Jamaal Charles' agent posts rehab video of free agent rusher

Free agent running back Jamaal Charles' (knee) agent, David Mulugheta, posted a rehab video of his client on Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

Mulugheta is Charles' agent and posted a rehab video of his client working out on Monday. In the caption, Mulugheta wrote: "With Jamal Charles, it's not a matter of 'IF' but a matter of 'WHEN!'" Accompanied by the Twitter hashtag, "comeback season." In the video, Charles is performing drills on his surgically repaired knee. It appears that the 30-year-old running back, who has garnered minimal interest on the free agent market, is not considering retirement and will play in 2017 -- if he finds a willing suitor.

Jamaal Charles to visit Seahawks Wednesday

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting free agent running back Jamaal Charles will visit with the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday and Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

The Seahawks will visit with or have already hosted free agent running backs Eddie Lacy and Adrian Peterson. Add Charles to that list. He will visit with the team Wednesday going into Thursday per Schefter. It appears that the Seahawks are unhappy with their current running back situation, which explains why they are hosting the trio of savvy NFL veteran rushers. C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls have a combined three years of NFL experience and are already labeled injury-prone. Adding Charles, Lacy or Peterson could bolster a Seahawks rushing attack that was once the bread and butter of their offense.

Jamaal Charles to visit Seahawks

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting there is a "mutual interest" between the Seattle Seahawks and running back Jamaal Charles. Rapoport later added that Charles will meet with the club when he begins visiting teams.

Fantasy Impact

Aside from a small rumor that Charles could land with the Eagles due to their need at running back and his rapport with head Coach Doug Pederson from their days in Kansas City, there has not been very many suitors breaking down the door for his services. However, on Thursday morning, Rapoport said that Charles and the Seahawks have a "mutual interest." The Seahawks, who already have Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise set to open the 2017 season as the team's one-two punch in the backfield, could be in the mix to sign the all-time leading rusher in Chiefs' history. Both Rawls and Prosise are coming off of injury-stricken years in 2016. And for Rawls, he's been in and out of the lineup with multiple injuries since his rookie year in 2015. If Charles lands in Seattle, he could have a featured role if his health remains intact. With free agency set to open at 4 pm Thursday, Charles could begin to see more action once the running back market begins to take shape.

Jamaal Charles released by Kansas City

The Kansas City Chiefs are releasing running back Jamaal Charles on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

In an unexpected, but not surprising move, the Chiefs are parting ways with Charles. The 30-year-old running back is coming off of his second career ACL tear, but when healthy, he is still a productive rusher in the NFL. Charles will have a solid market in free agency and should have no issue finding a suitor for 2017.

Jamaal Charles could be pursued by Eagles this offseason

ESPN's Tim McManus believes the Philadelphia Eagles could pursue running back Jamaal Charles if he is released by the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs could part ways with Charles this offseason, especially since they signed fellow running back C.J. Spiller last week. In that scenario, Charles would become a free agent and would likely have a number of teams willing to take a chance on his services. Charles, 30, is coming off of the second ACL tear of his nine-year career in 2016 and would likely take an incentive based deal to sign with another club this offseason. Expect the Eagles to make a run at Charles if he is indeed released as they are in need of a boost at the running back position. Charles would also be a good fit with Philadelphia due to his past relationship with head coach Doug Pederson. Charles and Pederson spent three seasons together when the latter was Kansas City's offensive coordinator from 2013-to-2015.
