Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez, who's in the last year of his contract, is enjoying what may be his last season in the NFL.
He just views himself as part of the offensive operation, he said.
"Really our approach, week-in and week-out is really kind of similar," Gonzalez said. "We have our chunk plays and our quick-hitting plays."
Then he just goes out and catches the passes.
Gonzalez moved into second place on the NFL's all-time receptions list with a two-yard catch in the second quarter, of Atlanta's Week 7 win over the Detroit Lions. This season, Gonzalez has pushed his total to 1,104 career receptions.
Last season, he became the first tight end in NFL history to record 1,000 receptions.
Gonzalez holds a number of NFL records at the tight end position, including most career receiving yards, most career receptions, most receptions in a single season, most touchdown catches, most 100-yard receiving games and most 1,000-yard seasons.
