You can forget about TE Tony Gonzalez making a comeback

Although Tony Gonzalez @TonyGonzalez88 previously said he is retired, he left the door open a smidgen by saying that he could possibly return late in the 2014 season if the Falcons were a championship-contending team. That door was shut and locked today.
Gonzalez has signed on to be part of CBS' "The NFL Today" Sunday morning pregame show. He and Boomer Esiason will replace Shannon Sharpe and Dan Marino. As such, Gonzalez told SportsBusiness Daily that he won't be back as a player.

Fantasy Analysis:

CBS probably took measures to make sure that if Gonzalez joined its team, he would be contractually unable to jump back to the NFL. I think Gonzalez will make a good analyst, although I will miss Sharpe's deep, garbled tones. Expect to see Gonzalez, the NFL's all-time leader in catches, yards, and touchdowns among tight ends, receive a bust in Canton in five years.
The Falcons top tight end right now is Levine Toilolo. He is off the re-draft radar at the moment.
