Holdout expected to continue into the season
At this point, #Chargers RB Melvin Gordon’s holdout is expected to continue into the season, sources say. Contract talks have not progressed as he hoped, and he’ll continue to train in Florida for the foreseeable future. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: From the beginning, this situation seemed like it might take awhile and that seems to be playing out as both sides are dug in at the moment. Gordon needs to report the team at some point during the season or he’ll lose a year toward free agency. Gordon’s fantasy value is on the decline and should fall over the weekend on this news.
