Chargers' Melvin Gordon: No progress on new deal

The Chargers and Gordon's representatives haven't made progress on a new contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Gordon would like to be back by Week 1, but remains steadfast in his desire for an upgraded deal in the realm of the top-3 RB contracts in the NFL (Todd Gurley, Le'Veon Bell and David Johnson), which include salaries of $13-plus million per season and at least $20 million guaranteed. While Gordon certainly approaches that stratosphere of running back, the Chargers reportedly aren't budging from an offer of about $10 million per year. During the standoff, he requested a trade and continues to mull sitting out well into the regular season.
