Despite getting less production out of the tight end position than the Falcons have averaged over the last three seasons, Tony Gonzalez is comfortable with the role the tight end plays in new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter's system.
In Jacksonville, tight end Marcedes Lewis averaged 41.4 catches over the last five seasons with David Garrard and Blaine Gabbert operating the offense. Lewis peaked in 2010 when he caught 58 passes and 10 touchdowns to earn a trip to the Pro Bowl.
In former coordinator Mike Mularkey's system, Gonzalez averaged 77.6 catches over the past three seasons and has made two trips to the Pro Bowl.
"I don't see it changing too much from what it's been around here," Gonzalez said. "It's somewhat the same plays. Of course, he brought his great plays that he liked down there."
