KANSAS CITY, Mo. – All was quiet at One Arrowhead Drive, as Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline came and went without a move from the front office.
Not too surprising when considering coach Chiefs Andy Reid said during Monday’s media session he “didn’t see any” potential moves when asked by a reporter if the team would make one.
Reid, who said he handles the football side of the house, also pointed out that any personnel moves dealing with chemistry in the form of a trade would come from general manager John Dorsey.
“You look at everything,” Reid said Monday. “That’s how John (Dorsey) goes through and evaluates them. That’s what he does. I defer all of that to him. That’s his expertise on that, but that’s one of the categories he looks at.”
A lot of Chiefs fans in recent weeks took to social media or called in to local sports radio shows to express hope for the return of current Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez.
That desire was dashed throughout Tuesday by numerous media reports stating the Falcons weren’t moving Gonzalez, whom then-Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli traded to Atlanta in 2009.
Meanwhile, the lone Tuesday trade came between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots.
The Eagles sent defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga and a sixth-round pick to the Patriots in exchange for a fifth-round pick, Eagles beat writer Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports on Twitter.
Notes: The Chiefs waived tight end Kevin Brock, according to Tuesday’s NFL Transactions report … Brock spent training camp with the Chiefs, was released, then re-signed earlier in the season.
