Gordon reportedly had a better offer from another team but wanted to stay in the AFC West. The 2015 first round pick is a two-time Pro Bowler. From 2016 to 2018, Gordon averaged 1,457 yards from scrimmage and 12.7 touchdowns.

In 2019, Gordon held out of training camp and returned in week 5 without a contract with the Chargers. He recorded nine touchdowns in 12 games last season
