Since 2001, Todd Bartusek has served as a realtor at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. Outside of work, Todd Bartusek enjoys supporting the Kansas City Chiefs, which recently announced the release of running back Jamaal Charles to free agency. Charles sustained a knee injury during the 2015 season, complications from which had been limiting his playing time, according to reports.

During this nine-year career with the Chiefs, Jamaal Charles rushed for 7,260 yards, beating the previous team record of 6,070 yards set by Priest Holmes.

Another team record set by Charles was the longest touchdown rush, when he ran 91 yards to score against the New Orleans Saints in 2012. During the same season, he rushed for 86 yards for a touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts.

Over the course of his career with the Chiefs, Charles also recorded three 200-plus-yard games. He rushed for 259 yards against the Denver Bronco in 2009, 233 yards against the New Orleans Saints in 2012, and 226 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in 2012.

In terms of NFL records, Charles holds the record of yards per rushing attempt, with 5.5 yards over 1,332 career attempts.
