    my thoughts.... Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson look better then you, they taking your job. and I don't care if your a plumber or a football player you better show up if you want that pay raise. they offered you 10 million. take a business lesson gordon, invest your money and make hundreds of millions. he probably losing millions off of losing potential endorsement deals by not playing. get back to work. you got one year left on your contract honor it.

    He needs to show up and show out. And someone will pay him. He killing his career rite now by not playing. Can't get this time bacc.

    Gordon is not worth what he thinks he is. Eckler is balling right now and showing just how average Gordon is. He got most of his yardage while the D was backing off letting them run instead of pass.

    Chargers let so many players go and hardly brought replacements of the same caliber. Melvin is getting bad advice but also i think the chargers are being greedy. For the front office people its about saving cap and money for the team its like that in every company. The fans want championships.

    I think he'll get a contract, but just not with the Chargers. I get why players hold out, but I don't think players ever really do themselves any favor by holding out; especially at the RB position.

  • Paco A
    Paco A Month ago +8

    Yea he aint average, the problem is he has been injured most of the time. hasn't even played a full season.

  • Alex Muller
    Alex Muller Month ago

    He was thinking about 10 Million. However, he was thinking long term. If he played this year, and ended up injured. Most likely no new deal for Melvin Gordon. Which means there goes any power of negotiation. Sounds heartless but a player needs to take care himself. Any other player in league should understand. They all do the same.

    EASTBAY IVXX Month ago +1

    He is not better then Bell that’s for sure

  • Gilberto Felix

    Bad advice from his agent...10 million is his value should have grabed it. Ask Ekler and Jackson @ $1.25 mill combined and they balled out sunday!!

    They right, plus he doesn’t have much leverage cause he can barely play a full season without getting hurt

    • Thenodroid /
      Thenodroid / Month ago

      No but it's nice to have him. We'll just find another RB who'll be better later on in the draft

    Why is everybody blaming Asians for this? Seems a little unfair. Is there a backstory or...?

    Makes no sense! Chargers offered about $10.5 mil a year which is a top 5 contract at that position and he wants more when he can’t make it past week 10 healthy and has only had one stellar season. Plus with the money he’s losing out on holding out he’s about to break even at best... Terrible choice.

    Reggie Bush got the ultimate swag on TV. He needs to be a agent

  • Russell Giangrosso
    Russell Giangrosso Month ago

    Yeah but 25 your agent should have told you to stay in New Orleans lol you might still be playing but you wanted more carries you wanted to be a 3 down back lol but you weren't, hopefully AK learns from your mistake lol big fan tho hated it when you left and can remember me and my son going crazy when it was reported that Houston wasn't taking you lol and that the saints should have brought you back as a return man the last couple of years anyway wd4l reggie

    Leveons getting 13 mil and gordon is no where near leveon bell. He isn't getting more than 10 mil anywhere.

    Melvin Gordon is a proficient running back but he anit top 2 in the NFL

  • Matthew Rider
    Matthew Rider Month ago +1

    *Averaging LESS THAN 900 yards per season (breaking 1,000 yards only once in his four years), doesn't help Gordon's case.*
    *Melvin Gordon isn't even a "poor man's" LaDanian Tomlinson. He is more like Ryan Matthews 2.0.*

    • Jae Barnes
      Jae Barnes Month ago

      @CrimsonSoldier contracts are going to continue to go up for all positions. By the time their deals are up they'll be small. If you don't want to pay him, trade em.

    • CrimsonSoldier
      CrimsonSoldier Month ago

      @Jae Barnes which is why he got offered 10 million. Dude is not Laveon, and i like Melvins game but who is going to pay him11.5 or 12.5 million with his numbers? and fumbles and injury history?

    • Jae Barnes
      Jae Barnes Month ago

      I like how y'all leave out the 400+ receiving yards three seasons straight. Lol

  • Lightningstriker1
    Lightningstriker1 Month ago

    Look in the end it's the players responsibility to have SOME education of his own market. It's not rocket science. Even a common fan could've told him holding out would be professional suicide.

  • Keith Crook
    Keith Crook Month ago +1

    Encouraging your client to hold out that has only hit 1k yards rushing once in 4 years and was 17th in rushing and 7th in receiving among RB's last year...I'd say that qualifies as bad advice 😂 more like malpractice..

    Marcellus is on point, plus let’s not forget this is a owner or ownership who historically doesn’t come out the pocket for big money contracts

    GAMEZSTAA Month ago

    If you have the wrong agent they can ruin your career in the worse way. Melvin is represented by people who are giving him poor advice.

    It’s funny how Whitlock says the agents work for the player in the Gordon situation when he had the total opposite energy when it came to Anthony Davis I wonder why

      Michael G Month ago

      Gregory Williams You sound like a hater. He’ll be in the Hall of Fame one day. He’s been the greatest QB the Chargers have ever had. He puts them in positions to win and, if the Chargers didn’t have injury issues seemingly every single year, they’d have already won a minimum of one SB.

    • Micah Bell

      I think it's to hurt his ego like see not only we don't see you to be elite but the league doesn't either especially if noone offers a first for him

  • born 2 shit forced 2 wipe

    First off, Reggie is irrelevant and knows nothing about agents. Second, Melvin isn't even worth 7 mill.

    One 1,000 yard season in 4 yrs . I don't think he wants to play no more.

      Richard Walker Month ago

      lol really that was the only time in his career he average more then 4 yards a career. 5.1 doesn't mean anything especially if you only played in games/
