Melvin Gordon says his teammates and running backs around the league support him as his contract dispute with the Los Angeles Chargers reaches a week.

"They're all behind me. They all got my back," Gordon said. "They all told me 'You know what -- we don't really speak on contracts -- but you just go and do what's best for your family.' And I'm glad I got that support from them."

The Chargers drafted Gordon, 26, 15th overall in 2015. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract -- a fifth-year option worth $5.6 million.

Agent Fletcher Smith said last week that without a new deal, Gordon will not report to training camp and will demand a trade.
