Tony Gonzalez is finally getting out of Kansas City. Gonzalez was accquired in a trade by the Atlanta Falcons for a 2nd round draft pick in 2010. Yes, Atlanta didn’t even give away a pick this year for arguably one of the top 3 receiving tight ends in the league. And suddenly the Falcons go from “probably making the playoffs again” to a dark horse Super Bowl contender. Holy crap, that team is pretty GD scary right now.
Tomorrow’s going to be more NFL-intensive with the draft this weekend, but we should probably mention Torry Holt’s thank-you note to the city of St. Louis, which was summed up nicely on KSK by Christmas Ape. As far as Georgia’s Matt Stafford going No. 1, who knows. Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry has already said he’ll take less money, guaranteed and otherwise, to go No. 1. And that could actually go down. Stay tuned.
