Gonzalez has been saying that for months. When pressed on it Sunday, he stood firm, but said he probably would take some time after the season before making a final decision.
But it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Gonzalez reverses course and decides to play another season. After all, he still is producing at a very high level.
With two regular-season games, Gonzalez, 36, needs 120 receiving yards to reach 1,000 for the season. He also needs two touchdowns to reach 10 on the season. According to ESPN Stat & Information, no player in NFL history has had 1,000 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns in a season at 36 or older.
