Does Jamaal Charles Contract Dispute Reflect Major Issue with RB Deals?

Team Stream Now@@bleacherreportB/R VideoJuly 23, 2014

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles will not report to training camp on time, due to displeasure with his current contract, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Does Charles deserve to be paid more? Do running backs in general deserve contracts on par with some of their teammates at more high-profile positions? Does the NFL need a separate system for RB contracts that differs from the current salary-cap structure?

Watch as Adam Lefkoe and Bleacher Report NFL analyst Chris Simms discuss the future of running back contracts in the video above.
