Could the Dallas Cowboys be eying a key addition for next season?
According to David Kenyon of Bleacher Report, Jerry Jones could be in prime position to acquire Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler, whose time with the team appears to have come to an end.
“When healthy, he remains a valuable and versatile back,” wrote Kenyon.” The question is how the 28-year-old is balancing role, money or team contention on what’s likely the final pricey contract of his career. Dallas, for instance, may offer $7-8 million per year to make a splash.”
Following the Chargers' regular season finale, Ekeler implied that he was as good as gone from the team.
“I’m not going to be with these guys anymore, and it’s one of those journeys that I’ll always remember,” he said. "But it's sad that it has to end."
Last season, Ekeler racked up 628 yards on 179 carries with five rushing touchdowns, along with 51 receptions for 436 receiving yards.
Cowboys fans, would you be open to bringing the former Chargers running back to Dallas?
