Rivers says he's pulling for Gordon amid holdout

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said he's pulling for Melvin Gordon to get what's best for him as the running back continues to hold out for a new contract.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he's talked to Melvin Gordon and clarified his comments on the RB's holdout situation that he felt have been misconstrued nationally. "I know Melvin knows I'm pulling for him," Rivers said. "And in saying that, that means you want what's best for him. You want him to feel great. You him to be at peace with how it all ends, and hopefully it's right here. He knows that. I doubt anything I said will make PFT headlines, but I think those that know me will know that's what I meant all along."
