The Tony Gonzalez Era in Kansas City looks to be in its final moments, as the nine-time pro bowler will likely be traded per his request this afternoon.

The Kansas City Star weighs in with a somber piece about his glum teammates:

He wants to win, said cornerback Patrick Surtain, who was sent to the Chiefs in 2005 after asking Miami for a trade … We’re a very young team, and we knew we were going through some ups and downs this year. He doesn’t feel he has many more years to play, and he wants an opportunity to win. Who can blame him? He has every record you could want individually, but he wants the chance to play for the Super Bowl. He feels he has a better chance somewhere else.

The Associated Press also weighs in, reporting that a Chiefs spokesman said that no deal was pending.

As for where Gonzalez may be headed, Chiefs fan blog Arrowhead Pride has a few ideas, namely Philadelphia or Buffalo.

The trade deadline is 4 p.m. EDT today. We’ll keep you updated as this one develops.
