Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman, the lead blocker on so many of Jamaal Charles’ carries, hasn’t asked for a cut of Charles’ new contract extension worth about $8 million for this year.

But Sherman takes pride in his role in helping Charles lead the AFC in rushing and the NFL with 19 touchdowns last year.

“Absolutely,” said Sherman, who is in the final year of a contract that will pay him $645,000 this season. “He’s one of the greatest running backs in the game right now. I think it’s just an awesome experience to be with him and watch him work on a day-to-day basis.

“He has one of the greatest work ethics around. He comes in day-in, day-out, it doesn’t matter if he’s making $8 million or $1 million, he comes in and works every single day with everything he has left in him.”
