Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid plans to use star running back Jamaal Charles in multiple ways. He will use Charles in a similar way to the way he used Brian Westbrook with the Philadelphia Eagles.
FoxSportsKansasCity.com reports that the Chiefs are aligning Charles in various positions this offseason. Reid and offensive coordinator Doug Pederson are moving Charles all around the formation.
The dynamic runner is being lined up in pistol and read-option looks, as well as the pro-set in the West Coast offense. When he is not in the backfield, Charles is being split out as a wide receiver.
It is a smart move by the Chiefs to find multiple uses for Charles. It is hard to believe the previous regimes did not do the same.
Charles has awesome multipurpose potential. He caught only 37 passes in 2012, but Charles is a more than capable receiver.
