Jamaal Charles Insists New Contract Include Stipulation He Never Has To See Andy Reid Naked In Shower Again
KANSAS CITY – Superstar running back Jamaal Charles reported to Chiefs training camp Wednesday after ending a brief holdout, the primary sticking point of which was Charles’ insistence that he never again be subjected to the sight of 360 lb. Kansas City head coach Andy Reid naked in the team’s locker room showers, according to sources close to the 7th year player.
“We’re pleased to report that Jamaal’s contract dispute has been resolved to all parties’ satisfaction,” said Chiefs G.M John Dorsey. “As a general rule, our franchise does not renegotiate player contracts mid–term. But in this case, we found Jamaal’s fears of having to shower within eyesight of Coach Reid to be not only reasonable, but also just quite justified, and we were happy to rework his deal to include the necessary clauses.”
Added Dorsey: “When I asked Jamaal if he also wanted a higher salary, or additional signing bonus cash, he said, ‘No, I’m just mainly concerned about the shower thing.’”
Dorsey told reporters that steps were being taken immediately to adhere to the terms of Charles’ new contract.
“Jamaal and the rest of the team will continue to shower in the locker room as they always have,” Dorsey said. “But from now on, Andy will have a special, custom designed pen just outside next to the parking lot, where one of our unpaid interns will scrub him down after each game with this really long brush we bought from the Ringling Brothers people.”
