Falcons | Tony Gonzalez explains decision to return
Wed, 19 Jun 2013 12:08:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez said he decided to return because his son told him he owed it to himself to take another shot at winning a championship. "But really it came down to what my little 12-year-old boy said. He said, 'You know what, Dad, you got a great football team, you guys got a chance to go get a Super Bowl,' and he knows that's the only reason I'm playing at this point. So he said go back and try it one more time. So that's why I'm here, that's why I'm going to be coming back," he said. Gonzalez said he was leaning toward retirement because he wanted to spend more time with his family.

Gonzalez was still playing at a high level last season and will be playing in the same offense this season with the same skill position players. Gonzalez should be a strong No. 1 fantasy tight end this season.
