Falcons Gonzalez Not Asking For Trade

Tony_Gonzalez_FalconsFuture Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez knows that the “trade me from a crappy team” cannon is something a player can fire only once in his future Hall of Fame career.

And so he’s not asking to be traded from the unexpectedly crappy Falcons. But Gonzalez has packed the gunpowder and loaded the ball, and he’s standing over the fuse with a lighted torch.

“We’ll know by [4:00 p.m. ET] tomorrow,” Gonzalez said. “But, like I said, I’m not going to be the one to go asking for a trade. It will have to come from them.”

In other words, he won’t ask for a trade. But he would welcome a trade.
