BREAKING: Broncos Release RB Melvin Gordon

Melvin Gordon’s time with the Denver Broncos has come to an end as the team decided to release the running back on Monday.

Cutting Gordon comes after another mistake-filled game in which the running back again fumbled near the goal line, costing the Broncos a chance at a touchdown late in the first half of Sunday’s loss to Las Vegas Raiders.

It was Gordon’s fifth fumble of the season, two of which were lost.

Gordon has rushed for 318 yards on 90 carries.
