    Wonder what we'll have to pony up to keep Gates.

    He's pretty good but no where near that good.
    He's not Gates, Gonzalas, or even Heap.

    His father is an a**hole and a**holes breed a**holes!!!
    That's why I refuse to buy his father's jersey.

    I still wouldn't call Jr "great" (as a player).
    He's still young and I'm sure he'll get better but I still don't think he'll be one of the best.

    It was already going to cost a lot to keep Gates, and now it will cost even more.

    They will pay him, though. He's that important.

    Bucs are getting really stupid!!!

    First they fire Gruden.
    Then they release Garcia.
    Now they give Jr. more money than Gates and Gonzalez.

    They may be headed back to the days when they were known as the "Yucks."

    What is TB thinking? This guy hasn't proven himself and they give him this much guaranteed? Wow. This just seems like a bad move, at least make him prove himself in your system for ONE year first...

    If that becomes the going rate, then Gates is a steal at 6m a year base IMO...

    Sounds like a desperate team with a lot of free money. Is that all they needed to win the big one? Too much of a clown to pay any attention to his stats but I'm pretty sure he can't hold his daddy's jock let alone be in the class of Gates. Scary waste of money.

    Well, I'm sure that this will catch Gates' attention.

    As for K2 - he'll be involved in a shooting in Miami before Sept.

    Gates has set the gold standard for TEs in the league for the past 4-5 years. Winslow has been riding on his dad's good name and his college career for too long. Junior just isn't that good!

    It looks like it will take a battleship full of buck$ to keep Gates here in SD.

    If this clown got 36 Mil, Gates deserves 72 Mill, Jeezus, that guy got away with Murder! K2 is an overrated, arrogant headcase and isn't HALF the TE Gates or Gonzales is. The only HOF thing he has is his NAME. That's IT!!!
