Tony Gonzalez Does Not Want to Be a Preseason Favorite

BR StudiosFeatured Columnist IVJune 26, 2016

Tony Gonzalez will go down as one of the all-time great tight ends in NFL history. He's got the record for most touchdown receptions (107) and total reception yards (14,268) by a tight end. 

Durable? The future Hall of Famer has missed only one game in his 16 years in the NFL. Throughout the 2012 season, everyone, including Gonzalez, thought he'd retire. 

But the bitter playoff loss and the lure of coming back to a championship contender brought Gonzalez back. As a matter of fact, he signed a two-year, $14 million contract. Yes, two years.

Check out the video above as Gonzalez talks about his growth as a tight end and the upcoming 2013 season.
