Melvin Gordon is BACK … well, almost.
The L.A. Chargers superstar running back will end his holdout and return to the team on Thursday … but will NOT play this weekend against the Dolphins.
Gordon has been holding out since July while he demanded the team either give him a new contract or to trade him to another team.
The holdout is officially coming to end 3 weeks into the season … with Ian Rapoport reporting Gordon is rejoining his team.
We spoke with Chargers legend Antonio Gates on Tuesday about Gordon’s status with the team … and he said his old teammate deserves to be paid like Ezekiel Elliott, who just agreed to a $90 million extension with the Cowboys.
No word on whether that’ll happen — Gordon’s in the final year of his rookie deal, making $5,605,000.
So, one thing’s for sure — dude WILL get paid.
