Melvin Gordon seems to be excited to be on his way out of Denver.

The veteran running back, who was released on Monday, shared an edited photo of himself driving O.J. Simpson's infamous white Ford Bronco on his Instagram story Tuesday.

"Hahaha boy y'all fans was hell lmfaooo," Gordon wrote. "Thank y'all too Broncos country. Let's at least laugh on the way out."

Gordon may have been trying to have some fun here, but not all Broncos fans are in the mood to laugh.

"Lmao I don’t think @Melvingordon25 realized how many games he’s cost us!" one tweeted.

"My guess is he dropped the phone before he hit send. See ya," another added, referring to Gordon's penchant for fumbling.

"Lol 'y’all was hell' like Broncos fans were being unreasonable in disliking a player who fumbled in 9 games this year (2 getting returned for TD’s)," a third fan echoed. 

"I wouldn’t trust Melvin to hang onto the wheel," chimed in another fan. "He’s not wrong about the fans, but we’re only hell because we’ve been dealing with hellish football for eons now."

"Did he get this post typed without fumbling the phone though?" another fan asked. 

Despite some of his struggles, we'd expect Gordon to find another job elsewhere down the stretch. Broncos fans won't be wishing him well though if they see him again.
