Los Angeles Chargers

It’s almost Week 1 and Antonio Gates is still a free agent.

A Gates reunion with the Chargers seemed possible following Hunter Henry’s torn ACL, but the offense appears ready to move forward with Virgil Green and Braedon Bowman. Green has never gained more than 237 yards in a season since entering the league in 2011, but he’s a 6-foot-5, 255-pound target with a 92nd-percentile SPARQ-x score on an offense short on red-zone options.

Jerick McKinnon (knee) and Matt Breida (shoulder) are expected to suit up for the Week 1 matchup against the Vikings, but recently signed Alfred Morris made a push for a roster spot with a hard-earned 84 yards on 17 carries while working alongside Jimmy Garoppolo and the starters last week.

The 49ers paid McKinnon way too much money to sit on the bench, although the team’s backfield pecking order grows more mysterious by the day.
