Melvin Gordon has only spent two seasons with the Denver Broncos so far, but he’s already left his mark in the team’s record books.
Gordon’s rushed for 1,904 yards over the last two years, which puts him 15th on the team’s all-time rushing list. If he maintains that average of 952 yards per season this year, he’d jump into 10th place on the team’s all-time rushing list with 2,856 yards, one spot below Super Bowl champion C.J. Anderson (3,051 yards).
To be precise, Gordon is 750 yards away from jumping Jon Keyworth for the 10th spot on Denver’s all-time rushing list (2,653 yards).
Gordon’s 17 rushing touchdowns are tied with Phillip Lindsay for the 11th-most in franchise history. Gordon needs four TDs this year to jump Anderson (20 TDs) and rank 10th. A 10-touchdown season would put Gordon seventh on the team’s all-time rushing TD list, just below Clinton Portis (29 TDs).
Here’s a look at the team’s current top-10 rushing leaders.
1. Terrell Davis
2. Floyd Little
3. Sammy Winder
4. Otis Armstrong
5. Mike Anderson
6. Knowshon Moreno
7. John Elway
8. Clinton Portis
9. C.J. Anderson
10. Jon Keyworth
Gordon’s 6,144 career rushing yards and his 53 career rushing TDs both rank fourth among active players under contract in the NFL today.
