Broncos Wire’s 90-man offseason roster series continues today with a look at eighth-year running back Melvin Gordon, No. 25.

Before the Broncos: Gordon (6-1, 215 pounds) was picked by the San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft out of Wisconsin. He went on to spend five years with the Chargers, totaling 6,113 yards from scrimmage and scoring 47 touchdowns in 67 games (62 starts).

Broncos tenure: After earning two Pro Bowl nods in San Diego/L.A., Gordon signed a two-year contract with the Broncos in 2020. Over the last two seasons, Gordon has totaled 2,275 yards from scrimmage while scoring 20 touchdowns. Denver re-signed him to a one-year extension this offseason.

Chances to make the 53-man roster: Gordon’s considered a lock to make the team and he’s expected to continue sharing touches with teammate Javonte Williams this season. Gordon and Williams were a productive one-two punch for the Broncos last year, so there’s no reason to change a working formula.
