Veteran Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is excited about the addition of running back Steven Jackson.

Appearing on NFL Network's "NFL AM,"  Gonzalez called Jackson a "beast."

"Obviously, we're led by Matt Ryan," Gonzalez said. "With him pulling the trigger, with Roddy (White), Julio (Jones), myself, we're going to try and soften up that defense a lot where they got to stand back and play off us a little bit. That is going to make big holes for a guy like Steven Jackson, and we should hopefully go out there and be the perfect offense.

"That's what we strive to be is the perfect type of offense where it's pick your poison; who are you going to stop? With Steven Jackson back there in the backfield, it just makes us that much tougher to defend."
