Melvin Gordon traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is intriguing considering since the Bucs have the worst RB unit in the NFL. The Houston Texans have one of the most electric offenses in the league, but their running game has been slowed down by Lamar Miller, insert Gordon into this starting lineup and Houston becomes legit title contenders. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Leonard Fournette have had a bumpy offseason, perhaps Jacksonville ships off the former #4 pick for Gordon in a trade. The Baltimore Ravens traded for Mark Ingram this offseason, but look for the Ravens to run the football a ton in 2019. Gordon played college football at Wisconsin, so perhaps the Green Bay Packers make sense for Gordon.
5 NFL Teams that could trade for Melvin Gordon:
#5 Green Bay Packers
#4 Baltimore Ravens
#3 Jacksonville Jaguars
#2 Houston Texans
#1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
