Chargers Not Sure About the Future of Tight End Antonio Gates

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said Thursday that he is uncertain about veteran tight end Antonio Gates‘ future with the team according to Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.com.

“We’ll probably let some time go a little bit after the season I’ll sit down with Antonio and just kind of talk to him and see what his thoughts are, what he’s thinking and see where our thoughts are and what we’re thinking,” Telesco said.

“I don’t have an answer for that right now.” Gates himself has already said he wants to return for a 16th season and he seems to understand that, if he stays with the Chargers, at this point in his career he will be playing second fiddle to Hunter Henry. Gates caught 30 passes for 316 yards and three touchdown in 16 games in 2017. Whenever he does decide to hang up his cleats, the Pro Football Hall of Fame will undoubtely be calling five years later.
