The AFC West just got a little more contemptuous.

The Denver Broncos signed former Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles to a one-year contract, the team announced Tuesday. The deal is worth up to $3.75 million, a source told NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The 30-year-old had reportedly been expected to sign with the team pending a physical. Charles is coming off an ACL tear from 2015 that kept him from making a solid contribution during the 2016 season.

Charles had spent his entire nine-year career with the Chiefs, producing five 1,000-yard rushing seasons and earning four Pro Bowl appearances.

The Broncos will bring Charles in to compete for touches with veteran C.J. Anderson, 2016 draft pick Devontae Booker, and 2017 draft pick De’Angelo Henderson. He will most likely see time as a third-down back, but he’ll have to prove he can stay healthy through training camp before securing a role.

Charles’ first chance to show his old team what they missed out on will come during Week 8, when the Broncos travel to Kansas City for a Monday night matchup.
