Tony Gonzalez: 'Probably no chance' of coming out of retirement

Thursday August 28th, 2014

Former NFL tight end and current CBS Sports analyst Tony Gonzalez says there is “probably no chance” he will come back to play in the NFL.

Gonzalez, a 14-time Pro Bowl selection, retired at the end of last season after 17 years in the NFL. He holds league records for receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns by a tight end.

"There is probably no chance of me coming back to play," Gonzalez said, according to CBS "I don't want to play anymore, to tell you the truth. I've had my fill."

Gonzalez, 38, said that multiple teams contacted him about the possibility of coming out of retirement.

Gonzalez was productive in his final season with the Atlanta Falcons, catching 83 passes for 859 yards and eight touchdowns.

"If it didn't happen up to this point," Gonzalez said, "it's not going to happen now."
