The NFL’s trade deadline is quickly approaching and the rumor mill continues to be stronger on who might be on their way out from the current team to possibly help another playoff squad or their current team just wants to unload them for as many draft picks as possible.
Los Angeles Chargers’ Pro Bowl running back Melvin Gordon may have ended his holdout a few weeks ago, but he is being rumored to be on the trading block and it looks like teams still have interest in acquiring the standout running back.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says the price to get Gordon from them is “high.”
“With a few teams in need of help at running back, and with some early struggles after his holdout, expect some teams to call the Chargers about potentially dealing for running back Melvin Gordon. The price has been high, and L.A. will hold out for one, but this topic will be revisited.”
Gordon needed to return from his holdout before Week 10 this season in order to qualify for free agency next season. He only missed three weeks, but the team hasn’t been any better with his return.
He and his agent were given permission to seek a trade, but no team was willing to part ways with multiple draft picks to acquire him.
