Clay Travis: 'Athletic Kids Aren't Gonna Want To Play Running Back Anymore'

Running back Ezekiel Elliott has earned a new deal but the Dallas Cowboys have not given into his demands yet. Los Angeles Chargers' running back Melvin Gordon has been balling out the past two seasons and the Chargers are playing hardball so far when it comes to giving him a new contract (as all of their RB's averaged 4 yards per carry last season.)

Clay Travis and Jason Martin discuss whether or not Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon should be the exceptions to the new NFL philosophy of not paying RB's. Clay says that he thinks that at a youth level the most talented kids are going to steer away from the position, thanks to it now being undervalued in professional football.
