Former Chargers tight end Antonio Gates will have to wait a little longer if he wants his bust on display in Canton, OH.

At the NFL Honors ceremony, held Thursday night, the list of inductees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame was announced, and Gates’ name wasn’t on the list.

This year’s list of inductees includes:

  • Julius Peppers
  • Devin Hester
  • Dwight Freeney
  • Andre Johnson
  • Patrick Willis
  • Steve McMichael
  • Randy Gradishar

Gates finished his 16-year career, all with the Bolts, with 955 receptions for 11,841 yards and 116 touchdowns. His 116 touchdown receptions are the most by a tight end in NFL history.

Gates was a five-time All-Pro selection and made eight Pro Bowl teams. He was inducted into the Chargers Hall of Fame.
