Eagles' trade offer for Melvin Gordon shows he likely isn't leaving L.A.

Melvin Gordon’s holdout isn’t exactly going how he likely hoped: He hasn’t gotten a new contract from the Los Angeles Chargers, and while the Chargers have given Gordon’s agents permission to find a trade partner, that hasn’t happened yet.

And if a Wednesday report is an indication, a trade is unlikely.

Albert Breer of The MMQB tweeted on Wednesday that there has been only one offer made for Gordon, a two-time Pro Bowler.

The Philadelphia Eagles made the proposal. Breer said it included Jordan Howard going to the Chargers, a swap of “mid-round” draft picks, and the Chargers eating some of Gordon’s salary too.

Los Angeles declined.

Chargers’ high asking price

On Tuesday, ESPN’s Josina Anderson tweeted that the Chargers were looking for a first-round pick in 2020 or a fifth-round pick in 2020 and first-round pick in 2021 for Gordon, the 15th overall pick in 2015.

Is that price too high? Obviously other teams believe it is, judging by what Philadelphia reportedly offered.
