The Chargers are faced with another contract decision for one of their players, this time running back Melvin Gordon. Unfortunately, it’s a franchise with current general manager Tom Telesco running the show, who has been nothing but miserly as an extension of the notoriously stingy Spanos family.
What kind of franchise would be so cheap? Just look at these numbers:
- 2015: $5.6 million in available cap space (fourth-fewest)
- 2016: $8.7 million in available cap space (eighth-fewest)
- 2017: $10.3 million in available cap space (15th)
- 2018: $4.93 million in available cap space (lowest in the NFL)
- 2019: $10.
