Greatest ever. Full of class. Just a great guy. Sad to see him go out with a ring, but he's a legend.

One of the greatest ever, in so many ways. Thanks for everything, Tony. Glad you got a playoff win, at least.

So nothing in that quote says he's done although I can see why one would think that. Is there anything else on this?

Gonzalez was one of the those young players who i first started following when i really got into football around 1997. Such a great player, i wish he could have at least gotten to a superbowl.

But I can complain because Moss gets a second chance at a ring.

He was a very good player throughout his career. I wish him the best in whatever he does in the future.

He should make the Hall of Fame.

Truly a sad day for the NFL. One of the best plays on and off the field. For-sure Hall of Famer... just wish he got a ring.
