[Chiefs Blog] Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez re-wrote the Pro Bowl record book on Sunday.
And he also said he’d “have no problems staying with the Chiefs”, depending on what moves the club makes in the off-season.
Gonzalez caught six passes for 98 yards and a touchdown in the AFC’s 30-21 loss to the NFC.
He broke Jerry Rice’s Pro Bowl career records for most catches and most receiving yards, and he tied the record for most touchdowns in the Pro Bowl.
As for Gonzalez’ future with the Chiefs, he told NBC in a sideline interview that he spoke with new general manager Scott Pioli to dispel some reports from Hawaii concerning his future.
“I spoke to Pioli last week because there were some trade rumors out there saying I wanted to have a trade, and that wasn’t the case,” Gonzalez said. “I said, ‘This is the reason I would want a trade.’ It was taken out of context.
“I’ve been in three playoff games and won none. Just looking at the Super Bowl this year, it would be so great to get that opportunity to play for that.
“I’m not saying the Chiefs can’t do that. They will eventually turn that corner; it’s how soon can they do that. Once free agency comes, and they’re wheeling and dealing, and they’re making trades, and it looks good, then I have no problem staying with the Chiefs.”
