Tony Gonzalez trade rumors continue to run rampant. But will the Chiefs really trade him? Warpaint…
New Team Interested In Gonzalez
Warpaint Illustrated.com has also confirmed that an unidentified fifth team is in the mix. Currently the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills are also competing for Gonzalez.
Of those teams, reportedly the Giants have approached the Chiefs with the most serious offer. However per our source, "no team is willing to give the Chiefs multiple picks for Gonzalez."
That does not bode well for Kansas City's hopes of acquiring the multiple-pick package they've been seeking per earlier reports. However, our source did expect a deal would be struck today, and the fact that the Chiefs moved back their 2:00 PM press conference to 3:00 PM today to coincide with the trade deadline favors that.
In other news, a league source tells Warpaint Illustrated.com that the New York Jets have shown some "lukewarm interest" in Larry Johnson, but his recent incident that was reported in the Kansas City Star this morning, where Johnson allegedly pushed a young woman in a bar incident, could impede any trade. However, the Chiefs are aggressively shopping Johnson.
The Chiefs are also shopping middle linebacker Napoleon Harris and possibly cornerback Patrick Surtain. Quarterback Damon Huard still is garnering interest from the New England Patriots.
Stay tuned to Warpaint Illustrated.com for the latest on the Chiefs trade maneuvers.
