Melvin Gordon may not report to camp, could demand trade

Los Angeles running back Melvin Gordon has informed the Chargers that unless he receives a new contract, he will not report to training camp and he will demand a trade, his agent Fletcher Smith told ESPN.

Unless he has a new deal, Chargers’ RB Melvin Gordon will not report to training camp, not when he currently is scheduled to be heading into the last year of his contract, a fifth-year option, worth $5.6 million dollars.

Fantasy Impact: 

We could see a one-two punch from Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson if Gordon misses playing time. 4for4 has moved Gordon down and Ekeler and Jackson up in our rankings and currently see Gordon as a second-round pick to avoid, as the Chargers may not pay him with those two waiting in the wings.
