KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) - Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez thought he was done playing football just a few weeks ago. Now, he says he's getting an ideal finish to his career with his 14th Pro Bowl.
Gonzalez said after practicing Friday that it's now up to players to put on an entertaining game to create a higher quality Pro Bowl.
Gonzalez says players have to balance the game's demands with the need to stay healthy for their own teams and fans.
Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten says he's learned a lot from Gonzalez over his nine selections to the all-star game. He says Gonzalez has changed the way tight ends are used around the league.
Gonzalez and Witten are the two most veteran Pro Bowlers set to play Sunday.
