[Kansas City.com] Tony Gonzalez appears likely to finish his playing career with the Chiefs. Larry Johnson and Brian Waters could receive their publicly stated wishes to finish theirs elsewhere.
Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said Monday during a break at the NFL meetings that the Chiefs had decided to hold on to Gonzalez, their longtime Pro Bowl tight end. Hunt also said decisions regarding Johnson and Waters haven’t been made but added that either or both could return to play for the Chiefs this season.
The three veteran players have been unhappy with the Chiefs at various times and for different reasons. Gonzalez has said he would like the chance to play for a Super Bowl contending team and asked last fall for a trade.
After last season’s trading deadline – and since then – Gonzalez softened his position some, taking a wait-and-see attitude regarding the Chiefs’ offseason moves before deciding whether he would again request a trade.
Johnson and Waters have both asked to be traded this offseason.
