Tony Gonzalez turned down a couple offers to return to football this year

Tony Gonzalez was once the most touted tight end in the NFL, but after retiring last year, the studio analyst for CBS said he is done with the NFL.

He admitted to being approached by two NFL teams that he would not identify. He added that, “I’m done, and I’m enjoying what I’m doing. It’s been a dream come true for me to make this transition.” This according to Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star.

When Tony was asked wither he would consider returning if a Super Bowl contender was knocking on his door, he replied with this,

“If I could be like the third-string tight end, and I don’t have to get in the game, and I can get a ring, yeah. If there was a team out there in need of a tight end, they better go somewhere else because I’m about 230 pounds now and I’m afraid I’d get crushed out there on the football field.” added Gonzalez, who played at 251 pounds.

So here is my question, if you were a head coach and made it to the Suoer Bowl, would you sign Tony as a bench player to win a ring?
