Falcons not trying to sway Tony Gonzalez out of retirement


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff told the media at the NFL Combine Friday that he nor anyone from the team is trying to talk tight end Tony Gonzalez out of retirement. Gonzalez is walking away from the game after 18 seasons and recently accepted a job with CBS on The NFL Today

Tony Gonzalez accepts job with The NFL Today


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Future Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez has joined the crew of The NFL Today, CBS announced Tuesday. 

It certainly suggests Gonzalez doesn't have designs on playing football this season. Gonzalez had hinted a number of times this offseason that he'd come back for the right situation, potentially in the middle of the season, but signing up with CBS could put the brakes on that.

The Falcons own Gonzalez's rights for one more season. 


Falcons GM not counting on Tony Gonzalez


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) Tight end Tony Gonzalez might be leaving the door open on a potential return next season despite a planned retirement, but Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff isn't counting on it, reports ESPN.

"I believe Tony Gonzalez has retired and he'll have a fantastic career in the media business," Dimitroff said.


Tony Gonzalez tells Gottlieb he'd come back if Falcons were perfect


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) Tight end Tony Gonzalez told CBS Sports Radio's Doug Gottlieb that he'd be open to returning to the Falcons in 2014 -- if the team started the year 10-0. The future Hall of Famer told Gottlieb that he's considering broadcast opportunities. 

This is the second time this week he's hinted at a return if the perfect situation came up. Such a situation seems to include the team signing him being ticketed for the postseason (such as getting off to a hot start). It remains to be seen if Gonzalez will truly retire. 


Tony Gonzalez doesn't sound sure about retirement


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez repeatedly insisted his retirement decision was final, but in an interview with ESPN The Magazine the future Hall of Famer doesn't sound so sure. At dinner with quarterback Matt Ryan one night last season, Gonzalez said, "Maybe, if the team is hot in November, 9-2 or something, I could come back for the last two months."

That raises the possibility we'll be dealing with Gonzalez speculation throughout 2014.


How do Falcons replace Tony Gonzalez?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff is facing a gaping roster hole due to Tony Gonzalez's retirement.

"I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Nobody replaces Tony Gonzalez,’’ Dimitroff said, per ESPN.com. "We’ve been very fortunate to have him on our team the last five years.

"As we continue to build this football team, we’re going to have to make sure that we have the right mix and the right amount of tight ends with blocking ability and tight ends with pass-catching ability. Every year, you’re going to find a unique mix of that talent, both on the free-agent side and the college side. And it’s no different this year.’’

The Falcons' remaining tight ends are  Levine Toilolo and Chase Coffman. Jermichael Finley, Dustin Keller and Dennis Pitta are among the tight ends scheduled to be unrestricted free agents.


Tony Gonzalez 'totally at peace' with retirement


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2014) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez said before the Pro Bowl that he's "totally at peace" with his decision to retire after 17 seasons and that he's looking forward to life after football. Gonzalez, who's making his 14th Pro Bowl appearance, ranks second in NFL history with 1,325 catches, fifth with 15,127 receiving yards and sixth with 111 touchdown catches.

Tony Gonzalez happy to play one last game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) Retiring Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez expected his regular season finale to be his career swan song. That makes him appreciate his participation in the Pro Bowl even more.

"To be able to come out here the last game, it's great," he told the Charlotte Observer. "I wasn't anticipating this. I really thought the last game of the season we played against the Carolina Panthers, I thought that was going to be the last time I put on the helmet and shoulder pads. ... I'm going to have a good time."

Gonzalez is going out with a flourish. He was his usual productive self in 2013 with 83 catches for 859 yards and eight touchdowns despite increased defensive attention due to injuries that wiped out most of the season of Julio Jones and hampered fellow wideout Roddy White all year.


Tony Gonzalez ends career, heads into retirement


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez ended his Hall of Fame career Sunday in Week 17 against Carolina with a quiet game.

Gonzalez, who came into Sunday with a touchdown in four games in a row, had four catches for 56 yards on four targets.

He said 2013, his 17th season in the NFL, will be his last, but he showed this year he can still play at a high level, even at 37. If this is his last season, he will be a sure-fire Hall of Famer the first year he is eligible.


Tony Gonzalez playing through toe injury again in Week 17


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is active for Week 17 against the Panthers, in what might be the final game of his career. Gonzalez will play through a toe injury Sunday, as he has done for the last few weeks. 

Tony Gonzalez probable Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is probable Week 17.

Gonzalez is listed with a toe injury. He's been dealing with the issue for weeks, but continues to play through it. Gonzalez is expected to retire at the end of the season, so this will be the last game of his career.


Tony Gonzalez ready for final NFL game


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/26/2013) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez heads into Week 17 against Carolina possibly playing his final NFL game. He plans to retire after this season, so this could be his last game after a 17-year Hall of Fame career.

We expect Gonzalez to go out on top. He doesn't look like a future retiree with a touchdown in four consecutive games, and he's scored double digits in Fantasy points in three of those four. He also scored against the Panthers in Week 9 at Carolina with six catches for 81 yards on seven targets.

The Panthers have allowed nine touchdowns to tight ends this season, and seven have reached double digits in Fantasy points. We expect Gonzalez to add to that total in his final game, and he remains a must-start Fantasy option in all leagues.

We'll see if he sticks to his word to retire, so stay tuned this offseason. But if this is his final game then he gave us great memories as one of the best Fantasy tight ends of all time.


Tony Gonzalez extends scoring streak to four


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez caught eight balls for 63 yards and a touchdown in the loss at San Francisco, the fourth straight game in which he's scored. Gonzalez hauled in a 2-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter and ranks second in NFL history with 85 red-zone scoring grabs.

Gonzalez drew 11 targets, four behind team leader Roddy White. Gonzalez is up to eight touchdowns entering Week 17 vs. Carolina.

Toe still limiting Tony Gonzalez


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez (toe) was limited in practice yet again Friday, as the team continues to prepare for Week 16 against the 49ers. Gonzalez has played through the injury in recent weeks, and his status for Monday's game will be determined after Saturday's practice.

Tony Gonzalez aiming to extend scoring streak


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is closing his glorious career in style. The 37-year-old has caught a touchdown pass in three straight games entering Week 16 at San Francisco.

Last week vs. Washington, Gonzalez became the fifth player in NFL history to surpass 15,000 receiving yards. He has 110 career touchdown grabs.

Tied for fifth in Fantasy points among tight ends, Gonzalez has a tough matchup on paper Monday night. The 49ers give up the 7th-fewest Fantasy points (7.4 per game) to tight ends. But they've been strangely vulnerable the past two weeks, yielding 11 catches for 165 yards and two scores to Seahawks and Buccaneers tight ends. Gonzalez, of course, is better than those tight ends.

Gonzalez owns a poor track record against San Francisco. In six career meetings, he's averaged 4.2 catches for 37.7 yards with one touchdown.

Regardless, Gonzalez seems determined to make the most of his final two games. Look for him to keep defying age and put up solid TE1 numbers. He's a top-6 play Monday night.


Tony Gonzalez has best game in weeks


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Not only did Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez keep his scoring streak alive Week 15 against the Redskins, but he was a factor even when he wasn't scoring, leading the Falcons with six catches and 62 receiving yards and tying for the team lead with seven targets. It was just the fifth time this season that he eclipsed 60 yards.

Though he had decent yardage, only one of his catches was outside the red zone, and none came after the Falcons took the lead for good midway through the third quarter.

Gonzalez will try to find the end zone again Week 16 at San Francisco.


Tony Gonzalez again able to play


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez, who was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, is active for Week 15 against the Redskins. Gonzalez was limited in practice leading up to the game. He has been contending with a toe injury since Week 10 but has yet to miss a game.

Tony Gonzalez limited Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Gonzalez has been dealing with a toe injury the past couple weeks. Despite not practicing much during the week, Gonzalez has been able to play each week.


Can Tony Gonzalez make it three in a row?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2013) Though Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez's yardage has been lacking in recent weeks, he has kept his Fantasy owners satisfied with a touchdown in his last two games. The matchup is right for him to keep the streak alive Week 15 against Washington.

The Redskins rank 27th against the pass, allowing 256.7 yards per game, and have been particularly vulnerable against tight ends, allowing the sixth-most Fantasy points to them. They didn't have a tight end put up big numbers against them last week vs. the Chiefs, but they gave up five catches for 61 yards and a touchdown to the Giants' Brandon Myers in Week 13 and four catches for 70 yards and a touchdown to the 49ers' Vernon Davis in Week 12.

Obviously, trying to predict which targets will score in a given week is a fool's errand, but with the Redskins in a state of disarray and coming off a 45-10 loss against the Chiefs in which they appeared positively disintrested, the Falcons passing game figures to have a big day, making Gonzalez a good bet for better numbers even if he's held out of the end zone.


Tony Gonzalez limited in practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez was limited in Wednesday's practice by a toe injury, reports the team's website. Gonzalez has been dealing with the injury since Week 10 but has not missed a game. He's scored in two straight games entering Week 15 vs. the Redskins.

Tony Gonzalez finds the end zone again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) On first-and-goal from the 2-yard line midway through the first quarter Week 14 at Green Bay, Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez broke free at the line of scrimmage for a wide-open touchdown.

Gonzalez's production again was lacking -- he caught three passes for 25 yards, giving him an average of 40.4 yards in his last five games -- but with two touchdowns in as many games, he remains one of quarterback Matt Ryan's preferred targets in the red zone.

Gonzalez has been inconsistent from week to week this season, going for more than 60 yards in only four of his 13 games. He'll look to make it five with a favorable matchup Week 15 against the Redskins.
