FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Tony Gonzalez is returning to the Falcons for the 2013 season.
Gonzalez, who led the Falcons with 93 catches last season, said on his Twitter feed Tuesday “I’m coming back.”
Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said the new contract for Gonzalez “is not done but it will be done quickly.”
Gonzalez, who said during the season he was 95-percent sure he would retire after the 2012 season, says he made the decision to play after talking with his family.
The 37-year-old Gonzalez had 93 catches for 930 yards and eight touchdowns last season.
