NFL News: Signing Tony Gonzalez Is Falcons’ Top Priority

USATSI_7695381_154224518_lowresThe Atlanta Falcons are coming off another incredible season in which franchise quarterback Matt Ryan was able to lead the team to an NFC South division title, the number one seed in the NFC and a first-round bye in the NFL playoffs.

As a result of the team’s success in the regular season, the Falcons were considered to be a legitimate Super Bowl title contender heading into the postseason. Although a legit contender, there was still a lot of doubt surrounding the team’s chances of advancing in the playoffs and for good reason with the Seattle Seahawks giving the top seeded Falcons a run for their money in Divisional Round.

Fortunately, the Falcons were able to advance to the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers, but fell apart in the second half for a second consecutive week and let Colin Kaepernick’s 49ers get the best of them.

With the team heading into the off-season only one game shy of the Super Bowl, the Falcons’ front office want to keep the current squad relatively intact moving forward. One player that the team wants to bring back for at least one year is the Falcons’ receptions leader in 2013 in tight end Tony Gonzalez.

Gonzalez has indicated that he’s leaning towards retirement and 95% sure he’ll his career is over, but the Falcons won’t let him walk away from the game without another hard push. The Falcons have made signing Gonzalez their highest priority moving forward according to Ed Werner of ESPN.com:

The Atlanta Falcons will engage quarterback Matt Ryan in negotiations to extend his contract this offseason, but sources said Tuesday that persuading tight end Tony Gonzalez to return has become a higher priority at the moment.

Although extending Ryan is obviously a priority, Gonzalez’ return to Atlanta for next season would greatly improve the team’s chances of having another successful year and an opportunity to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Gonzalez caught a team-leading 93 passes in 2012 and continued to play at a Pro Bowl level.
