Marcellus done hit his head. IF HE SITS OUT THE YEAR, HE'LL STILL BE UNDER CONTRACT! He has to play 6 games to get the year counted!

2015 Rookie year no tds gets injured 🤕
2016 Second year no playoffs
2017 gets injured
2018 has a good year but played hurt during playoff lost to New England due to time of possession

What I hate about whitlock's opinions on these issues is it just seems like he wants to say just shut up and take it. If you are unhappy, dont do anything about it.

As a chargers fan I watched lt obliterate other teams for 8 seasons...Melvin Gordon is good but he never made the difference in any important games...he puts up the numbers but his impact is not really there, if he wants top 5 money then I’m sorry but we should probably trade him.

Le'veon Bell actually lost his holdout lol He didn't get the pay he was fighting for and in turn lost 17mill by holding out!!! Yes he was able to get another contract but he still his initial argument

Melvin Gordon shouldn’t be the highest paid running back but he also deserves more than 5 million dollars a year. Pay the man Chargers
Andrew Paul
Andrew Paul:
Wiley did t mention that the deal the steelers reportedly offered Bell and he turned down was more than what he got from. The jets.... completely proves he was wrong to sit out and they didn't talk about it.
Marky Ortiz
Marky Ortiz:
"“To be eligible for the draft, players must have been out of high school for at least three years and must have used up their college eligibility before the start of the next college football season." Most players who enter the draft are between 21 and 23. By the time they have finished their rookie contact (minimum, 4 years) they are 25-27. If you are franchise tagged once, you are not 26-28, franchised tagged twice, you are now 27-29 years old. No team is going to give you a 3-4 year , top dollar contract. The NFLPA during next negotiations, should remedy this. You could ban franchise tags for running backs, make their minimum contract 3 years and only one year of franchise tag, keep the four year rookie contract but if they meet certain benchmarks they can become restricted free agents with their current team being able to match best offer. You know their shelf life is shorter. Teams should be able to hold them hostage for their best years.

I don’t understand is how an industry can generate 15 BILLION dollars in revenue (ahead of the super bowl) and call themselves the King of US sports have the lowest paid athletes?? More money than the MLB and the NBA. However top players have to fight for contracts #makesnosense

hes had 1 thousand yard season and he wants to be highest paid he crazy
Remy

I hate that the NFL teams continue to not pay their running backs because of this stupid idea the older they get the less valuable they are. I mean look at some of the greatest running backs of all time they were good value for money even into their 30s. I mean Andrian Peterson is still a great running back and he's 34.

Sit out Melvin Gordon- you are replaceable... just like Wiley

top 5 no way, top 10, maybe.. he still deserves a little more cash though.. 27th in the league is kind of low.

Melvin Gordon is not top 5, but he is not a scrub. He should do whatever he can do in the interest of Melvin Gordon to get as much money as he can possibly get before he gets unceremoniously dumped out of the league, as most running backs do.

Melvin Gordon was about as healthy as Ryan Mattews was with us and we let him walk. The Chargers are actually deep with rushers and MGIII overplayed his hand. Wiley is wrong because MGIII isn't they key to the Chargers win.
Roger S-Man
Roger S-Man:
Whats done is done, Melvin is getting traded. Thats why he changed his number too.

Lightningstriker1
Lightningstriker1:
I didn't like Gordon saying "I hate training camp" at the ESPY's after missing all of OTAs. That's not the mindset the Chargers want to hear. He's worth more than $5.6M but who knows what he's demanding? Lavar's right - making this public was dumb. TT's smart & has a contingency plan.
Alex Fleming
Alex Fleming:
Rookie contract should be slotted but more performance based to get more money without counting against the cap.

melvin gordon aint a top 5 running back not even close
Joe Misek
Joe Misek:
In terms of pure talent, over MG I'll take Gurley, Bell, David Johnson, Zeke, Saquon, CMC, and Alvin Kamara. Maybe Wiley forgot... but Bell ended up with less $$ than what he was offered and rejected when negotiating with the Steelers. This can backfire very easily.

Colin Blaine

Any team willing to pay out $17 million for him is stupid and I'm glad to see them take him off our hands. Don't give him that Telesco!
Mathew Campbell
Mathew Campbell:
Is Melvin Gordon better then Leveon Bell, Christian McAffery, Alvin Kamara, Saquon Barkley, Todd Gurley, and David Johnson? I am a Charger fan and am curious where the rest of the NFL fans think he is in the RB landscape.
Darth Raider
Darth Raider:
The only move the Chargers need to make is moving back to San Diego. We don't want them in LA!

Melvin Gordon can be replaced
Christopher Johnson
Christopher Johnson:
He has a right to hold out, but you can be replaced, and he's been hurt a lot. So they might want to see more durability..

t3ddyRUXpn:
To the team willing to make MG3 the highest paid RB, then by all means, take him. I could argue 3-4 players that should get paid before him on the Chargers.
M Performance
M Performance:
Saquone, Zeke, Gurley, Bell, Mcaffrey, and Kamara are all better than Gordon. You can argue Henry, Chubb and Hunt (on the field) are better as well. Gordon isn’t top 5 rb
Daniel Wilkes
Daniel Wilkes:
Original football was about rushing. Fuulback all but eliminated. Jim brown, Payton, smith, sanders did all the running just so the next generation of rushers get ignored half the time by GM's? Sad

C Bleezy:
As a Charger fan. Now that he threatened trade him and didn’t handle it internally did fracture my support in him. We need to pay Joey and Derwin big deals anyway. Let’s go shopping 🛍 . I think the publicity of this years success would have definitely got him a big deal but hay.... 🛍🛍🛍
jeagles1000
jeagles1000:
Horrible move makes me question his awareness I dont think he is aware of how close this team is to a sb that extra money should go to a rotation DE and a power back to help him
Tony Rumfelt
Tony Rumfelt:
Smith isn't a top 5 rb all time. He played behind arguably the top offensive lines all time.

Austin Ekler will step into the starting spot and show the league he to is a top running back.
