According to NFL.com, Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon III will demand a trade if a new deal is not reached. He is willing to hold out until he gets his wish — either a new deal or a trade.

He has informed the team that he’s not going to training camp without a new deal. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero is reporting that both sides are negotiating a potential new deal.

The Chargers would like to keep Gordon for the long-term. Los Angeles reports to camp on July 24th.

Deals for running backs are tough, because a lot of good backs see a downward decline after their age 30 season. Gordon turned 26 in April.

The Kenosha, Wisconsin native was the 15th overall pick by the San Diego Chargers in the 2015 NFL Draft. He spent his first two seasons in San Diego, before the franchise relocated to Los Angeles before the 2017 season.

This past season, Gordon III appeared in 12 games, including 12 starts. He had 175 carries for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns.

He also had 50 receptions for 490 yards and four touchdowns.

In his four-year career, he has appeared in 55 games, including 52 starts. He has 897 carries for 3,628 yards and 28 touchdowns.

He also has 182 receptions for 1,577 yards and 10 touchdowns.
