Because of this fact, some have wondered whether or not Gonzalez would consider not retiring (again), if the Falcons season continues this downward trend. Gonzalez was adamant in stating that no matter what, this is the end of the road for him.
"I’ve chased it long enough and I’ve tried long enough. I think I’ve chased it three or four years longer than I thought I would. This is it."
After starting the season out slowly, Gonzalez had his best game last week, nabbing 12 catches for 149 yards and two touchdowns.
Gonzalez is still one of the best tight ends in the game, and the 37 year old and leads all tight ends in every statistical category (catches, yards, touchdowns) and is second all time in receptions behind Jerry Rice.
Unfortunately for the fans, those stating that Gonzalez could balk at retirement once again, as of now, it doesn't appear that will be the case.
