Just a day after being released by the Denver Broncos, running back Melvin Gordon took to social media to snipe at Broncos fans.

In his most recent Instagram story, Gordon posted a picture of himself driving the white Ford Bronco that was transporting OJ Simpson in a 1994 police chase down the 91 Freeway in California.

In the caption, Gordon also wrote, “Hahaha boy Her fans was hell lmfaoo. Thank you all, including Broncos Country. At least let’s have a laugh on the way out.”

Gordon also posted a picture of him hugging cornerback Patrick Surtain ll on his Instagram with the caption: “Can’t say it’s been the easiest 3 years. But thanks anyway Broncos for helping me continue my dream.”

This comes after Gordon has been at odds with Broncos fans on social media for the past three seasons over his fidgety issues appearing in crucial parts of games.

In an April 2021 interview, Gordon spoke about how difficult his previous season was because of the fans.

“That was probably one of my most difficult seasons. i won’t lie Just because a lot of fans and a lot of people weren’t too happy about me coming in and Phil (Phillip Lindsay) wanting to get paid and stuff like that.” Gordon added, “It was tough, man, because I felt like a lot of people didn’t accept me.”

So far this season, the former Wisconsin Badger has fumbled the ball a total of five times, and it was the timing of the fumble that made matters worse.

On opening night against the Seattle Seahawks, Gordon fumbled near the goal line while trying to score fourth. Gordon then fumbled twice against the San Francisco 49ers, from which Denver recovered both times, and then fumbled on his first carry in Las Vegas as the Broncos neared field goal range. During that game, the Raiders returned his fumble for a touchdown, making it a nine-point swing.

Of his last seven fumbles with the Broncos, three were returned for a touchdown by the opposing team.

Gordon also struggles to catch the ball when passing. During his time with the Broncos, Gordon has averaged three drops per season.

Gordon became a liability for Denver and it was 11 weeks of that season before they realized he shouldn’t be carrying the ball for them to move forward.

The former Pro Bowl running back has a history of fumbling football throughout his career. In his five years with the Los Angeles Chargers, Gordon fumbled a total of 14 times.

During his 41 games with the Broncos, Gordon grounded the ball 12 times and nine of those fumbles were recovered by the opposing team.

Running back Latavius ​​Murray will be the lead back for the Broncos moving forward after Gordon’s release.

Murray leads the team with 209 yards in just five games and leads the team with three rushing touchdowns.

The Broncos will also activate Marlon Mack from their practice team after Denver brought him off the San Francisco 49ers practice team. Denver acquired Mack back in October to add some depth after the Broncos lost running back Mike Boone to an ankle injury.

Boone may come off injured reserve in Week 13.

The Broncos were recently hit by the injury bug when Chase Edmonds suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 11 against the Las Vegas Raiders. According to ESPN’s Adam SchefterEdmonds will be out for a couple of weeks.

Due to Edmonds’ injury, Denver will also call up Devine Ozigbo from the practice team to play the No. 3 running back against the Carolina Panthers this week.

Murray leads the team with 209 yards in just five games and leads the team with three rushing touchdowns.
