You just never know....
I'd venture to say that unless another team grossly overpays they will match the offer .... and do it in a hurry :brickwall
Would you give up a 1st and 3rd rounder for Antonio Gates?
Good question. If it was one of the last "missing pieces" for us or was the route we were taking (to utilize the TE more than another blocker) - possibly.
As we stand now, no.
Couldnt have said it better myself. Also, We need our 1st round pick this year to grab the fanchise LT that we've been needing all this time.
Reportedly, Gates just signed a 6 year deal.
They even mentioned on 790 radio (this morning) that the Chargers had Gates sign the tender offer just so he could play in the Denver game week 2. Both sides planned to get him signed to an extension. We had ZERO chance of landing him.
there were rumors that he may play out the season and try for a bigger contract next offseason.. in which case I was hoping we would give the 1st and 3rd and grab him.. but he signed a six year deal... so that is caput.
Ive started to view TEs as a luxury. They are like putting flames on the side of your sportscar. They look nice and can make your ride that much sweeter.. but the car is just as capable of going fast without them.
lets get our engine torqued.. then worry about the paint job.
Gates signed a 6 year deal.
He signed a 6 year deal yesterday.
