Here are few of the golden lyrics from the Chargers 2016 season. The Rookie...

Antonio Gates to return in 2017 - Antonio Gates News

There have been conflicting reports throughout the year suggesting that Gates would retire following the 2016 season. However, the future Hall of Fame tight end told the media Wednesday that he will likely return in 2017.

Three Best Things From Chargers-Chiefs

Three Best Things From Chargers-Chiefs

Here’s the three best takeaways from the blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The San Diego Chargers were crushed by the division rival Kansas City Chiefs 37-27. The offense, defense, and special teams were all terrible. There were some positives sprinkled in, but overall this was an awful performance from the Chargers. The Chargers top two draft picks ended the season on a high note and runningback Andre Williams played well. Also, Antonio Gates was able to tie the record for most touchdown receptions by tight ends with 111. Even with the occasional highlight, this was a pathetic...

Hunter Henry will be Chargers' featured tight end next year

San Diego Chargers tight end Hunter Henry will be the team's "featured tight end" next season, ESPN reports. What It Means: Antonio Gates plans to play next year, but ESPN reports the veteran is "well aware" he will take a backseat to Henry. The Chargers might also ask Gates to take a pay cut from the $5 million he is owed in salary and bonuses next year. Henry caught seven touchdowns and looked surprisingly comfortable for a rookie tight end in a limited role this season. Among the 34 tight ends with at least 45 targets going into Week 17, Henry's Reception Net Expected Points...
