Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is aware of the trade rumors.

“I’m still happy as I can be to be a Falcon” Gonzalez said. “I know there were trade rumors out there. I didn’t ask for a trade. That wasn’t me. I signed up and this is the team that … I came back to play with these guys on the team. And I’m enjoying myself win lose or draw.
“Obviously I’d rather win. It makes it a lot more fun. But there is no way I would think about jumping ship because I love playing for this team I love playing for this city.”

This is hardly surprising from Gonzalez. The sources of the rumors that have involved him have mainly been from fans. Since Gonzalez is in the last year of his career (seriously this time) the talk of trading Gonzalez to a contender is from fans who want to see him get a shot at a championship especially since that was the reason he was traded to Atlanta in the first place.
