The Chargers hosted free agent running back J.K. Dobbins on a visit, according to Cards Wire’s Howard Balzer.

Los Angeles signed Gus Edwards early in free agency, and now they’re eyeing another former Raven as they continue to build the backfield.

Dobbins was a second-round pick by Baltimore in the 2020 NFL draft and made early contributions. He finished his rookie season with 925 total yards and nine touchdowns.

The following season, Dobbins was wiped out by a torn ACL. He missed half of the 2022 season with another knee injury.

Dobbins was looking to make a turnaround in 2023, but he sustained a torn Achilles in Week 1.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who repaired Dobbins’ Achilles, recently cleared him for all football activities.

ElAttrache noted that Dobbins looks “outstanding” after his rehab.

Dobbins would be a low-risk, high-reward signing for the Chargers. While he’s dealt with a multitude of injuries throughout his pro career, he is still 25 years old, has proven himself when healthy, and is familiar with Greg Roman’s offense.
