Teams that need to free Austin Ekeler from the Chargers: Philadelphia Eagles
Looking at the Philadelphia Eagles, they very well could find themselves right back in the NFC Championship Game this coming season. Sure, they lost a few notable free agents but also added some talent as well.
When it comes to their backfield, though, the Eagles have a myriad of guys back there. After letting Miles Sanders leave via free agency, the Eagles now have Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott and Rashaad Penny as their top three backs. All of them have certain likable qualities, but if Philadelphia could add a talent like Ekeler, it would take their already-explosive offense up an even higher notch.
You have one of the most exciting, dual-threat quarterbacks in the league with Jalen Hurts, plus A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert. Throw in one of the league’s top and most versatile running backs? Look out.
This type of addition would give Hurts everything he could possibly desire surrounding him, and we might just see the Eagles’ offense finish at the top of the league in 2023. You want to win a Super Bowl? You make moves like this.
