The Atlanta Falcons tight end realizes plenty of folks want to see him walk away from the NFL wearing his first Super Bowl ring. That would explain the 37-year-old’s willingness to address trade rumors, even if the topic has become a recurring distraction for the 2-5 Falcons.
“I totally understand it,” Gonzalez told ESPN.com late Monday night. “Everybody out there needs to understand that I’m not naive to it. I see it, too. This is the last [nine] weeks of my career. And right now, things are looking … you never know.
“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.”
