KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is set to announce his retirement from the National Football League after 11 seasons and will sign a one-day contract with the Chiefs to retire with his old team.

Charles, 32, is the franchise's all-time leading rusher with 7,260 yards, and played nine seasons for the Chiefs after being selected in the third round (73rd overall) of the 2008 NFL draft. Charles was also a four-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time first-team All-Pro with Kansas City.

The Chiefs released Charles in 2017 after two ACL injuries, with his first one in 2011 and second in 2015, he missed a significant amount of time due to knee soreness after his second injury in '15 and '16. He then played for Denver and Jacksonville.

Charles throughout his injuries finishes his career with 7,563 yards, 56th on the NFL's all-time rushing list. His career average of 5.4 yards per carry is ranked first all-time among rushers with at least 1,000 carries.

If you are looking for a nice day, that day will be Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s. The nice weather will be short lived as storms return to the forecast late Wednesday through the long Memorial Day holiday weekend.
