HERE’S WHY THE CHIEFS ARE TERRIBLE
Carl Peterson tried the ol’ switcheroo at the last minute and it didn’t work.
From the Wisconsin State Journal:
“According to two NFL sources familiar with the negotiations, the Packers had drawn up the trade paperwork and sent it to the Chiefs to finalize the deal — a third-round pick for Gonzalez — only to have the Chiefs call them 10 minutes before the deadline to say it would take a second-round pick to get the deal done.
The Chiefs ended up keeping Gonzalez, who is now angry a deal didn’t get done.”
As a Bears fan I’m happy that Aaron Rodgers does not have this weapon in his arsenal. But as a football fan, I think it would have been nice for Gonzalez, seemingly one of the game’s good guys. It’s bad businessfor the Chiefs. They can use all the picks they can get. Having Gonzalez on their roster doesn’t help them get back to being a top NFL team.
