The prospect of tight end Antonio Gates returning to the Chargers has been on the table since Hunter Henry tore his ACL in spring work William Perry Jersey , but it didn’t become a reality until Sunday.
Gates has re-signed with the only NFL team he’s ever played for and he’ll play a 16th season alongside Virgil Green and Sean Culkin at tight end in Los Angeles. Gates has slowed over the years, but that doesn’t make General Manager Tom Telesco any less happy to have him in the fold.
“I’m grateful that he wants to come back and play with us,” Telesco said, via the Orange County Register. “But I’m also grateful — and this is probably more important than the first part — he’s coming back for all the right reasons. He’s not coming back to put up more statistics. He’s not coming back to prove anything to anybody John Kelly Jersey , because he doesn’t have to do that. He’s coming back because he loves his teammates, and I think he sees something special in this football team that he wants to be a part of. That’s exciting.”
Telesco said the team will wait to make a call about Gates playing against the Chiefs in Week One. One way or another, it won’t be long before Gates is back in his familiar uniform.
The Packers signed a running back on Saturday and they added another one to the roster on Sunday.
The team announced the addition of Bronson Hill to their backfield. LeShun Daniels signed on Saturday when the Packers placed Akeem Judd on the reserve/retired list.
Both signings come after Jamaal Williams sprained his ankle in Thursday’s game against the Steelers. Aaron Jones, who will serve a two-game suspension to open the year Tyrone Crawford Jersey , has also dealt with hamstring trouble this summer.
Hill had one carry in two games with the Cardinals last year and he ran twice for 11 yards in three appearances for the Jaguars during the 2016 season. He’s also spent time with the Bills, Bears, Dolphins, Saints Jarius Wright Jersey , Bengals and Vikings. He was announced as one of the first 100 signees of the Alliance of American Football, but AAF deals have an out for players to pursue NFL opportunities.
