Sure fire Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez always left open a 5% chance he would return in 2013. Anytime Gonzalez was asked about his impending retirement, his answer was he was always 95% sure his career was finished.
Falcons general manager Thomas dimitroff has been hammering away at Gonzalez trying to get him to return for one more season, and thinks it’s 50-50 Gonzalez will come back.
ESPN reporter Ed Werder quoting a source close to the Falcons and Gonzalez, says “if the circumstances are right, Tony Gonzalez may return.”
