Melvin Gordon's Holdout Could Last Until Regular Season

Philip Rivers has caught some heat from fans and players alike for his recent comments surrounding Melvin Gordon and his contract situation, put together in a an article from Pro Football Talk detailing Rivers' belief that Gordon can be replaced by the trio of backs behind him.

Speaking Saturday on SiriusXM NFL Radio, the Chargers quarterback insisted he's content playing out the final year of his current deal. If it were to some time soon, great.

Chargers owner Dean Spanos wouldn't speculate when the team would re-sign Rivers but guaranteed in May the two sides will eventually agree to a new contract.

"It's gonna happen, it will happen", Spanos said at the time, via the Orange County Register. He's a big part of our team, and so we hope to get him back soon and get him out here soon. "Hopefully we see Melvin soon".

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon is reportedly in danger of missing games as his holdout threatens to carry over into the regular season, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. He is entering the fifth and final year of his deal and is set to make $5.6 million in the upcoming season. "They all told me, 'You know what - we don't really speak on contracts - but you just go and do what's best for your family.' And I'm glad I got that support from them".

I mean, what is Rivers supposed to say? When we see him, we'll be fired up, and until then we'll go prepare like insane [like] he's not gonna be here.

The Chargers selected Gordon out of Wisconsin with the No. 15 pick in the 2015 draft.
