Antonio Gates said he's completely fine playing a secondary role at 37 years old.
He knows the deal. "I've already said this to Keenan [Allen], because he’s going to have to take us to the promised land in the passing game," Gates said. "He's the guy. I have no problem with saying that. Hopefully, I can get situations and matchups I can take advantage of." Allen isn't the only guy Gates is behind; sophomore Hunter Henry is expected to take over as the every-down tight end this season, while Gates focuses more on third downs and touchdowns. Gates may have a couple TE1 weeks, but he's more of a mid-range TE2. Jun 13 - 8:26 PM
