The Internet and sports talk radio were buzzing Monday about the possibility of the Falcons trading for All-Pro tight end Tony Gonzalez.
According to the National Football Post, the Falcons “are seriously considering” sending a second-round pick (No. 55 overall) to the Chiefs for the 33-year-old tight end.
The AJC’s D. Orlando Ledbetter looked into the rumors and found nothing concrete, but says things could “percolate” into something.
Gonzalez caught 96 passes for 1,058 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.
The Falcons’ top tight end Justin Peelle caught 15 passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns.
Would this be a good move for the Falcons?
