Rumor: Packers Safety Burnett responsible for Tony Gonzalez's retirement

As you probably already know, Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez, a definite future Hall-of-Famer, retired earlier this offseason for what many assume to just be aging. But apparently, according to him, that's not actually the case. In his view, he's leaving the league because his teammates, during last season's Falcons-Packers game at Lambeau, didn't stand up for him while he was taunted by Green Bay Safety Morgan Burnett, who has since denied the rumors. 

So yea, what we're learning here is this: whether this story is true or not, Tony Gonzalez is an emotional wimp. This is pro football, not a high school clique, so if he really can't stand just being taunted then I guess it is in fact his time to leave.
