The Los Angeles Chargers will keep running back Melvin Gordon through at least the 2019 season after they picked up the fifth-year option on his contract Monday.
General manager Tom Telesco announced the news at a press conference, per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.
Warren Sharp broke down the history of fifth-year options for running backs.

Everything else is hustle and projection: Bryan doesn’t find the ball well on misdirection, he lacks a plan when blockers latch on, and he can be steered away from the quarterback because he doesn’t control his momentum once he blasts through the line. Bryan’s combine results were yummy, but his collegiate production (5.5 career sacks and just 30 solo tackles in three years, one as a starter) are low, even by the standards of interior linemen.
While Verlander was pitching a three-hitter, striking out 14 and not walking anyone working eight shutout innings, five Yankees pitchers kept it a nothing-nothing ballgame deep into this Texas night at Minute Maid Park.
And then after Verlander’s night ended after 105 pitches, the Yankees promptly pulled out a series-evening 4-0 win by teeing off on Astros closer Ken Giles.
The first three runs came courtesy of catcher Gary Sanchez, who walloped a two-on, one-out homer after the Astros had a mound meeting to decide if they wanted to load the bases for Aaron Hicks with first base open.
They opted to pitch to Sanchez and Giles’ first pitch was a knee-high inside fastball that was crushed and carried over the wall in dead center.
