Chargers' Melvin Gordon won't attend training camp without new contract

Melvin Gordon is taking a stand.

The Chargers running back has informed the team that he will not report to training camp without a new contract and will demand a trade if he doesn’t get one, his agent Fletcher Smith told ESPN.

Gordon, who is scheduled to earn $5.6 million in 2019, was at mandatory minicamp last month after sitting out voluntary workouts earlier this offseason, but was adamant that he still wanted a new deal.

“I would be lying if I said I didn’t want a deal, but that’s not going to stop me from coming out here,” Gordon said at the time, per the Los Angeles Daily News. “But we’re going to see … We’re talking right now and that’s kind of where I’m going to leave it.

“I would love to have it done, so I don’t have to worry about that. I can just come into work and do what I need to do. I just don’t want any problems or anything like that. I don’t want to miss football. I don’t have time for none of that going back and forth. I rather just get it done and get it out the way. Like I said, we will revisit that.”

Gordon, 26, had 1,375 yards and a career-high 14 touchdowns last season, despite missing four games.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection has had three consecutive seasons of at least 1,200 scrimmage yards and 10 total touchdowns.

The Chargers are scheduled to open training camp July 24.
