NFL free agency officially began Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET when the new league year got underway, but plenty of moves have already been made. 

One position suffering, though, is running back.

Chief among the position’s options is Melvin Gordon, whose past five seasons with the San Diego (2015-16) and Los Angeles (2017-19) Chargers came to an end after a four-game holdout was unsuccessful.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection (2016, ’18) and No. 15 overall pick in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft logged 12 games (11 starts) with 162 carries for 612 yards (3.8 average) and eight touchdowns with 42 receptions for 296 yards (7.0 average) and one touchdown.

The production was still there, but Gordon turns 27 on April 13th and enters his sixth NFL season, wherever he signs.

ESPN insider Adam Schefter provided the latest update on Gordon’s free agency Thursday afternoon.

“It’s a similar situation at running back right now — it’s been very slow going for running backs so far in free agency,” Schefter said on ESPN’s noon edition of SportsCenter. “Melvin Gordon is still on the street, still without a job and the running back market is very soft out there. So Melvin Gordon is looking for the right spot. We’ll see if he can find one. It’s not been easy so far.”

That holdout was a huge waste of time and money. 

Holding out doesn’t always pan out.
