For the second consecutive day, the Atlanta Falcons signed a big name free agent. Yesterday, it was star TE Tony Gonzalez. Gonzalez was originally expected to retire this offseason before announcing earlier this week that he was returning. He has spent the last three seasons in Atlanta.
I'm not very surprised that he's retuning, but I am surprised that he's returning for multiple years. This kinda stuff seems to happen a lot in sports. A guy can't decide whether or not to retire, then ends up coming back for what seems like 5 years. This is also somewhat relieving as now we don't have to deal with this drama next year.
