Former Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, announced Tuesday on social media that he was officially retiring from the NFL. Gates never played college football, but after not getting an opportunity in the National Basketball Association, he worked for the San Diego Chargers.
Gates said that he will remain with the Chargers just in a different capacity. You always had to account for #85's whereabouts and still, knowing all this, he managed to catch more touchdowns than any tight end to ever play the game. "His contributions to our organization over the course of an unprecedented 16-year career, both on the field and in the community, can not be overstated". He rebounded with a couple of strong seasons in 2013 and 2014, tallying over 800 yards in both years and recording 12 scores in the latter season, but that was the last time we saw Gates among the NFL's elite.
In the final minute, he caught an eight-yard scoring pass from Philip Rivers.
In the team's statement, Rivers praised Gates for his competitiveness and friendship, and expressed his love for his teammate of 15 years. At that moment, Saban, the then Michigan State head coach, is changing Gates' overall view of his possible career in football. "It pretty much meant, if he is one-on-one, throw it there". Gates had 28 receptions for 329 yards and three touchdowns against the Patriots in seven regular season games. His TD in last year's defeat against New England made him the oldest narrow end in the history of the league at 38 years and 209 days.
