Tony Gonzalez, former Kansas City Chief and current Atlanta Falcons tight end, says the 2012 season will be his last before he retires.

TG did a chat with ESPN.com and was asked about when he might hang 'em up.

"One year. I said that last year though, and the year before. But I really do believe this is it. First of all, this is the first time my wife came to me and said, ‘You're only going to play one more year, right?"

Yeah he's said it before. We'll see if it's true.

But look at his production -- 875 receiving yards and seven touchdowns last season. This is the "year of the tight end" but those numbers are still really, really good.

Good enough, in fact, that SB Nation Atlanta wrote that he would go down as one of the two or three best tight ends in team history, despite just a few seasons in Atlanta.

Here's the video to his chat.
