Melvin Gordon set for Los Angeles Chargers return after contract dispute


Melvin Gordon report on Thursday on to the Los Angeles Chargers, according to a source and will end his holdout.
The running back has been absent since the beginning of training camp due to a contract dispute.
Gordon is not expected to play if the Chargers (1-2) travel to Miami (0-3) on Sunday, but could incorporate in the next two matches at home against Denver and Pittsburgh.
“I really don’t believe you walk in camp and only play straight away. You are able to run and do all the drills you want but it is challenging to simulate actual soccer,” coach Anthony Lynn stated before practice on Wednesday.
Gordon was slated to produce $5.6m (#4.5m) about the fifth-year option of his rookie contract. That total decreased by approximately $329,412 (#266,679) for every game he enrolls.
Gordon can also be subject to penalties of up to $40,000 (#32,382) beneath the collective-bargaining agreement for every day that he missed training camp.
General director Tom Telesco suspended contract talks with Gordon’s representatives until after this season.
Gordon was searching for an expansion of $13m (#10.52m) to $14.4m (#11.67m) a year, that was equivalent to prices accepted by Todd Gurley, David Johnson and Le’Veon Bell.
The Chargers offered approximately $10m (#8.1m) per year.
Gordon has obtained over 1,200 yards from scrimmage and scored 10 or more touchdowns however, the Chargers crime has not sputtered in his absence.
Austin Ekeler leads AFC running backs in yards from scrimmage and Justin Jackson is averaging 7.9 yards per carry.
Chargers running backs are averaging 5.4 yards per carry, that is third best in the league and above a yard more than the NFL average.
Quarterback Philip Rivers said he has not spoke to Gordon for just a little while and it would be up on how to take care of his return, to Lynn.
“I know it would be good to see him” Rivers said.
