The Detroit Lions should trade for Chargers’ Melvin Gordon

The hot trend in the NFL is for star players to publicly complain about their current contract situation and to hold out in hopes of a trade or new deal. The latest to join this worrisome phenomenon is Chargers running back Melvin Gordon, who is apparently willing to follow in the the footsteps of Le’Veon Bell.

Our friends over at Bolts From The Blue targeted the Lions as a potential trade partner, sending Gordon in return for Rick Wagner and a sixth-round pick. While this would represent an upgrade for Detroit at the running back position, the cost does not seem quite right.
