Chiefs reportedly signing former Broncos' running back Melvin Gordon


(610 Sports) – Former Broncos' running back Melvin Gordon wasn't out of a job for long.

According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Gordon will reportedly be staying in the AFC West and signing with the Kansas City Chiefs. Gordon was cut by the Denver Broncos one week ago, following a game in which he lost his fifth fumble of the season.

Gordon had 90 carries for 318 yards and 25 catches for 223 yards for the Broncos in 10 games before being released.

Gordon had split touches early in the season with second-year back Javonte Williams, before Williams suffered an ACL tear in week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders. Following William's injury, the team signed veteran running back Latavius Murray and acquired Chase Edmonds in a trade deadline deal with the Miami Dolphins. Murray's surprising production made Gordon expendable due to his fumbling issues.

A first-round pick of the Chargers in 2015, Gordon is a two-time Pro Bowler who has played his entire eight-year career in the AFC West. He’ll now head to his third AFC West team.
