At Cal, Tony was a consensus All-American in 1996 along with being selected First-Team All-Pac-10. Tony was drafted by the Chiefs in 1997 as the 13th overall pick by the Kansas City Chiefs. He played there for 11 seasons before joining the Atlanta Falcons where he played another 5 years before retiring in 2013. He finished out his career with 1,325 receptions, 15,127 yards and 111 receiving touchdowns. Tony was also a 14-time Pro Bowler, 6-time First-team All-Pro, 4-time Second-team All-Pro, and a selection to the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team.

Congratulations Tony!
