Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez is 95% sure he’s retiring. Here are recent quotes from camp:
“I’ve had a great run. I don’t want to be one of those players toward the end of their careers – and nothing against guys that have done it like that in the past – but I want to make sure that I’m at the top of my game when I do go out.”
“Sometimes you have to call it quits, and I’m just one of those type of guys that I can’t handle being average at this sport because I’ve been at the top for a while. I hope that’s not coming off as cocky, but it’s just the way I operate. I don’t want to come out there and be somewhat of a role player. I don’t want to be a distraction to myself, first and foremost. I don’t want to play games in my head. I’m sticking to it, and we’ll know at the end of the season. We have a long time before that day even comes.”
