Jamaal Charles To Jaguars: Fantasy Impact Of Running Back’s Signing

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Jacksonville Jaguars are signing the four-time Pro Bowler to a one-year deal to help fill their injury depleted backfield.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly adding some running back depth today, with starter Leonard Fournette injured and a backup, Corey Grant, likely out for the season with an injury. Schefter adds that Charles was waiting for an offer from a contending team before resuming his career. Per Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post, that signing will be a member from the Denver Broncos' practice squad in David Williams, who is expected to sign with Jags Tuesday.

The Jaguars also brought in Charcandrick West for a workout before signing Charles.

The team hopes there is some tread left on his 31-year-old tires but is a solid move by the organization to find a player with experience as a lead back.

Career-wise, Charles has 1,401 rushes for 7,556 yards and 44 touchdowns to go along with 308 receptions for 2586 yards and 20 touchdowns.

For the season, he had 296 rushing yards with one touchdown. And once Fournette returns, we'd imagine Charles will become irrelevant again.

Charles is a four-time Pro Bowl selection, most recently in 2014 with the Chiefs. T.J. Yeldon started for Fournette in Sunday's game in Kansas City. He tore his right ACL in October 2015.

Jacksonville (3-2) will be back in action next Sunday against in Dallas against the Cowboys (2-3). It was the second time he suffered that injury.
