Kansas City Star: The NFL trade deadline is today, making it the
last day for the Chiefs to honor TE Tony Gonzalez's request for a
deal. The Chiefs also have tried to trade RB Larry Johnson, but
had failed to attract any interest. Not so with Gonzalez. Several
teams, including the Giants, Packers and Bills, expressed an
interest, and the Chiefs have until 3 p.m. to work out a trade.
Gonzalez's wish to end his career playing for a Super Bowl
contender rather than a rebuilding team such as the Chiefs. "He
wants to win," said CB Patrick Surtain, who was sent to the Chiefs
in 2005 after asking Miami for a trade. His request, though, had
more to do with wanting a lucrative new contract than playing for
a more successful team. "We're a very young team, and we knew we
were going through some ups and downs this year. He doesn't feel
he has many more years to play, and he wants an opportunity to
win. Who can blame him? He has every record you could want
individually, but he wants the chance to play for the Super Bowl.
"He feels he has a better chance somewhere else."
