: No-go for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's divisional matchup versus New England.

It will be the second straight contest missed for the Michigan product due to the ankle issue. With Charlton sidelined, look for Avery Moss and Zach Sieler to see a slight increase in snaps at the rotational defensive end role.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Could play season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Charlton missed Week 16 with the ankle injury but returned to practice as a limited participant this week. The 25-year-old figures to work in a rotational role Sunday if he's able to play.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Sitting out Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's Week 16 tilt against the Bengals.

Charlton was a limited participant in Friday's practice, but coach Brian Flores had indicated he still expected the defensive end to play. However, Charlton's condition may have taken a turn for the worse, given his surprise inactive status.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Questionable Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton has an ankle injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Charlton was absent from the injury report until appearing as a limited participant Friday, though coach Brian Flores said Charlton is still expected to play. The 25-year-old was a healthy scratch for Week 15, so it's not fully clear what role he'll be returning to, if healthy.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Surprise inactive Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 14 tilt against the Jets, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Charlton checks in as the Dolphins' leading sacker with five quarterback takedowns on the season, so the reason for his inactive status is a mystery, Beasley reports. First-round pick Christian Wilkins should see extra opportunity in Charlton's stead versus New York.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Notches strip sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton recorded two solo tackles, one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 37-31 win over the Eagles.

Charlton's strip sack proved a key play in Miami's victory, forcing the Eagles to settle for a field goal on the Dolphins' 13-yard line. The 2017 first-round pick should be considered a sack-dependent option in IDP leagues, given that he has a low floor as a run stopper during contests he's unable to reach the quarterback.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Suiting up Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (elbow) is active for Sunday's Week 12 tilt against the Browns.

Charlton was able to get through a week of limited practices and will now officially make his return after missing the Week 11 tilt against the Bills. The active pass rusher will look to help the Dolphins contain Baker Mayfield, who boasts a three-game turnover-less streak heading into Sunday.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Receives questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (elbow) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Charlton practiced as a limited practice participant this week to give himself a chance of suiting up Week 12. The 25-year-old was a game-time decision before ultimately being inactive last week against the Bills.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Inactive against Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (elbow) is listed as inactive Week 11 against Buffalo.

Charlton entered this contest as a game-time decision after practicing on a limited basis all week, but the third-year defensive end will ultimately be unable to give it a go. Look for John Jenkins and Christian Wilkins to be given all the reps they can handle on the defensive line as a result.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Deemed game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores said Friday that Charlton (elbow) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Bills, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Charlton has practiced in a limited capacity this week while nursing an elbow injury. The 2017 first-round pick has played at least 75 percent of snaps on defense in each of Miami's last five games, and he's accumulated four sacks since joining the team Week 3. If he is forced to miss any time, it will be a notable blow to the Dolphins' pass rush against Buffalo's solid offensive front.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Drops QB again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton notched a sack in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Steelers.

Charlton now has four sacks in five games for the Dolphins, surpassing his previous career high of three, which took him 16 games for the Cowboys in 2017. A main part of Charlton's success is his consistent playing time, as he's marked above a 90-percent snap share twice for the Dolphins.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Records third sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton had four tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Sacks in consecutive weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton finished Miami's 30-10 loss to the Chargers on Sunday with six tackles (four solo) and a sack.

Charlton was able to bring the opposing quarterback down for a sack Sunday, giving the third-year pro a sack in each of his first two games of 2019. Not on the field for the season's first two contests, Charlton has seen his role with the Dolphins increase over the past two weeks, playing 48 snaps in Week 4 after logging 30 snaps the previous week. Still yet to make a real impression in his NFL career, the 24-year-old defensive end is definitely trending in the right direction.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Gets sack in revenge game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton recorded two tackles (one solo) and one sack during Sunday's 31-6 loss to the Cowboys.

Charlton played 30 snaps on defense (42 percent) versus his former team. The 2017 first-round pick appears to have found success as a rotational player in Miami's defensive line and will work to impress again Week 4 versus the Chargers.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Lands in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins claimed Charlton off waivers Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Charlton was waived by Dallas on Wednesday after being inactive for the first two games of the season. The 2017 first-round pick now joins a rebuilding Dolphins squad and will work to rejuvenate his NFL career. Across 27 games with the Cowboys, Charlton accumulated just 46 tackles (28 solo), four sacks and one defended pass. He also forced one fumble in 2017 and recovered a fumble in 2018.

Taco Charlton: Let go by Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton was waived by the Cowboys on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Cowboys were hoping to move Charlton via trade, with Robert Quinn returning from his two-game suspension, but they were unable to. As a result, he has been cut loose. The 2017 first-round pick should garner some interest from around the league as a free agent.

Cowboys' Taco Charlton: Won't practice with Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton chose not to participate in Wednesday's practice as the Cowboys seek a trade, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

The Cowboys continue to listen to trade offers for Charlton, but the team is prepared to move on either way, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. This signals that the Cowboys would be comfortable releasing Charlton if the right deal doesn't present itself. Charlton has expressed his wishes to leave the team, and the Cowboys have plenty of depth at defensive end to be fine without him since Robert Quinn has been reinstated from suspension.
