Unfortunately for Gordon, the calls from the Los Angeles Chargers' brass to his representation likely include some form of the words, 'we're not going higher than our last offer.'
Gordon's holdout nears five weeks. After training in Florida, Gordon told Fowler he's now in California continuing his "rigorous" training.
Slated to make $5.6 million in 2019, Gordon wants a salary more in line with a workhorse back. At some point, he'll have to report, or his contract will toll into 2020. He's subject to fines for missing camp and preseason games.
At this stage, it appears Gordon is waiting on a call that might never come.
