That's VERY interesting. It almost sounds like he is trying to say something by NOT saying it. The line that really tells me a lot is this one: When asked specifically about going back to the Chiefs, he said "And if that's something that they [the Falcons] wanted to do to help their franchise, that's up to them. But it wouldn't be coming from me."
And this line is also intriguing: "I'm not saying, 'Things are bad around here, so I'm out of here.' ''
But he's not NOT saying that either!
Remember, Tony didn't leave the Chiefs because he disliked the organization or the city, or had a conflict with teammates. He left for one reason---to get a Super Bowl ring. He also "decided not to retire in order to chase an elusive Super Bowl ring this season."
How much is he worth to the Falcons when they are going nowhere and this is his last season, anyway? How much would he be worth to the Chiefs to come back and help out this offense? How much would he be worth just in PR for the Chiefs to have him come back here and retire where he started?
I'm not sayin' ... I'm just sayin'.
