• Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli said that star tight end Tony Gonzalez has not asked for a trade. There was a report from an unnamed source saying Gonzalez was open to a trade. Then, Gonzalez told the Kansas City Star that he is "neutral" about a deal.

Pioli acted as if Gonzalez will remain in Kansas City, echoing the words of owner Clark Hunt, who said the team wants to keep Gonzalez. It appears the Chiefs are committed to Gonzalez as they try to bounce back from winning a total of six games the past two seasons. Meanwhile, Pioli sounds as if he will not trade Brian Waters, who reportedly wants to be traded.

• There is at least one player in the New York Jets' locker room who isn't thrilled by the prospect of the team trading for Denver quarterback Jay Cutler.

Meanwhile, the Broncos' one mandatory minicamp isn't until June. So Cutler, who is staying away from the team's offseason program, won't have to show up until well after the April 25-26 draft. Cutler has said he will only show for mandatory camps.

• Former San Diego offensive lineman Mike Goff has some bitter feelings as he moves on. The Chargers had no interest in re-signing Goff.
