The Chargers definitely aren’t done making moves this week.
Austin Ekeler and the Bolts have agreed on a four-year, $24.5 million deal keeping the running back in LA for the foreseeable future. The deal also includes a guaranteed $15 million, per ESPN.

This means the Chargers have officially committed to Ekeler as a main piece of their offense going forward, solidifying one of the most versatile and electric players in the country as a weapon for whomever ends up under center in 2020.
