Could have been in the Fanshots but I feel like this is a topic worth posting about.
The Falcons are seriously considering trading for Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez and might even give up their second-round pick to make the deal.
What does this mean for the offense? Not sure - outside of the fact that Cassel will lose his most reliable target. The Chiefs would snag a very good deal here in a 2nd rounder. You could look at it like we traded TG for Cassel and Vrabel AND keep Tony out of the AFC - if you feel more comfortable. I'd take that trade.
My thoughts are that if this deal were to be made (and I would think this is the best we'll be offered unless we get some desperate teams come draft day) Pioli would get the #3 and #55 pick to get both O-Line and pass rushing/coverage LB. Interesting to see how this plays out....
