  Falcons | Julio Jones ties club record    Sun Sep 20, 07:52 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones had 13 catches on 15 targets for 135 yards in a 24-20 win over the New York Giants in Week 2, tying former TE Tony Gonzalez for the most catches in a single game.

Footballguys view: The Falcons offense runs through Jones as much as any offense in the league runs through a wide receiver. He could threaten Marvin Harrison's single season reception record if he stays healthy.

  Broncos | Julius Thomas works with Tony Gonzalez    Thu Oct 16, 10:38 PM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas received several tips from Tony Gonzalez this offseason. 'I wasn't going to rest on what I did last year,' Thomas said. 'I was really determined to come in and keep working and try to find every way I could to get better.'

Footballguys view: The work Thomas did this offseason is certainly helping him dominate this season. He's the top tight end in fantasy football, and Thomas is leading the league with nine touchdown receptions so far. With the way that he's catching touchdowns on such a frequent basis, he could surpass the single-season record (17) for touchdowns by tight ends in a season (Rob Gronkowski, 2011).

  NFL | Tony Gonzalez could consider returning    Thu Feb 6, 06:56 PM

Retired TE Tony Gonzalez admitted that he may consider returning to a team during the stretch run next season. 'Maybe, if the team is hot in November, 9-2 or something, I could come back for the last two months,' Gonzalez said.

Footballguys view: Gonzalez is like a comic-book hero, he's never really retired. We're expecting the Falcons to bounce back in 2014. They could be hot by the time Thanksgiving rolls around. Gonzalez isn't at the top of his game anymore, but he's not washed up either. His return would certainly help the team.

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez said he is at peace with his decision to retire this offseason.

Footballguys view: Gonzalez came back for one more year in 2013, and things didn't go as planned. He could still play, so be prepared to hear stories about him being lured out of retirement.

  Falcons | Tony Gonzalez won't change his mind    Thu Dec 19, 01:04 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez remains set on retiring after the season. 'I could keep playing. I know I could.... But it's over,' Gonzalez said. He would consider continuing to play if there were a team based out of Los Angeles.

Footballguys view: We hate to wave goodbye to Tony G on a note like this, but even after a poor season he's done. Maybe the poor season even solidified it. We have him going out on a relatively high note though--you can start him as a low-end TE1 this week.

  Falcons | Tony Gonzalez joins elite club    Sun Dec 15, 06:11 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez had team-highs with six receptions, 62 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins. Gonzalez also went over 15,000 receiving yards for his career, joining former WRs Isaac Bruce, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens and Jerry Rice in the elite club.

Footballguys view: Gonzalez is winding down his NFL career with play that shows that he is a still a strong NFL player in this late stage of his career. Tim Wright had a big game today against Gonzalez's Week 16 opponent, San Francisco, so his owners can likely feel ok about having him in their lineups.

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

Footballguys view: Gonzalez hasn't been a very good start for most of the season, but two scores in two weeks makes him a decent emergency tight end against a vulnerable Washington defense. He's a fringe TE1 but the floor could be low.

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) is expected to play in the team's Week 14 game. Gonzalez has been questionable all week with a toe injury.

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is questionable for Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It sounds as if he'll be a game-time decision. Gonzalez has missed only two games in his 17-year career.

Footballguys view: Even if Gonzalez plays, he has been struggling to make a splash in the box score lately. Try to go in another direction if you have a decent #2 option.

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) is out of practice Friday, Nov. 15.

Footballguys view: Gonzalez might give it a go, but he has been coming up small in the box score anyway, so it is probably better to pick up a tight end like Scott Chandler, Rob Housler, or one of the Eagles tight ends off of the waiver wire this week. Rookie Levine Toilolo could get a large role in Gonzalez's absence.

Footballguys view: Should be nothing hinky going on here, just another veteran's day off. Gonzalez has been struggling just like the rest of the offense. He's a low-end TE1, but if Roddy White can start producing, he could become a mid-tier tight end again.

  Falcons | Tony Gonzalez not sure of status    Mon Nov 11, 01:44 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) is unsure of his status heading into Week 11, and he indicated that he'll likely have more tests this week to determine the severity of the ailment. 'I played on it,' he said. 'Wasn't able to go full speed, but we'll see how it goes the next day. Usually when you have injuries, you can get through it through in the game. Then the next day after it calms down and swells up a little bit, then that's when the trouble starts. So, we'll see how it goes. Tomorrow, I'm going to wake up, and hopefully it's not that bad.' Gonzalez finished with only three catches for 29 yards on five targets in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Gonzalez is one of the most durable players in NFL history. He hasn't missed a game since 2006 and has missed only two games in his 16-plus year NFL career.

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) suffered an injured toe on his left foot in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Gonzalez and the Falcons appear to be slowing down as the playoffs are out of reach this year. He is getting back towards to low TE1 value, which is where he appeared to be after a few weeks into this season before a brief resurgence. He'll have a chance to bounce back against the Bucs next week.

  Falcons | Tony Gonzalez open to trade    Tue Oct 29, 09:15 AM

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez said he is open to a trade if the team wanted to deal him. 'I love my guys on this team too much to go ask for a trade,' Gonzalez said. 'It would be something that would come from them where they said, 'Hey, it makes sense because we could get something good for you and send you to a team that's a contender.' So I understand the thought process behind that.'

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Falcons have a deal in place for Gonzalez before the trade deadline passes later today. Going back to Kansas City would make a lot of sense for the veteran as he's looking to make a run at a Super Bowl to finish out his career.

  Falcons | Still not trading Tony Gonzalez    Tue Oct 29, 09:04 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez has been jammed by two defenders, much like what is done to stop a gunner on special teams, in recent games against the New England Patriots and New York Jets. The coverage was flagged for a penalty in the second quarter in the game against the Jets, when CB David Harris was whistled for defensive holding against Gonzalez. 'I think it's illegal,' Gonzalez said. 'I do know they called it right when I got to 5 yards. So if I can get to 5 yards, then they're going to call it, it seems like, which is good news for me. Because that's no fun going out there and getting double-teamed like that.'

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez said he has not asked for a trade from the team, and does not plan on "jumping ship."

Footballguys view: Gonzalez knows this season isn't quite the swan song he wants it to be, but gets respect for hanging in there anyway. He's going to be a huge portion of the offense now that Julio Jones is out and Steven Jackson and Roddy White are still hurt.

The Atlanta Falcons are not going to trade TE Tony Gonzalez.
