Hey First post here, I saw rumors that Tony G would have no problem being moved to a contender. My first reaction was negative as I'd like the see him finish his career as a chief.
But then I got to thinking, it would be be nice to give Tony a chance at a ring, plus we are definitely in rebuilding mode. Maybe adding another draft pick and the flexibility it brings is the best long run decision for this franchise.The only negatives I see is that it basically tells Larry Johnson we are not trying to win this year and next year. And we also lose on some solid veteran leadership for are young guys on Offense Bowe, Jamaal Charels, Brandon Albert, Croyle.
Would you guys consider trading Gonzales? what would we have to get back in return? I was thinking a 2nd rd pick, that was what it cost the Bolts to pick up Chris Chambers from Miami lastyear at the deadline or maybe a 3rd and 5th round pick.

I think, the hand that will be played here will be by the fans. I think most of us would like to have Gonzales win a ring, but the truth is that I think at 32, Gonzo has a few more years left in him and very could be back on a contending team with the Chiefs before his career is over.
Then, the question was posed to Gonzalez on Wednesday and he set the record straight. While it might not be the ideal scenario, he could see himself going to Chiefs management and requesting a trade to a Super-Bowl contender.
“Yeah. I definitely could, but I love being a Chief,” Gonzalez said Wednesday. “But if it was something where it was going to take three or four years or whatever before they get this thing right, I think it would be in their best interest to maybe see what they can get and send me off.
“But I love being a Chief and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else at this point. At the end of this season, hopefully I don’t have to ask that. Hopefully we get this thing turned around. I’ve got a family now. I came here when I just turned 21, so this is home. That’s where I’m at right now with that.”
It makes sense. A rebuilding Chiefs team gets a first-day draft pick in return for a tight end that is only going to play another couple of seasons. Gonzalez knows what a delicate subject it is. He handled his answer just the right way.
But know this: The losing has to be driving him mad. He hasn’t won a playoff game as a member of the Chiefs. Nor has linebacker Donnie Edwards, who could be another candidate Kansas City could consider trading. If Kansas City can get fair value for Gonzalez and/or Edwards, they are deals the Chiefs should think long and hard about.
If he would actually ask for a trade I would not be totally opposed to it if it was to a contender and we got something great for him. He has proven that even at age 32 he still has atleast a couple good more years ahead of him. Though I would want him to stay just so he can extend all the records hes breaking as a Chief.
If we can garner some confidence from yesterday's win and put some more games like yesterday's together this year, Tony will probably stick around IMO. I think the biggest thing is that he feels like he has a real shot at it within the next 2 years max. Tho, I think Tony still has another 3-4 good years in him. The guy takes excellent care of himself.
Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!
What kind of topic is this?There is no way this should be thought of.Tony's focus is on this next game.Tony is not worrying about being traded and he doesn't want to.He wants win as a Chief while going into this week and he has a record to break.
