NFL Star Running Back Furious Because of Salary Irregularity

Running backs like Miles Sanders and David Montgomery have gotten a lot of attention in the 2023 NFL offseason,

which has not been a good year for the position.

Even as training camp approaches, notable players like Ezekiel Elliott and Dalvin Cook have yet to find a team.

The New York Giants and running back Saquon Barkley, widely regarded as the best in his position,

have reached an impasse in contract negotiations.

Austin Ekeler, a running back for the Los Angeles Chargers,

has complained that he is underpaid despite being the starter and acquitting himself admirably.

As annual salary caps increase, leading to new highs in every position,

Ekeler thinks the key is to push top backs over the edge.
