Melvin Gordon to reportedly end holdout on Thursday

Melvin Gordon is ending his holdout earlier than expected after the team refused to cave to his demands.

Gordon’s event is on its last day. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Chargers’ return would end his holdout by reporting to the team on Thursday, but he would not play against the Dolphins on Sunday. The Sports news was first reported by a Cleveland plain dealer on Tuesday.

The former first-round pick, who is in the final year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent after 2019, was always expected to report to the team before the midway point of the season to allow him to hit free agency Permission should be given in March, but he was not expected to report in early September. However, it is not difficult to understand why Melvin Gordon has decided to return to the team.

For one, the Chargers never caved his contract demands. Two, his desire to do business was never fulfilled. And three, he was losing both value and leverage with each passing week as his place was replaced by his own. It became clear to Melvin Gordon that if he wanted to secure a lucrative long-term contract, his best move was to return to the Chargers, prove that he is one of the league’s top running backs, and then A team from there is expected to have free agency ready to pay him like a march.

In other words, it is safe to call Melvin Gordon holdout a failure.

Without Melvin Gordon, the Chargers relied on Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson, both of whom excelled in Melvin Gordon’s absence. In three games, Ekeler has racked up 368 yards and four touchdowns from scrimmage while Jackson backed Ekeler for 155 yards. Both players averaged 6.5 yards per touch. They should remain heavy in the mix on Sunday, but their use beyond Sunday will clearly be a hit.

Melvin Gordon should resume his role as a starter. Melvin Gordon was coming off the best season of his career. In a 12-game season, Melvin Gordon accumulated 1,375 yards and 14 touchdowns at Scrimmage (a career-high), while averaging 6.1 yards per touch (career-high, by a wide margin).

Earlier Wednesday, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn told  The MMQB’s Albert Breer,  “He was our starter for a reason. We would love to have him back. … I can only coach those who are here and Taking them. But if Melvin Gordon comes back, it will be a nice boost. “

So, this means that perhaps the fantasy value of a single should be expected to be lower than that of a flex player, while Jackson should hit the bench in a standard-standard league. But in the case of real-life football, the Chargers are now fully loaded into the running position with three capable players. They need all the help they can get after bumbling during the first three weeks of the season and, as a result, are dropping two very commendable games and already falling two games behind the majors in the AFC West.
