It looks like Jared Allen is campaigning for his boy Tony Gonzalez to help him out with his purple reign up North. If that happens, I’m guessing a whole lot of Chiefs fans will be rooting for the Vikings come playoff time. The Vikes’ offense could definitely use some Gonzo power. From TwinCities.com:
Jared Allen sent a text message Saturday night to Tony Gonzalez, his good friend and old teammate from the Kansas City Chiefs. The word is, Gonzalez wants to be traded and the Chiefs are open to making that happen. Anyway, about that text message. Allen sent it after getting wind of the trade rumors.
“I said, ‘You want to get traded, man?’ ” Allen said he wrote in his text message to Gonzalez. “I was joking with him. I said, ‘Why don’t you come join me in Minnesota?’
The two teams have shown that they can get a deal done before, so you never know. Stay tuned, as we’ll be watching the Tony G situation like a hawk over the next 48 hours or so.
