Running back Melvin Gordon has now officially been a part of three of the four AFC West teams, joining the Chiefs earlier this week on the team’s practice squad.

Gordon had been with the Broncos since signing with the club as a free agent in 2020. But Denver cut him last week after he fumbled for the fifth time in 2022.

The Chiefs have played Gordon plenty of times since he was drafted by the Chargers in 2015. There’s a chance Gordon contributes sooner than later.

“We’ll just see where this thing goes, where he’s at, and where the running back situation is,” head coach Andy Reid said Wednesday, via Matt McMullen of the team’s website. “He’s sure been a heck of a player in this league.”

Gordon averaged 3.5 yards per carry with the Broncos this year, rushing for 318 yards with two touchdowns. He also caught 25 passes for 223 yards.

Gordon did record over 1,100 yards from scrimmage in each of the last two seasons for Denver. In 108 games with 94 starts, Gordon has rushed for 6,462 yards with 55 touchdowns and caught 309 passes for 2,467 yards with 14 TDs.

  1. At least we know how Mahomes, Reid and the Chiefs will blow it at home in the playoffs this year.

  2. Yes coach we know he has a fumbling problem. Maybe you can teach him how to not lose the football?

  3. Current odds of Gordon even suiting up in a Chiefs uniform, is slightly less than the odds of the Broncos finishing with a winning record this year.

  4. All the remaining coaches the Chiefs face are now planning what to do with the fumble that will be gifted to them by Gordon when they play.

  5. He needs to shoot Tiki Barber a call or a text. Tom Coughlin cured his fumbling issue for the most part…”high and tight”.

  6. Gordon fake fumbles till Broncos cut him. He knew that Broncos not making a playoff for next 4 yrs because of Russell Wilson play poorly.
