COSTA MESA, Calif. — Los Angeles Chargers coach Anthony Lynn and tight end Antonio Gates had a meeting of the minds this week and determined that the longtime Chargers tight end will attend former teammate LaDainian Tomlinson’s Hall of Fame induction on Saturday.
“Antonio’s going to go and be with LT at the Hall of Fame, and Philip’s going to stay and be with the team,” Lynn said. “We’re going to the StubHub for the first time. It’s a dress rehearsal for our organization, for our players. We’ve got a lot of things to work through that day, and Philip wants to be there. He was torn. He wants to be with LT as well.
“But like I said, we’re all good. LT’s happy. And this whole deal is about LT, anyway.”
