Charles Looking Forward To More Catches

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- Jamaal Charles is looking forward to catch more passes under new Chiefs coach Andy Reid.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo.  -- The Kansas City Chiefs got a break from training camp Wednesday, which was nice after three full days of full-padded, full-bore practices under new coach Andy Reid.

That's been one of the many changes in St. Joseph.

Another change you can expect with Reid's new offense is running backs catching the football.

Reid had success with that in Philadelphia with Brian Westbrook and Lesean McCoy, and he's got one heck of a weapon in Kansas City with Jamaal Charles.

Charles set career highs in rushing attempts and yards last year, but his receiving numbers dipped.

So he's looking forward to catching some more passes.

"Oh yeah, I feel comfortable with it," said Charles. "I'm glad I'm in an offense like this so I can show everybody what my versatility is. I can play running back and also I can go out and play wide receiver. I'm just excited to be in this offense. I'm making plays and I'll continue to make plays help my team win."

"He's capable of doing the same thing Westbrook did, that McCoy did as far as the pass game," Reid said. "He's a legitimate threat with his speed, his route running ability and with his hands. So he catches the ball very easy."
