Former Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles thinks he’s worthy of the Hall of Fame.
Charles, who hasn’t officially retired, told TMZ that there is a “possibility” he’s played his last game.
If he’s done playing in the NFL, he’ll be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2024. Charles thinks he should get in.
“I mean, some of my numbers look way better than some people already in Canton,” Charles told TMZ. “I think what’s gonna definitely haunt me is not winning a Super Bowl but I hope that people can see what type of person I was from playing football, on the field and off the field.”
Over the course of his 11-year career, Charles averaged 5.38 yards per carry, the best for any RB in the history of the NFL.
“That tells you what type of player I was,” Charles added. “I gave it my all. Every time I touched the ball, I averaged six yards a carry basically.”
Charles’ best season came in 2013 when he led the NFL with 19 total TDs and 1,980 yards from scrimmage.
However, his career was peppered with injuries as he only started 10+ games three times.
The four-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All Pro only had five seasons with 1000+ rushing yards. There’s no denying that Charles was a top level RB when healthy, but in the other six seasons of his career, he never reached 400 rushing yards.
He spent 2017 with the Broncos and had a short stint with the Jaguars in 2018.
