Joaquin Antonio Gonzalez (born September 7, 1979 in Miami, Florida) is a former professional National Football League offensive tackle for the Cleveland Browns and the Indianapolis Colts.

He is fondly remembered for reminding his team to dominate at all times during the 2001 season, and only rarely did they not do it.[1]
