Pelissero: Melvin Gordon expected to sign with Chiefs

Tom Pelissero of the NFL reported Monday that free agent running back Melvin Gordon is expected to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs.

What It Means:

Gordon was released from the Broncos before Week 12 after committing his fifth fumble of the season in Week 11 (the most among running backs in the league). It now appears that the Chiefs, who recently lost Clyde Edwards-Helaire to the injured reserve, are willing to take a chance on the veteran back. He is expected to sign to the team's practice squad this week.

Gordon was not having a strong season in Denver prior to his release, but hopefully a fresh start in a functional offense can help revitalize him. He has 90 rushes for 318 yards and 2 touchdowns, and has caught 25 passes for 223 yards so far this season.
