In Super Bowl LVII on Sunday night, the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 to win their second title in four years. Many people said after the game that although though Chiefs running back Melvin Gordon didn’t help his team win, he still won a ring.
After the game, a Los Angeles Chargers account tweeted, “Melvin Gordon was the kid in the group project who slapped his name on the final paper.. but he got a Super Bowl ring out of it.”
The finest response to the tweet came from Gordon. Since the photo stated everything, the 29-year-old said nothing. He cited the original piece and included a picture of himself holding the Lombardi Trophy while smoking a cigar.
In November, the two-time Pro Bowler joined the Chiefs after being released by the Denver Broncos. Gordon hasn’t participated in a match since joining the Chiefs in the week before.
Before being cut by the Broncos, Gordon carried the ball 90 times for 318 yards, two touchdowns, and five fumbles in 10 games this year. Gordon called his move from the Chiefs practise squad to the Broncos main roster a “humbling” experience.
Gordon signed with the Chargers in 2015 after being selected with the No. 15 overall pick, where he played until 2019. He scored 36 rushing touchdowns from 2016 to 2019. Later, he transferred to the Broncos, another AFC West team, where he ran for 17 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons. He then maintained the divisional trend with the Chiefs.
