FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Tony Gonzalez is having a harder time saying goodbye to the NFL than he imagined.
As he prepares to host 40 family members and friends in Atlanta's season finale, Gonzalez sounds as if he's not entirely ready to walk away.
When the Falcons announced in March that he would return this year, the 13-time Pro Bowl tight end was ''100 percent certain'' he would retire after the season.
Now Gonzalez wonders if he could change his mind again, but ''right now'' he doesn't have any such plans. He adds that he's certain he ''won't be on an opening day for roster anybody.''
He says: ''This is it.''
