Melvin Gordon On New Deal: If It Happens, It Happens

Jun 12, 2019 9:28 AM

Melvin Gordon is in the final year of his rookie contract and said his representation has had preliminary talks with the Los Angeles Chargers.

"I'd be lying if I said I didn't want a deal done," Gordon said. "But that's not going to stop me from coming out here and doing what I need to do. We're going to see. I would like to go out there and have it done. We're talking right now, and that's kind of where I'm going to leave it."

While he is hopeful that a contract extension will be completed, Gordon did not dismiss the possibility of not playing in 2019 if no deal is consummated by the start of the regular season.

"I don't know, man," Gordon said. "I'm just trying not to talk about it. If it's going to happen, it'll happen. When it does, I'm pretty sure you guys will know."

The running back is scheduled to make $5.6 million in 2019.

Melvin Gordon: Chargers Are The Team To Beat

Jun 7, 2019 8:16 AM

The Kansas City Chiefs have won three straight AFC West titles, but Melvin Gordon sees the Los Angeles Chargers as the team to beat.

"We're the team to beat," Gordon said. "We're just special, and I definitely feel we have the best team in the NFL. You just have to walk around with that confidence."

The Chargers had the same record as the Chiefs last season, but ended up as a Wild Card team because of tiebreakers.
