How much leverage does Melvin Gordon really have?

By now, everyone who cares to know is well aware of the fact that Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon has decided that he is worth more than his current contract and worth more than whatever unknown contract the Chargers have offered him to this point. Given his disagreement with the club’s valuation of his services, he has, of course, declared that he will sit out of training camp and demand a trade if they do not change their minds and come around to his way of thinking about how good he is.

This, as we have discussed previously, leaves the team in the position of having a few options of how to handle their disgruntled employee.
