Melvin Gordon

Melvin Gordon is now just one away from collecting the entire set of AFC West teams.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Monday that the Kansas City Chiefs are expected to sign the two-time Pro Bowl running back to their practice squad.

The Denver Broncos released Gordon last week after three seasons. He’d gained 541 yards from scrimmage for the dismal Broncos offense, but was averaging a career-low 3.5 yards per carry and had fumbled five times.

That performance led to Gordon being benched last month. Then, the team made him the starter once again. After his release, Gordon told a local reporter he felt the team had made him a “scapegoat” for the offense’s woes.

Now, the 29-year-old running back will have the chance to revive his career with the Chiefs. Gordon played five seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers to begin his career, making the Pro Bowl in 2016 and 2018.

NFL fans reacting on Twitter don’t believe Gordon will make a difference for the Chiefs.

Can’t wait till the Chiefs are trying to run out the clock in the AFC Championship game and Gordon fumbles …” tweeted one fan.

“His fumbles are always in the worse spots. See fumble against at Chiefs last year,” tweeted another fan.
