Re: Tony Gonzales Released

Sounds like a bit of a falling out

Tony Gonzalez forced Falcons' hand by not filing retirement papers; if not cut by Wednesday, substantial bonus due Gonzalez forced Falcons’ hand by not filing retirement papers | ProFootballTalk


I wonder if he is leaving the possibility to come back as the falcons do not own his rights now

definitely
I am not saying the guy has a bad work ethic, not at all, actually, but he did negotiate out of OTA's and part of training camp the past two years. Seems like he wants to play, but not practice.
With his skill set and age, I don't have a problem with that. He'll sign with a contender mid-season

Re: Tony Gonzales Released

Maybe bsck with the Chiefs.
They need a TE, as do the Packers if Finley walks.

I have nothing but respect for the man.

Re: Tony Gonzales Released

Unless he just wants to be able to sign a one day contract with Kansas City so that he can retire a Chief. But then this doesn't sound like it's as simple as that. So who knows. He's certainly not someone I would fear at this point, so wherever he goes really doesn't matter to me. If he in fact plays again.

he never officially retired, so he would have received a roster bonus

I know he didn't retire. What made you think I didn't know that?

I'm saying rather than just retire, perhaps he is forcing the Falcons to release him so that he can sign with the Chiefs for a day and retire as a Chief. But you'd think that would be a simple request he could make, so given the fact that they're making it out to be kind of an ugly situation, it makes you wonder if he isn't really wanting to play elsewhere. It's not a big deal to me either way.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

From the outside looking in it looks like a falling out of some kind.
You think he comes back elsewhere
