Report: Chargers have made no progress with Melvin Gordon
The Los Angeles Chargers have reached out to running back Melvin Gordon, but no progress has been made on ending his holdout, according to a report.
ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported Tuesday that the Chargers have contacted Gordon recently to tell him that he’s still a valued part of the team. However, the two sides are no closer to agreeing on a new contract that would end his holdout.
Progress update on #LAC RB Melvin Gordon~text yest said, "nothing at all." But I was told the team recently reached out to Gordon to say "he's still missed & still family." Though I was told LA was really happy w/ efficiency of AK & JJ vs. ARZ, told still view Gordon "as our #1."

Gordon isn’t being allowed to seek a trade, but the two sides are also currently in a standoff on his contract demands. There are indications that Gordon is willing to miss quite a bit of game time to get what he wants, too.
