    I wish he went to the NFC but at least he's not in our division.

    I’ve never been a fan. Thought he was too injury prone and not an elite runner like many make him out to be.

    He's a stud out of the backfield catching the ball and in the right offense would be great. Imagine him on the Chiefs.

    As far as injury he's played in over 13 games every year except last year where he played in 12 and missed 4 days because of the holdout.

    When you are not paying a QB (or really any good players not named von miller) you can afford to do things like this. Gordon may quickly become Drew Lock's favorite thing.

    He wanted over $10 million and got stuck with 8 mil. Like Le'Veon last year without the sitting out the year

    Chargers offered him $10M last year but he wanted Zeke money. He must have went to the Lev Bell school of negotiations.

    Gurly and Bell wanted to reset the RB market value.....and they did.

    They showed that teams shouldn't pay outrageous money for RBs and every RB in the NFL will now make less for their efforts.

    Denver could be a really good team next year. Won't win the division because of the Chiefs but a wildcard spot could be in play.
    Mock: 2. Antoine Winfield Jr, S/SCB, Minnesota 3. Darnell Mooney, WR, Tulane 4. Tanner Muse, LB, Clemson 4. Jon Runyan Jr, OG, Michigan 6. Sewo Olonilua, RB, TCU 7. Bravvion Roy, NT, Baylor

    TEACHER: The “alligator” eats the bigger number.

    GORDON: So, the alligator eats 10 instead of 13???

    BELL: No dummy... he eats 8. Duh.

    That's true, but I am curious to see what happens with Christian McCaffrey. That guy is the Panthers offense, and he deserves some serious money IMO. The RBs are screwed under the current rookie pay scale, as they have a shorter NFL lifespan on average and do their best work in their first 5-6 years. By the time they get to the end of their cheaper rookie deal, teams are likely not going to throw money at them because they often start to decline around 29 years of age.
