The Atlanta Falcons’ offseason just got a lot easier.

As reported by FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer, Tony Gonzalez has informed the Falcons he’ll return for more season.

There’s no doubt this is huge news. Last season, Gonzalez had 93 receptions for 930 yards and eight touchdowns at 36 years of age. In the postseason, he added 14 receptions for 129 yards and two touchdowns. He clearly still has plenty left in the tank.

The Falcons’ victory over the Seattle Seahawks was the first time in his 16-year career he had ever experienced a playoff victory. The Falcons failed to reach the Super Bowl, and Gonzalez told Glazer he’s coming back for one reason only: To win the Super Bowl.

On his Twitter, Gonzalez had this to say:

As a Falcons fan, I’m ecstatic. It’s a great start to free agency.

Bring on the 2013 season!
