There are two games left in the regular season, which means that there are two games left in Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez’s career.
Unless, of course, he decides to reverse course and come back for the 2014 season. Gonzalez was asked about that possibility during a conference call with 49ers media on Thursday and he said that his mind remains set on calling it a career after Week 17.
“I absolutely could,” Gonzalez said, via Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group. “But it’s the end of the road for me. I put everything out there and I’m completely satisfied. I don’t have any regrets and I look forward to what’s next.”
The only caveat Gonzalez offered was that he would consider another season if there were a team in Los Angeles, where his 12-year-old son lives. Of course, there isn’t a team in Los Angeles and there’s unlikely to be one by the start of the 2014 season so we’ll be saying goodbye to Gonzalez just before we say goodbye to 2013.
