Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is having a 1,000th Catch Twitter Contest with the winner earning the autographed game glove and a trip for two to Atlanta to re-enact the catch with Gonzalez.
Gonzalez needs just one catch for his 1,000 career receptions. That will likely happen early in the Falcons’ season-opener at Pittsburgh on Sept. 12.
