Pro Bowl Tight End Tony Gonzalez Headed To Atlanta

Tony Gonzalez finally got what he wished for, a trade from the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs had not been able to trade Gonzalez for quite some time because it was reported by Chiefs’ officials that trade partners were not willing to offer a fair amount for the 10-time Pro Bowler. But now with the new regime in KC, the rebuilding stage continues and Gonzalez is sent on his way.

From what I’ve heard, Gonzalez wanted out of Kansas City, not because of his experience, but because he isn’t getting any younger and he wanted the chance to compete in the playoffs. Hopefully the Falcons can do that for him. The Atlanta Falcons traded a 2010 second-round draft pick to the Kansas City Chiefs in return for Gonzalez.

The Falcons were in need of a tight end in order to compliment Matt Ryan, Roddy White, and Michael Turner. I believe the trade works out wonderfully for the Falcons because Tony can certainly produce on Sundays and the Falcons are not far away from being a force in the NFC.

I listed the Falcons selecting tight end Brandon Pettigrew with their first-round selection and the acquiring of Tony Gonzalez may force me to change that. I would say that the Falcons have made themselves one of the most explosive offenses in the league and they should spend a majority of their 2009 draft choices on defense. Stay tuned to my 2009 Mock Draft to see the changes before Saturday!
