Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles has reached a two-year contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs.

A person familiar with the contract said the deal will keep Charles in Kansas City through the 2017 season.

He spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the team has not disclosed details.

The six-year NFL veteran ran for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last year as the Chiefs reached the playoffs.

He also had 70 catches for 693 yards and seven more TDs as Kansas City went 11-5 before losing to Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game.
