According to ESPN, Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff remains hopeful that Gonzalez will suit up for one more season.
Dimitroff said of the situation: “Tony has done so much for us on and off the field, and I don’t believe, not stating that he would be lying to anyone, but I don’t believe the 95 percent,” Dimitroff said on “Pro Football Talk” on NBC Sports Network.”I want to believe it’s a lot closer to 50-50, to be honest with you, and we’ve had discussions.”
Gonzalez played a pivotal in the 2012-13 season, snagging a team high 93 catches while accounting for eight touchdowns. Tony’s biggest moment of season came late in the game against Seattle in the divisional round when he hauled in a pass from Matt Ryan to put the Falcons in field goal range, eventually leading to a victory.
I truly hope the sure fire future hall of famer returns to the ATL for one more season. I also hope the team can send him out on top, where he belongs.
