What's all this with Melvin Gordon?

I'd probably offer a 4th. No way I'd trade Aaron Jones. Do they need any WR?

I haven’t heard anything about him. Is he on the market?
He was great as a Wisconsin Badger.
Jones is our #1 back. No way we let go of him.

Love to have him...but the price re trade bait and salary cap is likely too high.

The Packers won a Superbowl with who, Brandon Jackson and James Starks at RB? I think they're fine. No need to give up a draft pick for the privilege to pay WR money to a disgruntled RB.

Hard pass.

A quick look at his stats leaves me underwhelmed. 3 years of a sub 4 yards per rush, 1 1000 yard rushing season, games missed due to injury etc. I don't follow the Chargers much but I thought they had a pretty good offense? Is there something unique about Gordon's game that demands high pay?

The Law Firm of Jones, Williams, Williams & Vitale is all The Packets need to rule The North!

Book It!

I'd definitely take a look, but no way I'd overpay. We have a bunch of young WRs, if they need one. Couple backup QB prospects.

Absolutely not. He has said himself he wants to get paid. We have our roster. Let's roll!

You'd offer a 4th just for right to let him threaten to sit out the whole year until you made him a top 5 overall paid RB in the NFL?

He's in the last year of his contract, getting slightly over $5.6 million this year, which would be the 11th highest average RB contract... because he's watched Todd Gurley, Le'Veon Bell, David Johnson and Jerick McKinnon all get large contracts these last two years, he wants it as well... he probably wants want to be with Gurley, Bell and Johnson in getting at least $13 million per season (or at least that's his hope).

Though as others pointed out, seeing that his yards per run average have been under 4 in three of his four seasons, is normally a bad sign, as well as that he couldn't get it with one of the best QBs and WRs in the NFL... though, the Chargers did have a weaker OL.

With you look at the draft pick and the cash investment, and that RBs are such a gamble to stay healthy long term... I might rather just keep investing draft picks into RBs and keeping young ones around, and not invest the MEGA amounts of money into a single one, unless you love them on and off the field. And even then, not the over $10 million per year amounts.

Would rather have Zeke Elliott who is also planning a hold out. But both of them are going to want a mega pay day. Not just out of their respective teams. For the price I think the back we have are good to go!

If we didn’t have any decent RBs, then I’d say HECK YEAH, go after him.
But we have Jones AND Williams! Why pay for a disgruntled guy, when we have young guys chomping at the bit to play?
I say we are set at RB.

Agreed... and there isn't a bigger Melvin Gordon fan on this site. Crying

I really wish we would have landed either Gordon or White off that team in Green Bay, but I have gotten used to our brain trust ignoring Madison. Still a bit bitter about TJ Watt.

Biggest problem with Zeke, isn't on the football field. And that is a lunker of a problem.

Pack93z, I feel the same way, how it seems the Packers ignore Badgers. And the rare time they do pick one, it’s rarely the RIGHT one.
TJ Watt would have been a huge pickup.

I would love to have Melvin Gordon. I would gladly give a 4th rd pick. Melvin Gordon is a very good person. I'm sure he's been instructed by his agent what to say and not say. He's a RB and needs to get the "big money" when he can, so I understand their position. However, we are not set up financially, with the money we've spent and players we'll need to replace soon, to spend big money to bring a RB in.
