ATLANTA—Yesterday, Tony Gonzalez announced that he would be returning to the Atlanta Falcons in 2013 to make one more run at almost winning it all. The future Hall of Famer, considered by many to be the best tight end to ever play the game, can’t wait to win exactly one more playoff game.

Said the 37-year-old, “I know expectations are high, but I really think I can provide the boost needed to help the team fall short again.”

In his 16 seasons, Tony Gonzalez has amassed 1,242 receptions, second only to Jerry Rice, and 1 playoff win, tied with Matt Ryan.
