Actually he'd asked Carl Peterson to move him but Peterson said there weren't adequate offers. Then when piloi came in he made the deal. Frankly KC got a 2nd round draft pick for him so it was win win. Tony had zero chance at a playoff win in KC and then KC could've invested in a younger player, though I don't recall who they used that pick on. And now 3 years later Tony is likely to retire. I hope he gets a playoff win. He is a great player and seems like a good guy from the interviews I've seen or read.
