Permitted to seek trade
The Chargers have granted Ekeler permission to seek a trade, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The report notes that the running back's request stems from a lack of progress in discussions regarding a new contract. Per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN, Ekeler is slated to earn $6.25 million in 2023, the final season of his current four-year, $24.5 million contract. It remains to be seen if his request leads to a trade, or alternatively results in an extension from the Chargers, but either way the star back appears to be angling for a payday more in line with his high level of production.
