If you were wondering why the Chiefs were unable to move Tony G last week, it's probably because, deep down, Carl Peterson really wasn't all that interested in doing so.

Philadelphia Eagles president Joe Banner said on the team's website that he thought the Chiefs were "very reluctant" to trade Tony G.

"I do think the Chiefs have confirmed that we were one of the teams that inquired about (tight end) Tony Gonzales and it's a true story....

"Based on the comments coming out since (the trade deadline) and this was our read of the situation when we got in touch (with Kansas City) was that they really did not want to trade him. It didn't mean that if there was something that had blown them away they wouldn't have been interested in terms of somebody being willing to overpay. But the read we had from the beginning was that they were very reluctant, although they felt compelled based on his request (to be traded) to at least listen to offers they got. I guess in the end they made the judgment that none of the offers they got were good enough."
