Falcons hope to rebound against Panthers

Gonzalez fights off rumors of trade demand

After losing to the Arizona Cardinals last weekend, the chorus of pundits calling for All Pro TE Tony Gonzalez to be traded to a winning teal allowing him a chance at a Super Bowl ring.  Funny enough, non of these calls are being made by Gonzalez himself.

With the Falcons sitting at 2-5, Gonzalez says it is “understandable” that folks want to see a Super Bowl ring on his finger, but points out not at the expense of his current team.

“But, like I said, I love my guys on this team too much to go ask for a trade. It would be something that would come from them where they said, ‘Hey, it makes sense because we could get something good for you and send you to a team that’s a contender.’ So I understand the thought process behind that.”

The Falcons next face the Carolina Panthers this weekend and hope to add another win to Gonzalez’s victory column.  Great tickets are still available.
