Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez Not Sure If He’ll Play After This Season


Tony Gonzalez is not 100 percent sure that he’ll come back after the 2010 season, and told Fox Sports that there are plenty of factors that will go into his decision for coming back in 2011.

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez said he is split “50-50” on whether he will retire after the 2010 season. “It is year to year,” Gonzalez told Fox Sports on Monday. “I could play another three or four years. I know I could … There’s a lot of different factors. Yeah, I’d probably come back but you never know. I’m going to wait.”

Gonzalez, 34, is a 10-time Pro Bowl who missed an all-star appearance last year for the first time since 1998. He had 83 catches for 867 yards and six TDs in his first season with the Falcons. His first catch in the regular season will give him 1,000 for his career. Gonzalez told Fox Sports that winning a Super Bowl is the is single motivator for him at this point.

“It’s not a secret,” he said. “People have known it. It’s the reason I got out of Kansas City (last offseason) and the reason I’m here. I don’t want to just go to the playoffs. I want to win the whole thing. I think we’ve got a good chance here.”
