Default Gates signs, finally

"Chargers Pro Bowl tight end Antonio Gates has agreed to terms on a new six-year contract. Additional terms of the contract were not disclosed. Gates will sign the contract Tuesday afternoon. "

I hope they showed him the money. This shit was really stressing me out. Bad enough we won't have him for the opener, but this should solve most everything. Please God let him sign this afternoon without any more headaches.

Oh, and what the fuck are the the chargers FO thinking fucking this guy around. It's not like we have amazing depth that we can survive without a key player or two. We need everyone we can get and then some.

The contract was for a whopping $380,000. They pretty much showed him the door. The Bolts will have the rights to match any offer next year, but I doubt they'll be able to keep him, he'll be getting some sick offers...unless of course, last year was a total fluke and he stinks up the place this year...

...but even still someone will drop some huge coin on him next year regardless.

Late.

The 380,000 was mostly to get him into camp and with the team. He's signed a 6 year deal for a lot of money. Prolly not as much as Gonzalas, but was plenty for Gates to be happy. So doesn't look like we'll have to deal with free agency and Gates for a number of years. Unless of course, he develops a TO complex, but he seems like a pretty decent guy and all reports have him being happy to be back with the team and happy with the situation.

Im grateful to the Chargers for seeing potential in me two years ago and now for having faith in me and wanting me to be a part of this team for a long time.

I did find it odd that he actually signed a $380,000 offer...oh well, one less thing for the Bolts to worry about.

BTW - Fantasy Tip...pick up the Chargers' #2 HB for your bench. In the highly unlikely event that LT goes down, that kid can fucking run...as good a backup plan as any.

^actually, they might use him like they did with Chatman last year and give him more carries as the season goes on to keep LT fresh.
