Things are getting real on the West Coast.
The Chargers and Melvin Gordon are reportedly significantly apart in terms of contract value and it seems like Gordon realizes the figure won’t get close to what he wants.
According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, Gordon’s agent asked the Chargers to trade the veteran running back last week.
Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco reportedly told the agent he did not have permission to seek out potential trade partners on his own.
Gordon appeared in 12 games in 2018, racking up 885 yards to go along with 50 receptions for 490 yards and 14 total touchdowns.
The Chargers picked up the 5th-year option on Gordon worth $5,605,000 for the 2019 season.
