Rivers to Antonio Gates for 6! Yes, you will hear announcers excitedly express this sentiment for one more season. Great news if you're a Los Angeles Chargers fan. Fantastic news if you're QB Phillip Rivers.
ESPN broke the news first, others soon followed and now the NFL world is aware the Chargers and Gates came to an agreement on a one year deal.
Virgil Green was doing all he could do and indeed has had a solid camp and preseason. The team needed more. They needed what Hunter Henry's torn ACL took away from them. Gates gives them that. He is an NFL veteran and after 15 seasons had no problems sitting out camp. More importantly, he and Philip Rivers won't have to spend hours and hours trying to build chemistry. That's already in the bag.
It's not surprising news. Everyone knew this could happen. It is comforting news however and puts the Chargers in a much better position to contend this season.
The sun rose in the east this morning. Gates is back with Rivers. It's going to be a good year.
