Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon wants to return to the team, but also wants to make some serious money before that happens.

The NFL superstar and Wisconsin legend is currently holding out and has made it clear he won’t report to training camp without a new deal. If that doesn’t happen, then he wants to be traded. However, he still wants to return to the team if it’s the best option. (RELATED: Unnamed NFL Team Reportedly Willing To Make Melvin Gordon Highest Paid Running Back In The League)

“I want to end up with the Chargers. That’s my home…I want to get paid. That’s just kind of what it is, you know, and hopefully, I end up a Charger. That’s the goal,” Gordon said Saturday in a video posted on Twitter by Bobby Belt.

You can watch his full comments below.

Gordon is one of the best players in the entire NFL, and the Chargers should absolutely pay him. He’s still got a few years left of great play left in him, and they need all the help they can get if they want to make a deep postseason run.

Keep the dynamic running back on the roster and happy. That’s going to cost some money, and Los Angeles would be dumb to not pay it.

Running backs like Gordon don’t come along very often.

This is an easy decision, or it at least should be an easy decision for all the parties involved. Gordon is the reason the passing game can even work.

If they want Philip Rivers airing it out, then they need to take care of Gordon. It’s that simple.

Pay the man, Los Angeles! This isn’t hard to figure out.
