Teams needing to release Austin Ekeler from the Chargers: Buffalo Bills
The Bills are a team very close to contending that needs one more player on offense to level up Josh Allen and those around him. If you want a way For Ekeler businessNow you can put them in the AFC Championship Game.
Trading for Ekeler means Buffalo gets second-year running back James Cook, whom the team selected in the second round last year. The former Georgia standout could be a good replacement for Ekeler in Los Angeles and would give the Chargers two more years of a starting back contract.
Stefon Diggs, Dawson Knox and the often-explosive Gabe Davis combined with Ekeler could be the equivalent of fireworks in the AFC East. A move like this would help the Bills stay on par with a team like the Jets, who could soon trade for Aaron Rodgers and undoubtedly boost their playoff chances by doing so.
