Should Ted Make Another Pass at Gonzalez?


Bill Williamson thinks that the Chiefs may use the owners’ meeting in California to seek trade offers for Tony Gonzalez.  Given Ted Thompson’s past interest, any chance he sniffs around again?  Yes, he got burned by Chiefs’ management last year, but there’s a new team in place now — and they’re working hard to grow younger.  Gonzalez is very well-paid but depending on what the Packers would have to give up (obviously) I think he could be worth it.

At the time, I was skeptical about giving up a third-round pick for Gonzalez.  I was wrong.  His success last season, and his ability to fight off consistent double-teams, was truly remarkable.  If Thompson wants to trade down again this year — can there be any doubt that he’ll try? — I’d be enthusiastic about using one of our draft picks, even a second rounder, on Gonzalez.

    I think we should take a run at him. He is a true talent and we should be able to get him for a decent price. I don’t think I would go as high as a second, but a third for sure.

    We could give them the pick we got from the Brett Favre trade 🙂
