With Gonzalez watching, Falcons add at his position

With Tony Gonzalez getting the week off from Falcons minicamp, they needed some more help at tight end.

So they added another, signing former Jaguars, 49ers and Colts tight end Colin Cloherty, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Cloherty might be a spare part for camp, but the extra work for fourth-rounder Levine Toilolo this week will be worth monitoring.

The 6-foot-8 Stanford product could be a contributor for the Falcons in the red zone in the future beyond Gonzalez, or maybe sooner.
