Lombardi: Chiefs' Gonzalez Empties Locker at Arrowhead



The rumors (and we stress rumors) of a Tony Gonzalez trade are gaining steam.

Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post appeared on the NFL Network today and said the chances of the Chiefs trading Tony Gonzalez are at 80-85%.  He reported over the weekend that the Falcons were "seriously considering" giving up their second round pick (#55 overall) in order to acquire the future Hall of Fame tight end.

Lombardi also said that Gonzalez has cleared all of his personal items out of the Arrowhead complex.

Nothing is concrete or imminent at this point.

Of course, people do clean things. We could be getting jazzed over a player clearing out his locker out of simple cleanliness. Could Tony just be doing a little spring cleaning? It's probably the most logical conclusion we can reach right now.

Lombardi is a former personnel executive for the Raiders and Broncos so he has ties to the AFC West.

Stay tuned for more information...
