Default Tony Gonzalez to the Falcons

Just heard it on NFL live. Traded for a 2nd rounder in 2010. I like the deal for both sides if that is accurate, KC needs to rebuild even though I doubt Cassel is a fan of this trade. Matt Ryan is going to be dangerous next year. On another note Owen Daniels' path to the Pro Bowl got quite a bit easier for the foreseeable future.

Wow!! Give Matt Ryan a weapon like Tony Gonzalez? That's huge, unless KC knows something that the Falcons don't.

I had the Chiefs targeting one of the TE's in the 3rd round.

I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen now.

Well I think Kansas City got the better end of the deal. A 2nd round pick for a 33 year old Tight End that will be on the downside of his career. Seems to me that Kansas City got rid of him at the PERFECT time, and for great value.

It's a great year to draft a replacement. That's for sure.

Yeah, its a pretty good deal. Tony G goes to a contender, the Chiefs get a pretty good pick.

Hmmmmm...... makes me wonder if that prompts NOLA to go LB / S in round 1.

Well, with Crumpler signing with the Titans last year, it surely filled a void of a dominant TE with the Falcons.

I think its a fair trade all the way around. Chiefs can continue to build, and the Falcons will temporarily fill a void a very tough NFC South race.

Love it for The Falcons. Terrific weapon for Matt Ryan to have. ATL should have a pretty solid offense next season.

I'm wondering if Carolina is ever going to do something about their QB situation. They've got a pretty good team otherwise, certainly good enough to compete in the South IMO.

Great move by all involved.

KC does the right thing by one of their all time greats letting him go to a contender.

TG gets his wish to play games that matter.

AF get one of the best TE's in the game.

I like it for everyone.

But age is a bad factor here. Let me show you something. Gonzo is coming off of a 96-1058 and 10 td season. And he had 99 recs the year before. Shannon Sharpe had 62-770 and 8 tds when he was 35 years old. He could play another 2-3 years. So the Falcons could still fill this position is down the road. The guy is by no means washed up and Cassell has no security blanket to go with Bowe now. So now coverage goes that ways.

I would be shocked if the Falcons finish with a winning record. That division is topsy turvey. One year you're on top, the next, you're on the bottom.
