Austin Ekeler, a running back with the Los Angeles Chargers, has reportedly agreed to a reworked,
contract two months after making a trade request, a source with knowledge of the issue told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
After initially being scheduled to make $6.25 in 2023, the fourth and final year of his $24.5 million agreement,
Ekeler, who turned 28 in May, will now receive an additional $1.75 million in incentives.
"Star RB Austin Ekeler is staying in Los Angeles and having nearly $2 million in incentives added to his deal for this season,
per source, after an off-season in which he wanted to be dealt. Ekeler will be a free agency at age 28 after this season, thus both the Chargers and Ekeler win.
Prior to the rumored new contract, head coach Brandon Staley addressed Ekeler's absence from the Chargers' optional organized team activities on Monday, May 22.
