[Kansas City.com] With first-round draft pick Matt Leinart yet to be signed in Arizona, agent Tom Condon made a trip to Chiefs training camp on Tuesday afternoon and planned to dine at the Copper Kettle with another big client, Tony Gonzalez.
Kansas City president/general manager Carl Peterson and Condon were spotted chatting after the afternoon workout. Though it’s common for agents to visit clients at camp, Peterson has said for months that the club is working on a contract extension for Gonzalez, a seven-time Pro Bowl tight end.
Asked if Condon was in town to talk about an extension, Gonzalez said, “Oh, I don’t know. He’s my agent. He’s a good agent. He’s come to say hello. Obviously he’s not working with Matt Leinart, so he’s down here hanging out with us and Kyle Turley.
“So we’re all going to go to dinner, and if he and Carl have a chance to sit down, I’m sure they will. But if they don’t, they’ll do it back in Kansas City. Sooner or later, it’ll get done.”
Gonzalez has two years left on his contract, but the last year is voidable because of his Pro Bowl appearances. He’s entering his 10th year in Kansas City and has said he wants to finish his career as a Chief.
He’d like to have a new deal before the season starts.
