Chargers Postpone Contract Talks With Melvin Gordon Until After the Season

Chargers Postpone Contract Talks With Melvin Gordon Until After the Season

Los Angeles will not be negotiating a new deal with the running back ⁠- who is now holding out - during the season, general manager Tom Telesco told reporters Sunday.

General manager Tom Telesco said he informed the running back's representatives that, with Week 1 beginning, any such talks would now be put off until after the season. "So when or if Melvin reports, he'll play this season on his current contract".

Gordon desires a contract extension that will compensate him among the top running backs in the league like Todd Gurley, David Johnson and Le'Veon Bell, who earn an average of $13 to $14 million annually.

The Adapt Huaraches trainers will be available from September 13 at select retailers, as well as through the SNEAKRS app. It's expected to start off with a retail price of $349.

Start the countdown clock: the Indianapolis Colts have exactly one week until they open up the 2019 regular season on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Gordon is in the past year of his rookie deal and is set to make $5 million this season, making him one of the most criminally underpaid guys in the league. The Chargers offered Gordon a new contract that doubles his salary at roughly $10 million annually, but he is not satisfied. Multiple reports on Saturday stated the Chargers gave Gordon's agents permission to look for a trade.

So while Gordon can seek out potential trades, it still has to be something that makes sense for the Chargers.
