Tony Gonzalez going through virtual camp
Tony Gonzalez has been absent from Atlanta Falcons training camp because of family obligations. For some players a coach may worry but there’s no need to worry with Tony. He’s entering his 17th season in the NFL so he knows what he needs to do be ready for the season. The Falcons have been keeping tabs on him though having him go through a virtual training camp.
The players know that Gonzalez works harder than most of them and don’t seem to question his absence.
Falcons tight ends coach Chris Scelfo has been talking almost nightly to Gonzalez.
“We’ve been in communications with him quite a bit with the technology that we have today, its state-of-the-art,” Scelfo said. “We’ll get him up to speed. We are using the iPad and we speak just about every night.” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Got to love technology. Gonzalez should be back with the Falcons this weekend though and should participate in the teams third preseason game.
