The Denver Broncos released running back Melvin Gordon on Monday after yet another fumble.

Sunday’s fumble came inside the Las Vegas Raiders three-yard line after scoring a 1st and a clutch goal, but lost the ball, pushing the Broncos back several yards and forcing them to kick a basket that has been blocked.

While Gordon didn’t lose the breakaway, it was his fifth set of the season – he lost two.

Gordon took to Instagram after his release and made a meme of himself: he superimposed his face on a photo of the infamous OJ Simpson/White Bronco lawsuit.

Gordon also wrote a message to Broncos fans.

“Hahaha [laughing emoji] Boy y’all fans was hell lmfaooo. Thanks to you too, the country of the broncos. Let’s at least laugh on our way out,” Gordon wrote.

Gordon was a pleasant surprise last year. Despite an impressive rookie season from Javonte Williams in 2021, Gordon still passed for 4.5 yards per carry, rushing for 918 yards on 203 attempts and adding 28 receptions for 213 yards — he also scored 10 total touchdowns.

But he’s only scored twice this year and is averaging just 3.5 yards per carry as a result of Williams’ torn ACL.

Gordon spent his first five seasons with the Chargers before heading to Denver in 2020.
