Reported on nfl.com as well.

From rotoworld:

Falcons acquired TE Tony Gonzalez from the Chiefs in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
KC got its asking price, just not this year. Gonzo is 33, but coming off a 96-catch, 1,058-yard, 10-touchdown season. He obviously has a lot left, and going to a dome can't hurt. Atlanta relies on the run more than the '08 Chiefs did, though, and while Matt Ryan can only get better Gonzo's numbers will likely dip some. He'll steer attention away from Roddy White, but could also cut into possession receiver Michael Jenkins' targets.



Nice job by the Falcons.

I'm glad to see the Falcons rebounding so nicely from the Vick fiasco.

Been hearing possibilities of this all week...Looks like they finally came to an agreement.

A 2nd seems high, but they needed a TE and gonzalez is proven. Problem is, we all should know Mularkey likes a guy that can block a little too.

The falcons could be dangerous with a good TE.

Wow...I think this is a good deal for both sides. Atlanta (and particularly their QB) could use the veteran presence on the offense to help things progress...and the Chiefs are already in rebuilding mode...so why not completely restock. Gonzalez wasn't going to win anything with them...and he's given the franchise a lot...this was about as good a parting gift as he could have received.

Haha, I knew Pettigrew wasn't going to end up in Atlanta.

So when does Larry Johnson get moved?

There has to be SOMEBODY out there who wants a workhorse back like him. There has to be SOMEBODY who thinks they can fix his attitude. Maybe Denver can trade for him so they can two smug little pricks in the organization.

I don't get why KC is dumping Tony. They finally have a QB, have a really young but very talented team and the AFC West is pathetic and winnable for anyone of those 4 teams. Why dump your best playmaker in the passing game?

Altanta, just laid the smack down on the NFC South.

I am not sure I would go that far. After all, we were hearing the same thing concerning the Browns last year in the AFCN, and we all know how that turned out.

Now I know you weren't going that far. Just that I am never really impressed with offseason moves until we see how the play out on the field.
