Not so fast, says Gonzalez. The tight end told Jay Glazer of FOX Sports Tuesday that he absolutely does not want to be traded.
It would make for a nice story if Gonzalez was given an opportunity to revisit past glories while giving the 5-0 Kansas City Chiefs a shot in the arm, but it's easy to understand why he wants to finish his career in Atlanta.
Gonzalez never was going to put off retirement for any team other than the Falcons. It's too late in the process for the 37-year-old to learn a new offense and develop a strong rapport with a different quarterback.
