Deal for Gonzalez in the works?

Might be nothing, might be something.

But the Kansas City Chiefs have postponed their regular Tuesday news conference until 4 p.m. ET.

Now it could just be they are waiting to see if they can trade tight end Tony Gonzalez. Clearly, the team is fielding offers and asking for second- and fifth-round picks in return. It is the price that was paid for tight end Jeremy Shockey and defensive end Jason Taylor, and the Chiefs believe Gonzalez is worth as much as those recently traded stars.

So far, teams are balking. But in the remaining four-plus hours before the trade deadline, no one knows whether the Chiefs or a potential trading partner will blink first.

If no one does, the Chiefs can do their news conference later — with Gonzalez still a member of the Chiefs.
