Apparently Antonio Gates changed up his diet a la Tony Gonzalez to try and prolong his career and get in the best shape possible. After multiple foot ailments over the years, its good to see that he is healthy and looking good physically this preseason. Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego noticed that Gates is more chiseled and quicker in training camp. Gates is trying to prove his critics wrong that he is done:
“I know you’re not supposed to listen to what people say, but there’s some collective things that got me motivated,” Gates said.
I know Gates was a beast back in the day, but for the 33 year old TE, the arrow is pointing down. His TDs have sustained for the most part, but his receptions and yardage totals have dropped. He could have a resurgence this season, but his 8th round ADP is still too rich for me.
