One of the biggest burning questions at Denver Broncos camp, from fans to fantasy owners centers around running back Jamaal Charles. What does JC have left in the tank? The new Denver running back let them know at training camp.
“There isn’t any question I can still play. I know I can still play,” Jamaal said. “The main thing is knowing the playbook and controlling what I can control.”
So far, No. 28 is enjoying his new home in Denver with the Broncos, and he’s liking what the offense has to offer. But after getting his feet wet, Jamaal is ready to take the next step and start taking some hits.
“I told them I definitely want to do more,” JC said. “Right now, I’m happy with the system. They’re taking their time with me and I told them I want to do a little bit ‘thud’ (when players, wearing helmets and shoulder pads, hit but stay on their feet) and get hit. I want that, just to get my confidence up and see how my knee feels in pads and make people miss. Whatever they tell me to do, I’m just doing it day by day.”
On Monday morning, he even got to strap pads on for the first time, another step in the right direction for the running back, whose 5.5 yards per carry across a nine-year career ranks at the top of the all-time list for running backs.
