According to the source, the Packers, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles all made offers — the Giants offering a fourth-round pick, the Eagles and Packers offering third-rounders. The source said the Atlanta Falcons and Buffalo Bills made better offers but Gonzalez wasn't interested in playing for either team.
That's too bad. Gonzalez wanted to play for the Packers or Eagles, even though both teams have worse records that the Bills or Falcons and probably will have a harder time to make the playoffs. Guess the view that the Bills are a contender isn't seen by players around the league.....Ouch.
So, I guess we offered more than a 3rd rounder, along w/ATL. I'm guessing a 3rd that could escalate to a 2nd, or a 3rd and another pick, which would have been decent deals if Gonzo hadn't been such a wimp.
Currently, the Falcons and the Bills have better records than the Packers and the Eagles. In either Atlanta or Buffalo, Gonzalez would have been greeted as a superhero, and we’re baffled by his reluctance to play for either team.
Ain't that the truth. Well, I hope he enjoys playing out his career in obscurity out in KC. Beggers can't be choosers in all aspects.
