Report: Chiefs Reject Falcons Offer for Gonzalez


Recommended Posts

Frank Boal of FOX4 in Kansas City is reporting the Kansas City Chiefs have rejected a trade offer from the Atlanta Falcons for tight end Tony Gonzalez. The offer was for the Falcons' 55th overall pick according to Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post.

*Boal rarely breaks news about the Chiefs and the rest of the mainstream media hasn't picked up on this yet so we're certainly going to continue following this story until we can get another confirmation.

Rumors have been swirling that the Chiefs were nearing a deal with someone to move Gonzalez. The basis of some of these rumors? Gonzalez cleaning out his locker.

We'll never know if the future Hall of Fame tight end was simply cleaning out his locker before the start of the Chiefs first veteran mandatory mini-camp on April 17th or if he removed his belongings with the intention that he wouldn't be back.

If the GM Scott Pioli values Gonzalez more than the Falcons' second round pick then it's unlikely any team in the NFL will match his price. The overlord of the previous Chiefs regime, Carl Peterson, reportedly pushed his asking price from a third to a second and fifth round pick at the trading deadline last year.

We can debate about Gonzalez's worth all day long but he's worth whatever any team will offer him. If the offers that came in last season (Eagles' 3rd, Giants' 6th) are any indication, Tony Gonzalez will not be traded by the Chiefs this season.

If we could have gotten Dorsey in the deal it would have been worth it.

I would love to give a 2nd and a 5th (plus next years 2nd or something) for Dorsey. He won't fit a 3-4. (Well, you don't pay any 3-4 DT that type of money). Someone make it happen, and it would be our best FA ever.

I think that the Chiefs are going to trade him one way or the other. It would be silly for them not to trade him considering the team is rebuilding and he put up huge numbers in that spread offense they went to last year.

I guess an important question is whether Gonzalez would consider playing for the Packers or Bills (and the corollary, of course, whether the Packers or Bills are still interested). If Gonzalez doesn't want to go to either of those places, then I think that we're basically bidding against ourselves. If that's indeed the case, you would think that we could offer less than a 2nd and still get him.

Yeah I'd love to give a 2nd and a 5th for Larry Fitzgerald, too, but it isn't going to happen. They just drafted him.

Gonzo has missed 2 games in his career and is one of the best TEs in the game. A 2nd for him is very feasible.
