Well, looky here.

Jamaal Charles, a Denver Bronco? 

Charles, a four-time Pro Bowler with the Chiefs, will meet with John Elway and the Broncos on Tuesday, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

The Broncos could use the help. Adding the 30-year-old Charles would be a low-risk, high-reward move for the Broncos, whose backfield needs a jolt.

Preferably a healthy one: C.J. Anderson is coming off yet another injury, while Devontae Booker had a bum knee at Utah and wore down as an NFL rookie.

Can't hurt to take a peek at Charles. NFL tailbacks are often hurt.

Charles underwent a second knee surgery in November. The Broncos certainly have enough film on Charles, whose 186 carries and 987 yards are his most against any team. His 2016 season was three games where he averaged 3.3 yards per carry before shutting it down. The healthy Jamaal Charles, however, brings the kind of versatility the Broncos are looking for. Juice, as they put it.

I think they added a splash of juice during the draft.

Adrian Peterson scored a one-year, $3.5-million deal to join the Saints. It figures Charles would be around or below that number.

Marshawn Lynch to the Raiders? Jamaal Charles (maybe) to the Broncos?

Isn't the AFC West fun?
