It seems the Los Angeles Chargers’ running back Melvin Gordon might soon end his holdout and return to the team.
Chargers’ RB Melvin Gordon’s holdout could soon be coming to an end, though no final decisions have made when to report, per league sources. He had planned to return at some point in October, but could soon be moving up his reporting date.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 25, 2019
Obviously we all know what Gordon can do in this offense and if you stashed him on your bench and waited this long, good on you. Who knows when exactly he’ll return and in what capacity, but it seems like the ball is rolling a little earlier than expected. Meanwhile, if you’re an Austin Ekeler owner like myself, now might be the time to sell high. Again, don’t panic just yet as we don’t know when Gordon will return, but his return would certainly put a cap to what’s been an excellent season from Ekeler.
