"When you take on a position, you understand that multitasking is a big part of what you do," Gates explained.  "But I like to think that playing tight end in this system alone is probably the 33rd hardest position in the league other than the 32 other quarterbacks. And that is because what you are required to do in this system. I don’t know what other teams require their tight ends to do, but for the most part, what we are asked to do in this system is a task."
