The Kansas City Chiefs have made the move that everyone expected to come a lot earlier as they have now signed their two runningback stars from last year to contract extensions.

Week five of the 2015 regular season and the Chiefs go 1-4 and lose their star offensive player when runningback Jamaal Charles suffers a season ending injury.

The Replacements

In true story book fashion, the Chiefs would go on to lose one more game the following week before winning 10 straight to earn themselves a spot in the play-offs.


Should the Chiefs trade Jamaal Charles to another team? Have your say by signing up now to become a GMS writer:

It could be said that a lot of that success came down to the back- up runningbacks who showed their quality in Charles' absence.

Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West helped ensure that the Chiefs would have a memorable season when all else looked bleak for them.

West and Ware would combine to make the Chiefs the play-off team they became and today they were given their reward.

Both West and Ware were brought to Kansas and were given contract extensions to their deals meaning that they'll be in Kansas for the foreseeable future.

While Chiefs fans will be elated to hear that the services of two of their top stars from last year have been secured, there is one big question that is left to be answered?

Will the Chiefs now keep Charles and if they do, will he remain as the starter?

Odd man out

Charles has been the main star in Kansas City for a long time but with Ware and West getting the chance to show what they can do, his role as the sole starting runningback could be under threat.

Charles is still an elite runningback and could be worth their weight in gold for any team eager to get their hands on him.

The Chiefs could certainly demand a huge price for Charles if they did try to trade him away and opt to put their faith in their newly found runningback committee.

The announcement of new contracts for Ware and West could very well start a chain of events that changes the entire NFL.
