The item concerns Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez, a guy we've written about several times here at MTC.

Banks says he's hearing "buzz" that the Eagles might have moved past the Falcons as a potential suitor for Gonzalez. Per Banks, the Birds are thought to be willing to offer up a third-round pick.

But according to the article, the Chiefs are looking for a second-rounder.

Gonzalez skipped the Chiefs' voluntary minicamp last week, although, according to The Kansas City Star, he has skipped the workouts before.

He turned 33 in February, but had a spectacular season in 2008, catching 96 balls for 1,058 yards and 10 touchdowns.

So what do we think? Would you give up a third-round pick for Gonzalez? What about a second-rounder?
