Tony Gonzalez won't be walking away from football just yet.

The Atlanta Falcons tight end, who just completed his 17th and final NFL season, was added to the Pro Bowl roster on Tuesday after San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis pulled out. It will be Gonzalez's 14th trip to the Pro Bowl.

Gonzalez addressed the news with the following tweet:

Gonzalez was a second alternate for the Pro Bowl but was added to the roster after Davis pulled out. Gonzalez, a future Hall of Famer, finished his career with 1,325 receptions for 15,127 yards and 111 touchdowns.
