KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Even though Tony Gonzalez is retiring as a member of the Atlanta Falcons, the Kansas City Chiefs still view the 13-time Pro Bowl tight end as one of their own.

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said Monday that he’ll “always be considered a part of the Chiefs family” after Gonzalez reaffirmed Sunday that he doesn’t plan to play another NFL game.

Gonzalez was drafted by the Chiefs and spent his first 12 seasons in Kansas City. He was traded to the Falcons in 2009, when it appeared that Atlanta was going to give him a better shot at playing in the Super Bowl that eluded Gonzalez his entire career.

Gonzalez was presented with a half Chiefs, half Falcons commemorative helmet during halftime of Atlanta’s 21-20 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.
