Melvin Gordon isn't getting a new contract from the Chargers

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

According to Schefter, Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said that all talks have been postponed just one day after the team granted Gordon permission to seek a trade.

Gordon technically is under contract on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal, which would pay him $5.605 million for 2019.

Melvin Gordon's loss in LA could end up being the Philadelphia Eagles gain.

Saturday's deadline to finalize 53-man rosters has come and gone, and so has the Los Angeles Chargers' patience with Melvin Gordon.

The Chargers originally selected Gordon out of Wisconsin with the No. 15 pick in the 2015 draft. He's led the team in rushing for three straight seasons, recording 885 rushing yards in 12 games while adding 490 receiving yards a year ago.

Gordon has 3,628 rushing yards on 897 attempts with 28 rushing touchdowns through his four National Football League seasons.

As for the 49ers, they placed running back Jerick McKinnon on season-ending injured reserve, leaving them with Tevin Coleman, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert in the backfield. The team placed Jerick McKinnon on season-ending injured reserve for the second straight season and also signed Jeff Wilson to its practice squad. He took to social media and fans began to notice his peculiar activity when he started following Instagram accounts of several teams. I'm just pointing out an interesting tidbit that was sent to us.
