On Sunday, one of the NFL’s top players in history will suit up for his final game. As a tribute to Tony Gonzalez’s career, the Atlanta Falcons will present the tight end with a helmet that represents the two teams for which he played.

One half of the helmet is red, representative of his tenure with the Chiefs. Gonzalez spent his first 12 years in the league with Kansas City, where he recorded 76 touchdowns and four seasons with over 1,000 yards receiving.

The other half of the helmet is black to signify the past five seasons with the Falcons. During his time with Atlanta, Gonzalez has recorded over 400 receptions and 35 touchdowns.

Gonzales will retire with the second-most receptions in NFL history, trailing only Jerry Rice.

The Falcons host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Dec. 29 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
