Star NFL Running Back Plans On Holding Out Without New Contract

Chargers running back Melvin Gordon might hold out from training camp

The 26-year-old running back officially told the Chargers that he will not report for camp and will request a trade if he is not given a new deal; given the Buccaneers' deficiencies at the running back position and 2020 cap space, they are an obvious fit.

The agent for Melvin Gordon has informed the Los Angeles Chargers that his client will not attend the team's training camp and could demand a trade unless he gets a new contract, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Gordon enjoyed a breakout season a year ago for the Chargers despite missing a quarter of a season with a knee sprain. Gordon has proved himself an elite running back; since 2016, he has the second-most overall touchdowns from scrimmage with 38.

Joe Torre, MLB's chief baseball officer, said he thoroughly reviewed the play from all angles. I walked him through what I was seeing. "Just turned out to be an ugly play".

Gordon also reportedly told the Chargers that failure to reach agreement on a contract would result in a trade demand.

At that time, he said he was trying to avoid contract conversations, but he noted fellow 2015 first-round Todd Gurley already had received a long-term deal from the Rams. If it's going to happen, it'll happen. Gordon has one fumble in the last two seasons (28 games)4. For instance, look at the Los Angeles Rams, who made Todd Gurley the highest-paid running back in the National Football League last offseason (four years, $60 million).

"It's an issue with everybody else", Gordon said. "When it does, I'm pretty sure you guys will know". They signed the dotted line. "But that's not going to stop me from coming out here and doing what I need to do".
