If the Chargers are smart, Gordon won’t get his wish

Let’s be honest, we all saw this coming, right?

Gordon is entering the final year of his contract after his fifth-year option was picked up by the team last May. He is set to earn $5.6 million this season, according to Spotrac. He would then become an unrestricted free agent next year.

Gordon is looking to get an extension before the season starts and if not, he would like the team to explore trade options.

The Chargers would be foolish to pay him the kind of money he is looking for, which would likely be in the neighborhood of $12-14 million per season.
