Chargers’ Gates surprised by defense in Denver


Count San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates among those who is surprised by the play of the Denver Broncos defense. Gates joined NFL Network’s Around the League on Friday, telling Kara Henderson he sees a different defense in Denver this season.

“You know what? I am surprised,” Gates said. “That’s not the same team [from] last season. They’re playing very hard, they’re playing together as a team. You get caught up in all the transitions of them having trades and losing key guys.  But I think, collectively as a team, they’re a much better team.”

Gates also discusses Monday night’s matchup against the Broncos, the leadership of LaDainian Tomlinson, the impact of the tight end position in the NFL and more. View the video above for the full interview.
