Potential Destinations For A Melvin Gordon Trade

Potential Destinations For A Melvin Gordon Trade

Regardless, Gordon expects to be paid more, and if Los Angeles doesn't meet his demands, a Le'Veon Bell-type of situation might ensue.

New England Patriots running back James White and Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon were once teammates at the University of Wisconsin, which has caused them to still have a close relationship years later while they play for different teams in the NFL.

His agent, Fletcher Smith, told ESPN that the running back will not be reporting to Chargers training camp in late July and that he will demand a trade if the team does not give him a contract extension. Two of Gordon's agents made the national media rounds on Thursday, using terms such as "very serious" and "disrespectful" to describe Gordon's mood and his dedication to following through on their threats.

In June, Gordon said he was looking for a new deal, sooner rather than later.

Melvin Gordon is taking a stand. He's gained over 4,800 yards rushing and receiving, and 38 touchdowns since he entered the league four years ago. "But we're going to see ..." Gordon rushed for 885 yards last season on a career-high 5.1 yards per carry and tallied 14 total touchdowns.

"I'd be lying if I said I didn't want a deal done", the back said from mandatory minicamp, via ESPN.com.

"I'm just trying not to talk about it". "But that's not going to stop me from coming out here and doing what I need to do". Last year, he missed the final four games of the season, yet he still managed to be efficient.
