The Kansas City Chiefs are making sure their stable of running backs is locked and loaded for the 2016 NFL season. With Jamaal Charles still expected to be the featured back, the team has decided to go ahead and hand out contract extensions to both Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West.
NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport broke the numbers on Ware’s deal.

Ware rushed for 403 yards and six touchdowns in 2015, while West totaled 634 yards and four touchdowns, while also catching 20 passes for 214 yards and an additional score. It’s safe to say that the Chiefs will have plenty of running backs on their roster next season.
