Gus Edwards could join Jim Harbaugh's Chargers as Austin Ekeler goes.

With Austin Ekeler joining the Washington Commanders, the Los Angeles Chargers appear to have found their new primary running back.

According to various sources, former Ravens running back Gus Edwards reached an agreement with the Chargers on Monday to sign a two-year contract. The terms of the purchase were not publicly disclosed.

The move reunites Edwards with former Baltimore offensive coordinator Greg Roman. Roman joined the Chargers this offseason, working under first-year head coach Jim Harbaugh. 

The transfer also means Edwards will be playing for the brother of his former Ravens head coach, John Harbaugh.Edwards, 29, spent his entire five-year NFL career with the Ravens.

In 2023, he led all Ravens running backs with 810 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns at 4.1 yards per carry. He added 12 receptions for 180 yards.

Last season, he averaged 4.1 yards per carry, a career low after averaging at least five yards per carry in each of his first four seasons with Baltimore.

Edwards returned in 2023 following an ACL injury that kept him out for the second half of the 2022 season. He took over as the lead back after J.K. Dobbins suffered an Achilles injury in Week 1.

He had worked as part of a committee in Baltimore, averaging at least 700 yards on five or more yards per run in each of his first three seasons.
