Tony Gonzalez, who holds tight end records for receptions, touchdowns and yards receiving, asked the Chiefs to explore trades so he can make a run at a Super Bowl before his career is done.
Gonzalez had left the Chiefs’ locker room Monday by the time reporters were admitted.
Gonzalez’s teammates came back Monday from their bye week and tried to get ready for Sunday’s game against unbeaten Tennessee without letting the possible loss of one of the best and most popular players in team history become a distraction.
"It was business as usual," said left guard Brian Waters. "We were back to work. When we had the walk-through, Tony was in there as our starting tight end. Nothing had changed. Until his jersey changes, he’s still going to be a Kansas City Chief and we’re going to treat him as such."
