Former Chiefs TE and current Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez says he's "50-50" on returning to the NFL after 2010, according to Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com.

“It is year to year,” Gonzalez said after a Monday practice at the Falcons’ headquarters. “I could play another three or four years. I know I could ... There’s a lot of different factors. Yeah, I’d probably come back but you never know. I’m going to wait.”

If he does retire, then the deal the Chiefs got on the trade to Atlanta will look even better.

In 2008, TG criticized former Chiefs GM Carl Peterson for putting the price on him as a third round pick, which was too high he said. A year later and he was traded for a second round pick.

A second round pick and he plays only two more years? Not a bad deal for the Chiefs.
