Tony Gonzalez said there is "probably no chance of me coming back to play."
"I don't even want to play anymore. ... If it didn't happen up to this point, it's not gonna happen now," Gonzalez said. Predictably, the future Hall of Famer did say multiple teams contacted him this offseason. He caught 83 passes for 859 yards with eight touchdowns at age 37 last year, finishing as fantasy's No. 4 tight end. Thu, Aug 28, 2014 12:40:00 PM

Although he admits there will be "temptation" to return, Tony Gonzalez insists he's retired.

Gonzalez acknowledges he's already been contacted about a comeback. "The temptation would be there, but I don't know what the gain would be,'' Gonzalez said. "I've always wanted a ring. ... But I'd be a mercenary to come in and get a Super Bowl ring, play with a team for, what, six, seven weeks?" Settling in nicely to his new role as a pundit for CBS Sports, Gonzalez has predicted the Broncos will go undefeated this season.

Falcons released TE Tony Gonzalez.

Gonzalez apparently never filed his retirement papers. In theory, it's just a formality, but Gonzalez would now be free to sign with any team if he got the comeback itch. Gonzalez has insisted he's committed to his new job at CBS' NFL Today, but there won't be any bureaucratic hoops to jump through if he decides he still has some football left in him.

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff answered "No" when asked at the Combine if he'll recruit Tony Gonzalez to come out of retirement.

Perhaps Dimitroff will keep an open mind should Gonzalez approach him during the season or closer to training camp, but he won't be aggressive in attempting to lure the 38-year-old back out of retirement. Gonzalez has already accepted a job working as a game-day analyst for CBS' NFL Today. Deep Dynasty owners can hang onto Gonzo for a little while longer, but it probably won't pay off.

Tony Gonzalez insists that he'll remain retired after accepting a position with CBS' NFL Today.

Gonzalez had previously left the door open for a 2014 return, but now says he'll see things through with his television job. Gonzalez also said he doesn't plan to hold back as an analyst. "I’ll address (issues) as I see fit," Gonzalez said. "I have no problem talking about (things). I think I’ll be able to give an interesting perspective." Gonzalez's "retirement" has taken on an air of "believe it when you see it," but we'd ultimately be surprised if he took the field in 2014.

Tony Gonzalez has been hired by CBS as an NFL Today studio analyst.

Gonzalez is replacing Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe, who will no longer be part of the network. There had been recent rumblings that Gonzalez would return to the field in 2014 for a "stretch run with a contender," but he'll focus on his new gig for the time being. The Falcons hold Gonzalez's rights for the upcoming season but have stated all along they don't expect him to play.
Tue, Feb 18, 2014 12:28:00 PM

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff says he is not counting on Tony Gonzalez playing in 2014.

Gonzalez recently suggested he'd be open to a late-season return on a contender. "I believe Tony Gonzalez has retired and he’ll have a fantastic career in the media business," Dimitroff said. Dimitroff didn't rule out the possibility of welcoming back Gonzalez at a later time. The Falcons signed Gonzo to a two-year, $14 million deal last March and control his rights for 2014.

Tony Gonzalez told ESPN's Doug Gottlieb on Friday that he would be open to returning to the Falcons if they open the season with a 10-0 record.

Gonzalez was obviously joking, but he's clearly not given up completely on the idea of playing ball in 2014, hinting at a return twice over the last week. Perhaps by the time training camp starts, the "itch" to play will resurface and Gonzalez will turn in another full year. If Gonzo was dropped in Dynasty leagues, go grab him. He's shaping up as 50:50 to truly retire this offseason.
Fri, Feb 7, 2014 03:49:00 PM

Appearing on ESPN's NFL Live Thursday, retired TE Tony Gonzalez left open the possibility that he'd sign with a contender for the "stretch run" in 2014.

Gonzalez insisted last month that he was "at peace" with his decision to retire, but the fact that he would even entertain such a hypothetical is proof that he's still not quite ready to call it a day for good. Gonzalez looked like a player who could play another two or three seasons in 2013, so this definitely won't be the last you hear about possible return scenarios. We've got a new Favre on our hands.

Tony Gonzalez reiterated at the Pro Bowl that he will not be talked out of retirement.

Gonzalez, who turns 38 in February, told the Pro Bowl's pre-game show that he's "at peace" with his decision. Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff got Gonzo to renege on his 2013 retirement pledge, but that doesn't appear in the cards this year. Gonzalez will finish his career ranked second behind only Jerry Rice in receptions (1,325). Only Rice, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Cris Carter, and Marvin Harrison have more career touchdown catches (111).

Tony Gonzalez caught four passes for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Panthers.

And with that, Gonzalez's revolutionary Hall of Fame career is over. The man who changed the tight end position has been adamant in his intent to retire, despite the fact that he continues to play at a Pro Bowl level. At age 37 and in his 17th NFL season, T-Gonz totaled 83 catches for 859 yards and eight touchdowns. Only Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis and Julius Thomas had more fantasy points among tight ends.

Tony Gonzalez (toe) is probable for Week 17.

It's expected to be his last game as an NFL player.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 02:25:00 PM

Tony Gonzalez (toe) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Gonzalez is fully expected to suit up for what will be his final NFL game Sunday. The ageless veteran enters Week 17 with 79 catches for 803 yards and eight touchdowns.
Thu, Dec 26, 2013 04:50:00 PM

Tony Gonzalez caught eight passes for 63 yards and one touchdown in Atlanta's Week 16 loss to the 49ers on Monday night.

Gonzalez was targeted on 11 of Matt Ryan's 48 passes, finishing second on the team to Roddy White (15). The 37-year-old did his usual damage over the middle near the first-down marker and in the red zone. Gonzalez's touchdown came on a broken play where Ryan rolled out and found his tight end in the middle of the end zone for a two-yard score. Gonzalez will end his career next week against the Panthers. He's been a mid-range TE1 all year long.
Tue, Dec 24, 2013 12:41:00 AM

Tony Gonzalez (toe) is active for Monday night's Week 16 game at San Francisco.

Gonzalez was never in real danger of missing the game, even though he's been limited in practice for the better part of a month. The 37-year-old will play the final road game of his career back home in California. It's a brutal matchup for Gonzalez, however, and he's nothing more than a low-end TE1.
