Tony Gonzalez didn’t make it to the Super Bowl.
And the former Cal star didn’t reverse his field on plans to retire after a 16-year-old NFL career.
After Gonzalez and the Falcons lost 28-24 to the 49ers in Sunday’s NFL title game, Gonzalez said the game was “probably” his last.
If he follows through on that plan, he will retire as the greatest tight end in pro football history.
The numbers are undeniable: 1,242 receptions (427 more than any tight end in history), 14,268 yards (4,208 more) and 103 touchdowns (20 more).
