After catching pass No. 1,000 of his career during Week One, Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez will be honored by the team at its home opener Sunday.

Gonzalez, the first tight end in league history to reach the historic mark, will be recognized with a pregame ceremony with Falcons management, while a career highlight video will be shown on the Georgia Dome video board. The team will also mark down the price of Gonzalez's No. 88 jersey by 50 percent at its team store and Web site through Sunday, and it will feature a photo of the player on the cover of the team program.

The day of the game, Sept. 19, has also been declared "Tony Gonzalez Day" at the Dome.
