Tony Gonzalez says he's done with football, and we believe him. Mostly.
"The temptation would be there, but I don't know what the gain would be," Gonzalez said, per Bob Glauber of Newsday. "I've always wanted a ring. That's been my main goal as a player over the last 15 years of my career. You're really trying to get that ultimate goal.
"But I'd be a mercenary to come in and get a Super Bowl ring, play with a team for, what, six, seven weeks? And even if I got the ring, it wouldn't be the same as going through the fight with the team from the beginning to the end. I don't think that will happen. The temptation will be there, but I'm 100 percent happy with my decision."
Gonzalez revealed that he's had "teams ask me to come back," but refused to name names before emphasizing that he's "happily retired."
It's no surprise that teams have reached out to Gonzalez coming off a season that saw him snag 83 passes for 859 yards and eight scores. He can still play and -- reading between the lines -- Gonzalez sounds like he'd still pick up the phone.
