    Gonzalez?

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d80b8ad5a&template=with-video&confirm=true

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Tony Gonzalez, the most productive tight end in NFL history, will be traded to a contender if the Kansas City Chiefs get the right price.
    Tony Gonzalez, TE
    Kansas City Chiefs

    2008 stats
    Catches: 21
    Yards: 193
    Touchdowns: 2

    Three people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity that the nine-time Pro Bowl player could be dealt before the Tuesday trade deadline. The sources didn't want to be identified because a deal hasn't been struck.

    Gonzalez, who holds the NFL tight end record for receptions, touchdown catches and yards receiving, is active in civic and charitable affairs and enjoys great popularity in Kansas City. He has always said he would like to end his career with the Chiefs, who drafted him in the first round out of California in 1997.

    But the Chiefs (1-4) are rebuilding from the bottom up and not likely to contend for the Super Bowl any time soon. In spite of all his personal accomplishments, Gonzalez, 32, has never even won a postseason game.

    He would like an opportunity to play in a Super Bowl and the rebuilding Chiefs would like to acquire extra draft picks.

    Two people involved in the situation said there had been discussions with the New York Giants, but that talks had not been productive.

    The Giants traded tight end Jeremy Shockey to New Orleans last summer for second- and fifth-round draft picks in 2009. Shockey's replacement, Kevin Boss, has been a disappointment even though the defending Super Bowl champs are undefeated.

    Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson is a notoriously tough negotiator and would probably demand at least a second-round pick for the man many Chiefs fans believe is the greatest offensive player in team history.



    I would take him over shiancoe any day...

    At any rate we already gave the chiefs picks to get Allen and I don't want to send any more to them for any player. We need to kep some to bring in rookies for this staff to polish into elite athletes.

    I don't see a topic on the first page. A good tight end would help Gus out. He needs a quick target to throw to. I guess I miss wiggins a little bit. AD isn't the receiving force I thought he may develop to be this season.

    Actually, I have been happy with Shank as of late. Obviously Gonzo would be an upgrade, and if he was willing to stick around here for not an abnormally large amount of money it would be worth it. But I dont see us going after him right now.
