Chargers' Gordon wants trade if no deal

Chargers running back Melvin Gordon plans to hold out of to Los Angeles' training camp and demand a trade if he does not receive a new contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The five-year deals for first round picks lock them in at below market wages, and then when they hit their mid to late twenties the teams say they are nearing the end of their useful lives. Smith said Gordon had hoped to keep negotiations private, but had go the public route due to a lack of progress being made with the Chargers this off-season.

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

But when he was asked about not playing in 2019 if he didn't get an extension, Gordon didn't dismiss the notion.

"I don't know, man".

Gordon was selected as a Pro Bowler in two of his first four seasons including past year, when he missed four games to injury. I'm just trying not to talk about it. Looking at conventional stats, Gordon had 885 rushing yards, averaged 5.1 yards per carry and had 10 rushing touchdowns. "When it does, I'm pretty sure you guys will know".
