ST. JOSEPH, Mo--The full Kansas City Chiefs roster was on the practice fields at camp Thursday in St. Joseph.

It's the first day that all players are required to be at training camp.

And that included running back Jamaal Charles.

In our K.C. Blitz report, Charles and the Chiefs avoided a holdout by agreeing to a two year contract extension.

The deal reportedly is for $18 million dollars worth of new money going to Charles, making him the second highest paid running back in the NFL behind the Vikings Adrian Peterson.

Last season, Charles led the Chiefs in rushing and receiving yards and scored 19 touchdowns.

Both linebacker Justin Houston and quarterback Alex Smith are looking for new deals as well.

Both were in camp Thursday.

But the big prize was getting Jamaal Charles under contract.

"I just wanted to get the deal done.  I could have held out and got more money.  But I'm happy with what I have right now.  I just want to build something.  Build something here and build a championship.  I want to win a Super Bowl.  That's more than just holding out.  I don't want to be selfish like that," said Jamaal Charles.
