Austin Ekeler has never played for another NFL team outside the Los Angeles Chargers during an NFL career that dates back to 2017, but it became clear this offseason the team's new leadership group featuring head coach Jim Harbaugh wasn't going to bring him back.

And Ekeler understands and doesn't seem to have any hard feelings.

"They wanted a guy they can hand the ball off to 300 times a year, and, look, I haven't had the capacity to do that," he said during a Monday appearance on Up & Adams with Kay Adams.
