Report: Former Badgers star Melvin Gordon to demand trade from Chargers if no new contract

A former University of Wisconsin star is on the cusp of forcing a trade if the Los Angeles Chargers don't offer him a new contract.

As reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter:

Schefter cites the new contracts for backs like Le'Veon Bell (4 years, $52 million), Todd Gurley (4 years, $57 million) and David Johnson (3 years, $39 million) as a possible impetus for Gordon's reported demands.

Gordon has two Pro Bowls on his four-year professional resume, in 2016 and 2018.

In 12 games last year, Gordon ran for 885 yards, caught 50 passes for 490 yards, and scored 14 combined touchdowns.
