Considering how injury prone Melvin has been I don't see the Chargers taking the bait. This reeks of the LeVeon Bell situation.

Sucks that all RB's value are declining.... I can't see him winning this. This is good for my Raiders though

I don't blame him one bit ... however as running backs have a more significant risk of injury and shorter careers than any other player, I also wouldn't be surprised if the Chargers trade him, as it just doesn't make sense to pay running backs big money with the way the salary cap is.

They are also easier to replace, and seem to decline more quickly than other positions.

Austin Eckler and Justin Jackson isn't a bad duo. They may let him hold out then.

For Gordon, he will probably get paid. Bell eventually did even though he lost a years worth of salary.

Hmmm, guessing from Charger history, he will be given a tough battle and big fight from the Chargers. They wont pay sh&# until they are required to do so. So hes in a tough situation. Play get hurt, get kicked to the curb. Play well, get lowballed, dont like lowball offer, get franchise tagged. Have another good season, get franchise tagged again. Finally get freedom, your 30 years old and seen as over the hill. So...heres a guess...a theory...nah, its a tough decision hes gonna have to make.
