Antonio Gates 'in great shape' and 'moving well'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, 34, turned in an outstanding practice Tuesday, reports ESPN.com. Gates scored two touchdowns in red-zone drills and made "one of his trademark acrobatic catches over the middle of the field with safety Darrell Stuckey in coverage," the report said.

Gates, the website added, looks to be "in great shape and has been moving well during camp."

Antonio Gates won't be forgotten in San Diego
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

While there's much ballyhoo over Ladarius Green this summer, 34-year-old tight end Antonio Gates still figures to be the most targeted tight end on the Chargers roster. ESPN notes that Gates can still beat one-on-one coverage, especially in the red zone, and that makes him an asset to the offense.

'Very personal situation' keeps Antonio Gates from minicamp
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Tuesday that veteran tight end Antonio Gates wouldn't be at minicamp this week as he tends to a "very personal situation" in his hometown of Detroit. The Union-Tribune of San Diego reports that Gates hasn't been with the team at any practice open to the media this offseason.

"You tell him you love him, support him and you're with him," quarterback Philip Rivers said. " ... When the time is right and everything is taken care of, he'll be back. We look forward to getting him back."

Ladarius Green took the first-team reps in his place.

Chargers tight ends barely a factor
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught two passes for 10 yards in the playoff loss at Denver. He was targeted four times.

Fellow tight end Ladarius Green caught two of his three targets for 7 yards, dropping a perfect throw that would have converted a key third down.

Gates, 33, is scheduled to return in 2014 at a $5 million base salary, while Green is slated to earn $570,000.
