Former Falcons tight end, Tony Gonzalez, has a new role on a new series
The current Hall of Famer and former Atlanta Falcon, Tony Gonzalez, has found a new career as he will be playing the role of Desmond Porter on Spectrum Network’s “The Slow Exhale.” The new original series debuted on April 4th.
As the ESPN article states, Tony Gonzalez has finally landed a role as an actor after three years of auditioning but coming up empty-handed. It is great to finally see him land a role following his career as an analyst for Fox Sports.
Tony has had some short stints in a few series, but nothing of this magnitude and surely this is only the beginning of his career as an actor. He seemingly can do everything, from playing in the NFL to being a sports analyst to now being an actor, the sky is the limit for him.
Widely regarded as being “the greatest tight end in NFL history”, Tony Gonzalez played a total of 17 years in the NFL, being one of the most durable and consistent players ever.
In his 17 years in the league, he racked up a total of 1,325 catches for 15,127 yards and 111 touchdowns in 270 games. That is some of the most jaw-dropping stats in NFL history as he currently sits third all-time in catches and sixth all-time in yards, all while doing it at the tight end position.
There has never been a tight end who has been as consistent and durable as Tony Gonzalez and even after retirement he is continuing to thrive.
