    Melvin Gordon RB, Denver Broncos
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Broncos signed free agent RB Melvin Gordon.

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports it's a two-year, $16 million deal with $13.5 million guaranteed. The Broncos could certainly use an additional weapon or two on offense for second-year QB Drew Lock, but addressing the RB position is curious considering Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman were largely fine in 2019. MGIII is certainly the better pass-down RB from the group, although Lindsay (4.9 YPC) and Freeman (3.9) have had similar-to-better success over their careers on a per-rush basis compared to Gordon (4). This is a complete mess as far as fantasy is concerned, as a committee backfield is incredibly likely unless we see an additional move take place.

    As a Singletary owner I’m very pleased he didn’t go to Buffalo

    LONG LIVE DOGGIE!!!! Wahoo!!

  • Kills the values of Gordon, Lindsay and Freeman! Add the Denver backfield to the list of RBs to avoid along with NE and SF.

    Lindsay can be easily cut, fwiw. I think he was an undrafted FA for the Broncos or something similar to that.

    My understanding is that Denver likes Lindsay more than Freeman so I would assume Freeman gets moved.

    Gotcha. I know for sure Freeman got a better contract so figured it’d be easier for them to move the cheaper guy.

    Lindsay will stay. But Gordon is the guy.

    Freeman may stick around but he is RB3

  • I have the 2021 1st round pick of the guy who has Freeman and Lindsay as his top 2 RBs, so I was thrilled to hear about Gordon going there. lol

    What a horrible landing spot for fantasy purposes ...

    For real football purposes it’s a great move. They have on paper probably the top 3 RB corps in the league.

    They have bigger needs than a 3rd starting RB. Not a smart move on their part.

    Yes sir....and with a young qb they want to lead the league in rushing attempts...

    Agree. That money could have been better spent elsewhere

    Broncos salaries for Rb are $600k for Lindsay & $800k for Freeman. They can afford Gordon.

    Qb, Top wr, Te & guard all on rookie contracts. Juwan James, Glasgow & eating $10Mil in Flacco’s deal after he’s cut are their only big contracts.

    Just bc can offered it doesn't mean should do it. I dont hate the move I'd just personally wouldn't have done it. But it is a move that puts fans in the seats so maybe if I was in the GMs position I would view it differently
