Tony Gonzalez is open to a trade from the Atlanta Falcons, but the team has no interest in dealing him.

"Everybody out there needs to understand that I'm not naive to it," Gonzalez told "I see it, too. This is the last (nine) weeks of my career. And right now, things are looking ... you never know.

"But, like I said, I love my guys on this team too much to go ask for a trade. It would be something that would come from them where they said, 'Hey, it makes sense because we could get something good for you and send you to a team that's a contender.' So I understand the thought process behind that."

The Falcons have a 2-5 record and are without Julio Jones for the rest of the season.
