ATLANTA (AP) — Tony Gonzalez has one more game to play after all.

Gonzalez, the Falcons' tight end who is retiring, was named to his 14th Pro Bowl on Tuesday as a replacement for San Francisco's Vernon Davis. The game is Sunday in Honolulu.

It is the fourth Pro Bowl selection for Gonzalez in five seasons with Atlanta. He had 79 receptions for 803 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013, adding to the best career totals for any tight end in NFL history.

The Falcons had a disappointing 4-12 finish after the 37-year-old Gonzalez postponed his retirement for one year. He trails only Jerry Rice in career catches and ranks fifth in yards receiving and sixth in touchdown catches.

He finished his career with catches in 210 consecutive games, second all-time behind Rice's 274.
