Only 3 NFL running backs averaged 70+ rushing YPG and 40+ receiving YPG in 2018: 1. Todd Gurley 2. Saquon Barkley 3. Melvin Gordon Of those 3, Gordon was the ONLY one who averaged MORE than 6.0 yards per TOUCH

Since 2016, Melvin Gordon’s production:
* 28 rushing TD, T-2nd most in the NFL
* 10 receiving TD, T-4th most amongst RB
* 38 TD from scrimmage, 2nd most in the NFL

A versatile, workhorse back. Will be interesting to see how LA values the RB position in this case.

Other than injury concern???

Same here...looking at his stats i could see why though. Watching him play is another thing...hes easily top 5 in my book.

Duke Johnson RB, Cleveland Browns
Profootballtalk's Mike Florio calls the Bucs a "team to watch" for Duke Johnson.

The Bucs certainly have one of the league's weakest backfields. There's a strong case to be made that it's the worst. Whether it actually is will depend on the sophomore progress of rookie flop Ronald Jones. Bucs coach Bruce Arians has typically preferred a one-man backfield, though he did recently unearth ex-Cardinals pass-catching back Andre Ellington, who was one of Arians' first draft picks in the desert.

ps maybe gordon trade to texans ??? would make em a true contender and they have plenty of cap space to take on gordon

As a dynasty M. Gordon owner what future draft pick would you be willing to trade to secure Ekeler onto your roster.

Flip side, if you owned Ekeler what would it take to move him?

I'd be happy to get a 2nd for him. I wouldn't bother trading for him, depending on my roster. He's complimentary, not a handcuff.

I’m pretty sure Gordon’s looking for more than what millers getting paid. also another reason they won’t trade for Gordon.

Miller's contract was pretty good when he signed it. Not as good as Brock's right enough.

Texans seem happy to pay up.

I will make the long shot call that Henry and Gordon trade places next year.

They traded Duane brown because they didn’t want to pay him , they won’t pay Clowney. Gm was fired because the coach doesn’t want to pay Clowney and the gm did.

clowney is good but not great with huge injury concerns,you think its wise to pay this guy 20 million a yr ??? as far as gordon goes he better then good and next to being great his stats prove that,the texans need a running game to stop the qb from getting killed,watson,gordon,dhop are the triplets needed to propel this team tot he next level,defense is great already

Tampa? Houston?



Niether, I don’t think tampa has the luxury to afford a high priced rb.

They were going to pay Clowney. The coach didn’t want to. Clowney missed 3 games in the last 3 years and plays a much more in demand position.


Gordon doesn’t bring anything to the table that they can’t get anywhere else. He has one thousand yard rushing season in 4 years, and has only touched the ball more than 300 times in only one season. Has one season where he averaged more than 3.9 Ypc. Go look at mark Ingram’s numbers, how much is he making? He’s definitly older. There not giving up a pick and handing him 12 million +.


And yes I’d pay a premier pass rusher way before I’d pay a rb. Almost every team would.


Miller if fine for what they need, this is an easy no for the texans. I mean Gordon a solid player, but he isn’t special, I think there going to give foreman a good look to.
