Austin Ekeler, Chargers reportedly agree to four-year contract

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Austin Ekeler and the Chargers have come to terms on a four-year, $24.5 million contract.

Schefter adds that the deal includes $15 million guaranteed. The 24-year-old back made the most of his opportunity during Melvin Gordon's holdout last Fall.
