When you’re a 12-time pro-bowler, hold team records for receptions, receiving yards, and touchdown catches for a former team, it’s understandable that you would become emotional when returning to your previous home stadium.
Atlanta Falcons tight end, Tony Gonzalez will be visiting Arrowhead Stadium as an opposing player for the first time since he left the Chiefs in 2008.
Gonzalez told FoxNews.com, “It’s going to be a little weird being in a different locker room and coming out of that tunnel when we first come in. It’s going to be a little weird, but I’m looking forward to it.”
The Falcons and Gonzalez are excited to begin their season. After being defeated by the New York Giants in the opening round of the NFC playoffs last winter, Gonzalez feels this year, they have as great of a chance as anyone to win the Super Bowl.
“I realize we have an opportunity to go to the playoffs, win a playoff game, and that’s what I want,” he told FoxNews.com. ”I’ve been playing my whole career for a chance to go to the Super Bowl and I feel we have as good a chance as anybody.”
You can only hope good things continue to head Tony Gonzalez’s way after all of his outstanding accomplishments. Assuming that his jersey heads into the Hall of Fame once he retires, a Super Bowl is all Gonzalez needs to complete a perfect NFL career.
