Gonzalez traded to Falcons
April 23, 2009
As I wrote about yesterday, the Eagles were in the running to acquire tight end Tony Gonzalez from the Chiefs. Sure enough today, Gonzalez was traded to the Atlanta Falcons for a second round pick in the 2010 draft. The Eagles were only offering a third round pick and were not willing to trade for a second round pick.
I am kind of happy the Eagles didn’t land Gonzalez because I didn’t want to see them give up a second round pick for him. His health is questionable and he’s not the guy that’s going to come in and contribute to the team for years and years. The Eagles have brought in plenty of prospects at the tight end position and will surely sign someone they like at some point this weekend.
