We sort-of knew Tony Gonzalez wasn’t going to retire. After coming so close to going to the Super Bowl and with another great shot at a championship, it seems the future Hall-of-Famer will be with the Atlanta Falcons for another season. He tweeted his decision with the following posts:

“I’m happy to say that after speaking with my family, I’m coming back”

“The lure of being on such a great team and organization, along with

unbelievable fan support was too good to pass up.”

“We have a great shot to get to the Super Bowl, RISE UP ATLANTA!”

The Atlanta Falcons can breathe a sigh of relief–at least for now. They have much to¬†work on and improve if they plan on making it to another NFC Championship game.

But having Tony Gonzalez in your corner definitely helps.
