Gonzalez to Eagles?
April 22, 2009
It is being reported that the Eagles are the front runner in a possible trade scenario for Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez. Another possible candidate for a trade is the Falcons, a team that some mock draft specialists have going after tight end Brandon Pettigrew with their first pick.
Gonzalez has already discussed wanting out of Kansas City but the Chiefs want to hold on to him until they can get a price they are willing to trade for him. This price is reported to be a second round draft pick; however, it is also reported that the Eagles are only offering a third. Although Gonzalez is a proven veteran, it is not a secret that he does not have a lot of tread left on the tires. I do not think he warrants a second round pick, but if the Eagles could get him for a third round pick it would be a great addition.
