Tight end Tony Gonzalez spoke to the media Thursday and addressed trade rumors about his future with the Falcons.
Instead of muddying things with my own words, here’s Gonzalez’s entire statement on that topic:
“I don’t know about you, but my mentality, the way I work sometimes, I’m always curious (about the future) and sometimes I think too much. I try to work towards shutting my brain off sometimes, so yeah, of course you have to look at (regrets on returning) like, ‘What if this, what if that.’ But at the same time, you look at it and say this is what I signed up for. I don’t have any regrets. I am still as happy as I can be to be a Falcon. I know there was trade rumors out there. I didn’t ask for a trade. That wasn’t me. I signed up and this is the team. 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. That makes it a lot more fun, but there is no way I would even think about jumping ship. I love playing for this team. I love playing for this city. Like I said, we still got a chance, too. If I start thinking like that, I think we wouldn’t have a chance and I’m not there yet. Not even close.”
