    Filed to ESPN: Chargers TE Antonio Gates signed a 5-year contract extension that makes him the NFL's highest paid tight end.

    Certainly not good for Vincent Jackson or Marcus McNeil.

    I think it would be very good for OD if he proves himself this year. Mo money.

    I say that we see how good Thor can be and use Daniels as trade bait if he can perform pretty well.
