Tony Gonzalez says this will be his last season playing in the NFL.

Statistically he is the best TE of all time, but the dude has never won a playoff game.

I'd rather have Shannon Sharpe's career with some gaudy numbers, 3 Super Bowl rings and also make the Hall of Fame than own all of the tight end receiving records without ever winning a playoff game.

That said, Tony Gonzalez has some insane numbers and he is still producing while getting ready to start his 16th season.

Right now Tony Gonzalez has: 1,149 receptions for 13,338 yards and 95 TDs.

He will most likely end up with over 1,200 receptions for over 14,000 yards and over 100 TDs.

The 1,149 receptions rank 2nd all time for all players, behind only Jerry Rice.

Pretty awesome stats when you think about it, but I'd still take Shannon Sharpe's career over Tony G's.
