FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez thanked the fans today on his Twitter.com account.
He wrote, “Hey Guys, I wanted to thank you all for your support this season. Without you we never would have made it that far. Thanks!!”
After the game, Gonzalez didn’t sound like a player headed for retirement. After getting hurt, he scrambled to get well and back into the game.
He has one-year left on his contract and said was still a “possibility” that he might. He definitely waiting to see if they have to play an 18-game schedule and that will certainly factor into his decision.
Gonzalez, who’s headed to his 11th Pro Bowl, caught 70 passes this season.
