    Default Contract with Jamaal Charles.

    I feel like we need to reward JC with a new contract. I fear if we do it, don't do it until it is time, things could become a mess and end up like the Johnson case.

    What do you think?

    I think part of the reason the running back who shouldn't be named, problem is he was making to much Bloody Money.

    But on the other hand, if we reward him a little now, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Did a google search on his contract status. Copy/paste from rotoworld.com:

    7/21/2008: Signed a three-year, $1.760 million contract. The deal included a $610,000 signing bonus. 2009: $385,000, 2010: $470,000, 2011: Restricted Free Agent


    If this is correct, I say we make him the starter for 2010 at the chicken feed due under his current contract. But it should be made perfectly clear by the organization, "if your play in 2010 matces or exceeds that of the last half 2009, the you sir shall be greatly rewarded."

    LJ and JC seem to be polar opposites of each other in terms of personality. I watched JC's postgame interview yesterday, he comes off as a very humble young man who loves to play football. Humble is the last word I would use to describe LJ at any point in his career.

    I have no problem whatsoever rewarding JC. He just turned 23, he has low mileage, a very bright future, and he strikes me as a good all around kid. LJ was coming off of a 416 carry season and was 28 when he signed his big deal I believe. If there's 1 player on the entire team I want to see here 4 years from now, it's him. And it's not even close.

    I'm sure they'll wait until he's a RFA before they give him a new one. Keep it cheap while you can, and then definitely reward him next year if he keeps up this play.

    I think if Charles was anything like LJ then he will end up with a same exit from the Chiefs locker room. I dont think he is anything like LJ and Dont think it would ever get as ugly as LJ

    but it would be nice to lock him up for a long long time. hopefuly he is a chiefs for life.

    The amount of yards really doesn't matter, its all about scoring. If you run 98 yards and cant score, your pretty much worth less.

    Based upon Charles 'humble' personality...I don't believe he will ever be comparible to LJ, regardless of JC's success in the NFL. Those types of personalities are set in stone, and they rarely change to one of narcissism, such as LJ's.

    That said, I believe he will always play with heart, regardless of his success and pay level. Whatever it takes to keep him a Chief...I'm for that! hahaha
