Chargers' Gordon wants trade if no extension

Some of the NFL's top running backs have been getting big paydays, and unless Melvin Gordon gets one, he's going to cause a huge headache for the Chargers.

Chargers training camp opens on July 24.

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

Gordon has three straight seasons of at least 1300 yards from scrimmage, and his 38 career touchdowns thus far ranks only behind the Los Angeles Rams' Todd Gurley among 2015 draftees (Gurley has 46).

In June, Gordon said he was looking for a new deal, sooner rather than later. "But that's not going to stop me from coming out here and doing what I need to do".

Gordon has been eligible to sign an extension for more than a year, but general manager Tom Telesco said this offseason that there was no timeline. I'm just trying not to talk about it. "When it does, I'm pretty sure you guys will know".

Another one of Gordon's representatives, Damarius Bilbo, told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport the two-time Pro Bowler is not bluffing. Last year, Gordon missed four games with an injured knee, but when he was playing he averaged over five yards per carry.
