Twitter reacts to Commanders agreeing to terms with Chargers RB Austin Ekeler

The Washington Commanders struck again during Monday’s legal tampering period, agreeing to terms with Chargers running back Austin Ekeler on a two-year deal. One of the NFL’s best running backs in recent years, Ekeler reunites with his first NFL head coach, Anthony Lynn, now Washington’s running backs coach/run game coordinator.

Earlier on Monday, Washington saw Antonio Gibson agree to a three-year deal with the New England Patriots. Ekeler, who has 440 career receptions and 30 receiving touchdowns, will replace Gibson as the Commanders’ third-down/pass-catching back under new offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury. Ekeler is the ideal complement to starting running back Brian Robinson Jr.

In seven NFL seasons, Ekeler has 69 touchdowns and will help make life easier for Washington’s next quarterback.
