The Jacksonville Jaguars have released running back Jamaal Charles. He signed with the team earlier in the month.

The Jaguars acquired running back Carlos Hyde in a trade with the Cleveland Browns. Jacksonville gave up a 2019 fifth-round draft pick in the deal.

Hyde will take the spot of Charles, who was backing up T.J. Yeldon. The former Alabama Crimson Tide back became the starter as Leonard Fournette continues to deal with a hamstring injury.

Charles had just six carries for seven yards with the Jaguars. He also had two receptions for seven yards.

The 31-year-old — who will turn 32-years-old on December 27th — will have a hard-time getting employment elsewhere. His NFL career may be coming to an end.

Charles has not been a good player since the 2014 season when he had 1,033 rushing yards on 206 carries. He also had nine touchdowns that season.

Since then, he has had just 707 yards over four seasons. He had 364 yards during the 2015 season with the Kansas City Chiefs.

In his career in Kansas City, he had 103 appearances and made 69 starts. He had 7,260 yards and 43 touchdowns.

He has appeared in just 16 games after playing for the Chiefs. Besides his two-game stint with the Jaguars, he also played in 14 games with the Denver Broncos in 2017.

Charles had 69 carries for 296 yards and a touchdown with the Colorado-based team.
