Tony Gonzalez shoots down those trade rumors

Fans of the KC Chiefs and other teams have been clamoring for their team to make a trade for Tony Gonzalez. But he says it's not happening.

The Tony Gonzalez trade rumors die down before they really even got started. The Atlanta Falcons TE and former KC Chiefs TE told Jay Glazer of FOX Sports that he does NOT want to be traded.

Here's the message from Glazer:

I've seen a lot of tweets w rumors that Falcons should trade Tony Gonzalez, just got off the phone w him he absolutely does NOT want that. Wants to finish up in ATL

Things were moving quickly in Kansas City among the Chiefs fan base. Last night as the Falcons lost and moved to 1-4, I received a lot of tweets from Chiefs fans asking about a trade for TG. By this afternoon, Brandon Flowers and even the Chiefs GM, John Dorsey, had been asked about trading for TG. SB Nation's Falcons blog asked their readers if the Falcons should trade him.

Alas, it's not happening. Not that I expected it, too. But it was fun while it lasted!
