Los Angeles Chargers: Updated fits for Melvin Gordon
By Jason Reed
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Los Angeles Chargers were one of the finalists to sign Tom Brady this offseason but it was announced earlier in the week that Brady would be taking his talents to Tampa Bay and would be joining Bruce Arians on the Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers have some intriguing targets for Brady, so it is not a surprise why he would be intrigued by the team. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin were the best receiving duo in the NFL last season and the Bucs also have a solid tight end group.
The Bucs have the 14th pick in the draft so they are going to be able to make some solid additions to the team that way and still, even with Brady’s contract, would have enough money to bring Gordon in on a $8-10 million contract and still have room for the NFL Draft.
We know that Brady is going to have a say in the roster decisions and one thing that has always had in his career are great dual-threat running backs. With Ronald Jones being the best running back on the team, Brady might look at someone such as Gordon and deem him as a necessity for the team.
Would it be the best use of the Bucs remaining cap space? That is up for debate. However, after landing Tom Brady the Bucs are going to do whatever it takes to make it work out, and if that means signing Melvin Gordon, then so be it.
