More history for Tony Gonzalez?

In the aftermath of Sunday’s 34-0 victory against the New York Giants, veteran Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez said he still is 95 percent sure he’ll retire after the season.

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.
