Chiefs Signing RB Melvin Gordon To Practice Squad

Tom Pelissero reports that the Chiefs are signing RB Melvin Gordon to their practice squad following his release from the Broncos.

Gordon’s release from the Broncos earlier this month was due in large part to him fumbling five times in 10 games this season. 

Gordon, 29, is a former first-round pick out of Wisconsin by the Chargers in the 2015 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year $10.669 million rookie contract that was fully guaranteed and made a base salary of $1,889,967 for the 2018 season.

The Chargers picked up Gordon’s fifth-year option worth $5,605,000 for the 2019 season. He signed a two-year, $16 million deal in free agency with the Broncos in 2020. 

Gordon returned to Denver on a one-year deal for the 2022 season. However, the Broncos opted to waive him on Tuesday. 

In 2022, Gordon has appeared in 10 games for the Broncos and rushed for 318 yards on 90 carries (3.5 YPC) and two touchdowns to go along with 25 receptions on 32 targets for 223 yards receiving. 

We will have more news on Gordon as it becomes available.
