The Los Angeles Chargers have the quarterback, offensive line, and receiving corps to be a playoff-contending team even in the Kansas City Chiefs division. They even have the lightning to Murray’s thunder in Austin Ekelier.
The only hole left to fill on their offense is a hard-nosed backup running back. That’s exactly what Murray has shown he can be. With two straight 600-yard seasons behind Kamara, Murray is among the league’s best backup backs.
With Ekelier out most of last season, the Chargers ranked in the back half of the league in rushing yards per game. They were in the bottom five in average yards per attempt as well. Justin Herbert will help make this team competent, and Ekelier will make them elite.
Murray could help take them to a new level that could make them one of the best teams in the AFC.
