Jason O. Wastson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles’ contract dispute with the team was short lived: ESPN is reporting that Charles will report to training camp after he and the team agreed on a two-year contract extension.
Charles did not report to training camp on Wednesday at Missouri Western State University, but he is on his way to camp now that a deal has been reached.
His original deal had two years remaining on it, but his new deal runs through 2017. The new arrangement will pay Charles $18.1 million for the additional two years. He will make an extra $5.1 million over the next two seasons, including a $4.4 million raise this year.
The 27-year-old Charles is arguably one of the biggest offensive weapons in the NFL. This past season for the Chiefs, he ran for 1,287 yards, had 70 catches for 693 yards, and scored 19 total touchdowns in 2013.
He also provided a league-high 35.3 percent of the team’s yards from scrimmage, and has a career average of 5.6 yards per carry.

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(NEW YORK) – The NFL suspended Kansas City Chiefs’ Rokevious Watkins for the first four games of the 2014 season for a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy. The reserve offensive lineman will not receive pay during his suspension.
Watkins will be allowed to partake in training camp and preseason games with the suspension beginning on Sept. 7 when the Chiefs open the year at home against Tennessee. Watkins will also miss games against Denver (9/14), Miami (9/21), and New England (9/29). He is eligible to return following the Monday night game against the Patriots.
After playing three games last season, starting one for Kansas City, Watkins was competing for a backup role with the Chiefs. Three offensive lineman have been signed away as free agents in the offseason.

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — Brandon Flowers, Pro Bowl corner for Kansas City, was released by the team on Friday. Flowers had started for each of the past six seasons for the Chiefs.
Flowers had not been attending offseason practices with the Chiefs, causing many to speculate that he was not happy with the franchise. The cornerback took to twitter on Friday saying “thanks to the Hunt family for the 6 years in Kansas City”.
“We appreciate Brandon’s contributions to the team over the last six seasons,” a statement released from new general manager John Dorsey said. “It’s in the best interest of the club and the player to part ways at this time. We wish him nothing but the best as he continues his career.”
Marcus Cooper has replaced Flowers in the starting lineup during offseason workouts.
