Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Falcons | Tony Gonzalez set to retire?

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez indicated after the NFC Championship Game loss against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Jan. 20, that he likely played in his final NFL game. "It's probably the last time I'm going to wear that uniform," Gonzalez said. "I didn't want to take it off, to tell you the truth. All good things come to an end and, like I said all season long, this is probably my last one. What an unbelievable ride."

Fantasy Tip: While Gonzalez indicated during the season he might be done, he played at a high level again this season, including eight grabs for 78 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers. While comments shortly after an emotional loss can usually be taken with a grain of salt, Gonzalez isn't getting any younger and will have ample opportunities after his football career ends. His departure would thin the fantasy pool at a position that is weak as it is. Good luck to No. 88 if this was it, as he had a great and Hall of Fame career.
