Chargers RB Melvin Gordon Ends Holdout, Will Rejoin Team

After an unsuccessful holdout through three weeks, Melvin Gordon will rejoin the Chargers.

The running back announced he would be holding out for a new contract prior to training camp, even later asking to be traded, only to have his wishes see no fruition.

Due to missed practices and games, Gordon has been fined in the millions by the team, money he won’t be earning back with a new, richer contract.


Los Angeles went 1-2 in his absence.

Gordon isn’t expected to see the field until Week 5 when the Chargers take on the Steelers in primetime.
