Johnson and Gonzalez unhappy with Chiefs

According to the Kansas City Star, Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez and running back Larry Johnson spent time this week campaigning to be put out of their Kansas City misery, whether that's by trade, release or team officials just changing the locks - anything that gets them out of a Chiefs uniform.

Gonzalez said that he would like to be traded if the Chiefs don't hire the right coach, and specifically if they hire a college coach such as Iowa's Kirk Ferentz as Herm Edwards' replacement.

Meanwhile, Johnson said, "Ever since I came to Kansas City, they've been trying to push me out the door."

No deal for Gonzalez

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Chiefs President Carl Peterson decided to retain Tony Gonzalez after turning down the best offer from Green Bay, which was a third-round selection. Peterson wanted a second-rounder to make the deal.

The Packers reportedly increased their compensation offer several times. Gonzalez also told the Chiefs that he would accept a trade to Green Bay, and planned to play three more seasons.

Kevin Boss is still the Giants' starting tight end after the trading deadline came and went Tuesday and the Giants did not deal for Kansas City's Tony Gonzalez.

According to the New York Daily News, the Giants had offered a sixth-round pick, although that was nowhere near the Chiefs' apparent asking price.

Gonzalez says: Make me a Giant

According to the New York Daily News, Tony Gonzalez wants to play for the New York Giants.

Gonzalez, the future Hall of Fame tight end, has requested a trade from the Kansas City Chiefs. And not only has he asked to be traded to a contender, but he specifically mentioned the Giants.

The Giants have reportedly offered a sixth-round pick, but the Chiefs are looking for either a second- or a third-rounder.
