Report: Giants And Bills Front Runners To Land Gonzalez

League sources have informed us that the New York Giants and the Buffalo Bills are in the lead to acquire Pro Bowl tight end Tony Gonzalez from the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs started off asking for a first round pick but are now asking for a third round pick. The Bills appear very willing to give up a third round pick but the Chiefs are waiting to see if the Giants are also willing to give up a 2009 third. The Chiefs are well aware that Gonzalez would like to play for the Giants and they are hoping that they budge and offer a third round pick. The perennial Pro Bowl tight end is signed through 2011 at reasonable base salaries for a player of his caliber ($1M in ‘08, $4M in ‘09, $4.5M in ‘10, $5.75M in ‘11), though $17M of his most recent contract in guaranteed and could include some of the base salaries listed above.
