The tight end told Jay Glazer of FOX Sports Tuesday that he absolutely does not want to be traded.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a high-ranking Falcons source, that Atlanta has no interest in trading Gonzalez despite the Jones injury. The Falcons are not yet ready to give up on the season, Rapoport added

The Seahawks don't have a 3rd round pick in the 2014 draft as it was part of the trade to Minny for Harvin. Once Harvin comes back this receiving stuff will come to a rest. Tony is a receiving TE and right now they don't need that. They need someone who can block. Willson has done fine on the receiving side when given the chances. I was looking at the TE FA list and one name stood out - Will Heller. Heller is not a receiving threat but a solid blocker. He is on the older side but may be a good short term fix.

And if the Falcons are willing to pay most of his contract, I'd offer them a 4th round pick and see if they take it. Not sure they'll get a 3rd from anyone for a one year rental.

If a trade happened, fans would turn on Blank for giving up on the season and/or would say Gonzo secretly asked for the trade. It would be a PR nitemare either way. Not every player wins a SB. Money usually dulls that pain.
I bet he could cut block like a boss!Largent80 wrote:Might as well get an o-lineman, because the way ours is thinned and playing, G would be just another blocker.
