Gonzalez To Be Traded...If The Chiefs Can Get The Right Deal

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IOctober 12, 2008

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez may not be wearing a Chiefs uniform much longer. The Chiefs are willing to trade the future Hall of Famer if they can get the right deal.

"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," NFL.com reports.

Gonzalez was drafted by the Chiefs in 1997 and has often said that he would like to retire still wearing the colors of the Chiefs but he also wants to win the Super Bowl and it doesn't look like the Chiefs are headed for the big game anytime soon. In his career, Gonzalez has never even won a post season game.

The New York Giants have been allegedly involved with talks with the Chiefs. The Giants need a tight end after trading Jeremy Shockey to New Orleans during the offseason. Shockey's successor, Kevin Boss hasn't done as good as many expected and the Giants recognize that a change is needed.

Gonzalez would be a great Giant and the Giants seem like a Super Bowl contender right now.
