2013 Trade Deadline: Latest Buzz Surrounding the Kansas City Chiefs

The trade deadline is tomorrow Addicts. ESPN has put up a bunch of interesting scenarios on who could possibly be moved before the deadline. Teams will attempt to make plans trying to bring in guys that could help their team either make the playoffs or win a championship. So where do the Chiefs come in?

To tell you the truth, there really isn’t any buzz surrounding the Chiefs except for one guy. All anyone can think of right now, is General Manager John Dorsey making a move for current Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez. In my opinion, the move makes way too much sense. The Chiefs need a reliable target for Alex Smith. Dwayne Bowe is banged up and never gets the ball because Alex Smith refuses to look his way downfield in fear of throwing a pick. Donnie Avery is an excellent playmaker, but once again, Smith’s deep ball accuracy limits him from making big plays. Anthony Fasano is solid, but a guy like Tony Gonzalez would be excellent for Smith. Alex Smith excelled in San Francisco largely because he had an amazing security blanket in Vernon Davis.

The trade buzz surrounding the Chiefs is small, and most people do not think Gonzalez will be moved, but I think Dorsey should try to strike a deal to bring Tony G back to KC.
