Melvin Gordon To Buffalo Bills A Done Deal?
Is Melvin Gordon to the Buffalo Bills a done deal? Things are beginning to trend in that direction.
With Tom Brady officially departing the New England Patriots, the AFC East is suddenly wide open for the first time in two decades.
It remains to be seen what the Patriots will look like without Brady, but Buffalo figures to be stacked heading into 2020.
A few days ago, the team traded for wide receiver Stefon Diggs for a first, fifth and sixth round pick. Now there is word that the team may pursue Gordon as well.
On the heels of the Stefon Diggs trade, adding Gordon would be something. https://t.co/tTI8TDUKCM

Last year, Gordon turned down $10 million per year from the Los Angeles Chargers figuring he would be able to get more on the open market. Thus far, that gamble has not paid off. He is reportedly getting nothing close to LA’s offer.
That being said, there is currently reportedly mutual interest between Gordon and the Bills. It is unclear what the dollar amount attached to those talks is, though.
Last year, Gordon recorded 612 yards on the ground and 296 yards through the air in 12 outings. During that span, he also amassed nine touchdowns total.
While those numbers were not great, in his three prior years he recorded 1,375 total yards from scrimmage and 12 total touchdowns in each season.
Will Gordon to Buffalo ultimately happen? Time will tell.
