The Los Angeles Chargers are starting out their 2019 season in the wrong way as they may have to deal with life without their star running back for awhile.

Gordon is entering the fifth and final year of his contract and is set to make $5.6 million in the upcoming season.

Melvin Gordon is taking a stand.

"He's prepared to sit, and we'll take it day by day, week by week and see how things go", Smith said.

"We received an offer - talks had been dead - but we received an offer that wasn't a fair offer based on what Melvin has done, where he was drafted, and how he's performed, making two of the last four Pro Bowls", Bilbo added.

Iran's Revolution Guards denied the United Kingdom account Thursday, according to Iran's Tasnim news agency. Oil futures ( CL=F ) rose 0.41% to well over $60 a barrel, remaining at levels not seen since May.

He admitted at that time that he would love to have a new deal done, and "I don't want to miss football". I can just come into work and do what I need to do.

"I'd be lying if I said I didn't want a deal done", the back said from mandatory minicamp, via ESPN.com.

All running backs in the league stick together when it comes to getting paid, as it could very well create a domino effect for the remainder of the players at the position. Gordon has struggled at times to find room to operate in the Chargers backfield - despite averaging 5.1 yards per carry in 2018, Gordon averages just 4.0 yards per carry over 897 career carries.

The Chargers are scheduled to open training camp July 24. I know because I've been there.

The Wisconsin product has led the Chargers in rushing in each of the last three seasons with an average of 996 rushing yards and 9.3 rushing touchdowns per season.
