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.
