    Kansas City Chiefs trade Tony Gonzalez to Atlanta Falcons - ESPN

    This is a great pick-up for the Falcons. This gives Ryan (who played great last year) another great set of hands to throw to. Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez & Matt Ryan could be a dangerous trio.

    Wow! That's a huge pick up for the Falcons, even though Gonzalez is at the tail end of his career he'll still be a good target for Matt Ryan. I think Gonzalez wanted to finish his career with the Chiefs but he also wanted to win a championship, and he believes the Falcons have a great chance to do that.

    Well I hate to see it, but he deserves a championship. This is the one year I'll route for Atlanta, TG really deserves a chance. Such a class act.

    So I guess until the draft the Chiefs are a little low on offensive weapons now.....

    Huge pickup for Atlanta for sure...Matt Ryan is somewhere smiling.

    A great addition to the Atlanta Falcons. He'll be an awesome leader for that young offense.

    Good move for Atlanta. He provides another target for Ryan and will be a good addition to the locker room.

    Matt Ryan's probably gonna pick up where he left off, in terms of the postseason.

    Let me just say this, I'm a Panthers fan and seeing as how the Falcons are in my division this is not good news at all. Gonzo is easily still top 5, probably top 3 TE in the league and with Turner grinding it, Ryan leading it, and Roddy White emerging to be a big time WR this is not good for anyone playing ATL this year.

    One thing no one talks about with Tony is his blocking ability. He hates to do it, but he really is the most complete TE in the league because of it. The Falcons are likely to win the NFC north because of this move.
