3 darkhorse teams who could sign Melvin Gordon

Melvin Gordon played in 12 games this season after holding out early on. There has been no movement on a possible deal for the star running back to remain in Los Angeles so he could find a new home in 2020.

Gordon finished with 612 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019. He averaged just 3.8 yards per carry. The emergence of Austin Ekeler will make it easier for the Chargers to part ways with Gordon if they decide to go that route.

Running the ball is once again important in the NFL. We all watched what the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans did during the first two rounds of the playoffs. Gordon is a useful player and could be picked up a bargain price. These three teams should take a good long look at that option.
