TE Tony Gonzalez to Atlanta

Last October, there was talk that Kansas City might trade TE Tony Gonzalez to the Packers, but nothing came of it. One of the stumbling blocks was that KC wanted a 2nd round pick for him; maybe GM Ted Thompson was willing to offer a 3rd round pick. They held out for a 2nd and finally Atlanta was willing to part with one for him. I didn't read any rumors this offseason and assumed KC was going to keep him.

I think that was too high a price for the twilight of his career, but the pick does lose some of its value since KC won't receive it until 2010.
