According to ESPN, Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates wants to continue playing in the NFL. He considered retirement before signing with the team this summer.
“I just don’t see myself walking away with this taste,” he said. “But that has to be a collective decision. I can’t just want to come back. So we’ll see how it goes.”
If Hunter Henry never went down last May with a torn ACL, there’s a very good chance that Gates would not have re-signed with the team. It is not a given he’ll return to the Chargers in 2019.
The future Hall of Famer, who will be 39-years-old on June 18th, made 16 appearances with 1 start this season. He had 28 receptions for 333 yards and two touchdowns.

Gates also scored a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4. In addition, he scored a touchdown in the Chargers final game of the season against the New England Patriots on Sunday.
