The Los Angeles Chargers have been a sexy pick for a lot of National Football League analysts this offseason (as usual) given the talent on their roster top to bottom. You can discuss doubts as to whether or not Gordon is worth top dollar, but the Chargers should be able to find a deal that works for both sides given that going with Austin Ekeler on a full-time basis devalues what he brings in spurts.
Though Melvin Gordon's demands are breaking news, it's not new or unexpected news to any Chargers fan who has followed the recent history of running back contracts.
Gordon is due to make $5.605 million this year.

Women's National Team is an inspiration", Collins said. "At this moment, they are cultural icons and should be paid as such". For example, the US Soccer Federation awarded the women's team a $1.7 million bonus for winning the 2015 World Cup.
For the past three seasons, Gordon has been the workhorse running back for the Chargers. It looked like Gordon was headed for a monster year in 2018 before a knee injury forced him to miss four games. The two-time Pro Bowler is the focal point of the offense, and at just 26 years old should see plenty more productive seasons ahead.
From Gordon's perspective, the Chargers have shown weakness without his presence. While running backs are risky to pay, the Chargers may have their hands tied in this situation. His dissatisfaction with negotiations led him and his agent, Damarius Bilbo, to address the matter publicly in an effort to either secure a better offer or force a trade.
All of these factors should combine to create the wrong place at the wrong time for any interest in a potential Dolphins trade for Melvin Gordon.
