“Upon his arrival at Qualcomm Stadium for Sunday’s game against the Chargers, Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez saw a Gameday magazine sitting at the foot of his locker room stall.
“I see the cover and it says, ‘Antonio Gates is the standard by which all tight ends are measured,’ ” said Gonzalez. “That gets me going a little bit and makes me want to go out there and play the best I can.”
As if Gonzalez needed any additional incentive.
Call it the tale of two tight ends, one that someday will be recounted in Canton on the steps of the Hall of Fame.”
