Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez, fresh off of being enticed to return to football despite saying he was 95% sure he'd retire, will actually retire after the 2013 season. How sure? 100% sure, he tells PFT Live. His two-contract is only for salary cap reasons, but does admit that he's tempted to stick around and try to break Jerry Rice's all-time receiving record. He's only 307 catches behind Rice with 1,242. PFT's Mike Florio writes: ' And by rattling off so quickly that it would take four years to break Rice’s record, it’s clear that Gonzalez has done the basic math.  He has caught 326 passes during his first four seasons with the Falcons, and at that rate it would take four more to beat Rice. Regardless, another 93 catches could put both Rice and Gonzalez at a level that anyone else will have a hard time catching. ' var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
