Football nerds: I hope you didn’t let the trade keep you from taking Tony Gonzalez as one of the top tight ends in your fantasy draft this year. The uni may have changed, but Gonzo is his same old reliable self, converting on third downs and creating space for himself in the end zone.

Non-football nerds: Tony Gonzalez is a very large man who competes with other very large men for possession of a semi-spherical orb known as a “foot ball.” He does this much better than most of the other very large men.

Everyone: You may have heard about how Gonzalez attributes much of his recent success on the field to his nearly-vegan diet, but now the All-Pro tight end-and his wife, October-are taking their compassion for animals to a whole new level. Check out their “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” ad for peta2 below:

Tony’s just the latest pro athlete to speak out against cruelty to animals-Ron Artest of the Los Angeles Lakers, NBA legend Dennis Rodman, world welterweight champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley, and others have all teamed up with peta2 to speak out against the cruel fur industry, the inhumane underground world of dogfighting, or the importance of spaying and neutering your companion animals.

You can hear Tony tell you more about how his nearly-vegan diet helps him on and off the football field in our exclusive video Q&A with him and October!


So who’s the next athlete you want to see star in a peta2 ad? Tell me in the comments.

    If he’s “nearly vegan”, is there anything Peta2 can say to him to help become fully vegan?

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
