Denver Broncos OTAs day one updates and intrigue
To say it’s crazy to see Jamaal Charles in a Denver Broncos jersey is an understatement. For so many years now, Charles has been doing everything in his power to beat the Broncos, though the Chiefs haven’t been overly successful at that in his time there.
Coming off of a torn ACL in 2015, Charles set out to prove he could come back quickly and get going early on in the 2016 season. He didn’t further damage his ACL, but knew he came back too soon, and shut it down for the rest of the year.
After signing with the Broncos, it was clear that the plan for Charles would be to take things slowly. He did some work off to the side at day one of OTAs and will continue to recover and work slowly as he moves toward a target return of training camp.
Charles is in Denver on an incentivized contract, one that only puts the Broncos out $100,000 if he doesn’t make the final roster. If he can perform at a high level, he can make close to $4 million.
His recovery will be one of the top storylines to watch all offseason.
