Falcons 2013 Free Agency: Tony Gonzalez Set to Return for 17th Season

Despite numerous claims that Tony Gonzalez was 95 percent certain to retire following the 2012 NFL season, the 5 percent has apparently come to fruition.

Tony Gonzalez appears likely to return to Atlanta for his fifth season with the organization and 17th overall in the NFL. Though certain stipulations will need to be set in place (money, reduced training camp), the Falcons will be able to move forward keeping all of their dynamic offensive weapons intact for the 2013 season.
