The Los Angeles Chargers have reached out to Antonio Gates about a possible reunion.

The Chargers have left open the possibility of re-signing Gates in the wake of Hunter Henry's season-ending ACL injury.

"Obviously, Antonio would be a natural fit," Tom Telesco said on San Diego station 97.3 FM. "He's someone that we have talked to. We've talked to his representatives. Sometimes, it's not just as easy as saying, 'Hey, let's just bring him back. Let's go.'"

Gates made $5 million last season and could look for a similar offer despite turning 38 later this month.
