    That makes it seem less ludicrous, but I happen to believe in my heart of hearts that the Eagles wouldn't have given them a 3rd rounder even if that's all it would take. That is how the organization is. Lorenzo Booker for a 4th, but no Tony Gonzalez for a 2nd or a 3rd. Honestly.

    He's worth a 3rd round pick for sure.

    He may only have 3 more years left (probably more he takes such good care of himself) but so many 3rd rounders never amount to anything.

    There were several teams interested in Tony G. 3 teams offered a third round pick for him but Peterson would not trade him for anything less than a 2nd rounder. Heck even the Packers had an extension ready for him to sign but last minute in the trade deadline Peterson told the Packers that he no longer wanted their 3rd round pick which they had agreed to, instead he wanted their second in a last ditch effort to get higher value. At his age Tony G. is NOT worth a 2nd rounder:

    ProFootballTalk.com - PACKERS THOUGHT THEY HAD A DEAL FOR GONZALEZ


    Wow.

    Not only were the Packers serious players for Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez, but the Pack also thought they had a deal.

    According to Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal, the Packers drew up the paperwork that would have sent a third-round pick to Kansas City for Gonzalez, only to have the Chiefs back out ten minutes before the 4:00 p.m. EDT trading deadline, and demand a second-round pick.
    Bills:
    What’s a few draft picks for Gonzalez? : Bob Dicesare : The Buffalo News

    Two NFL sources say the Bills offered a third-round draft pick for Gonzalez. Sources also say that Peterson refused to budge off his asking price, reported to be a No. 2 and a No. 5. If he was going to part with the face of the franchise it would be for what he considered commensurate return.
    Eagles:
    Eagles release Hunt, sign Tracy White | Philadelphia Inquirer | 10/15/2008

    A league source said the Eagles' interest in tight end Tony Gonzalez soured when they found out the Kansas City Chiefs wanted more than a third-round draft pick, as reported by NFL.com. Gonzalez remained with Kansas City.

    7-0 and the Colts' season is over!

    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
