Melvin Gordon leaving the Chargers would be good for Chiefs

Over the last few days, word has leaked that Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon is not happy at all with his deal. In fact, he’s so unhappy that he’s threatened to hold out of training camp if he’s not given a new deal while also demanding a trade—assumedly to a team that would value him “properly.”

While it’s unlikely that Gordon is going to go anywhere given the lack of leverage on his part, all of this is likely an exercise in futility—including this very story. However, if Gordon was somehow able to manipulate the situation to get what he wants, to force the Chargers hand to trade him to a team willing to pay him, you wouldn’t hear any concerns from the Chiefs side of the AFC West.
