is reporting that Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles may hold out from camp while seeking a new contract from the team.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Charles may not show up at the start of training camp while the team works on a new deal with his representatives, according to a source close to the situation. The Chiefs have known for some time that Charles was highly unlikely to play for them in 2014 on his current deal.
The two sides have talked about a new contract, which would solve the issue. At this point, whether he shows up or not appears predicated on the progress on a new contract.
Charles signed a six-year deal in 2010 worth nearly $28 million.
