J.K. Dobbins, Chargers Agree to Contract in 2024 NFL Free Agency After Ravens Stint

The Los Angeles Chargers have signed running back JK Dobbins to a one-year deal, as reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. This move reunites Dobbins with former teammate Gus Edwards, who also joined the Chargers earlier in the offseason. Dobbins confirmed the news on social media, expressing excitement about his new opportunity.

Despite showing promise, Dobbins’ career has been hindered by injuries, causing him to miss a significant number of games. The 25-year-old running back, a 2020 second-round pick, has struggled to stay on the field consistently, raising concerns about his durability in the NFL.

The Baltimore Ravens, Dobbins’ former team, were willing to let him play out the final year of his contract in 2023. However, the Chargers are betting on Dobbins’ potential to bounce back from his injury woes and make a significant impact in their backfield.

With Dobbins’ explosive playmaking ability and a career average of 5.8 yards per carry, when healthy, he adds depth and talent to the Chargers’ running back corps. This signing comes after the departure of longtime starter Austin Ekeler in free agency, indicating a strategic shift in the Chargers’ backfield under head coach Jim Harbaugh, who appears to have a preference for players familiar with the system employed by his brother, John, in Baltimore.
