KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) -- Jamaal Charles is coming home again – at least for a day.
The Kansas City Chiefs announced Wednesday the running back signed a one-day deal with the club, just so he could retire as a Chief.
“Congratulations of a phenomenal career,” the Chiefs said in a tweet announcing the move.
The four-time Pro Bowler spent nine seasons playing his home games at Arrowhead Stadium before leaving for the divisional rival Denver Broncos before the 2017 season. He played for the Jacksonville Jaguars last year.
As a Chief, Charles racked up more than 10,000 total rushing and receiving yards combined. He also tallied five 1,000 rushing yard seasons before injuries limited him to just eight games in his final two seasons in Kansas City
