A fierce competitor at the TE position, Charles play offense with a defensive mentality. Has developed into a more well-rounded TE in his new scheme, and has become a viable receiving option. Is a high-energy guy, and leads by example. Outstanding work ethic and coach-ability will get him on the field early for Special Teams and will give him a chance to contribute early on offense. Impeccable character is a bonus--Burke Hayes
