"There is probably no chance of me coming back to play," Gonzalez said, according to CBS Sports.com. "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."
