Matt Cassel Traded to Chiefs

Scott Pioli and Bill Belichick have made a trade for the second straight day, with the Patriots sending QB Matt Cassel to the Chiefs, according to the NFL Network’s Adam Sheffner.

According to the Patriots’ team website, the Chiefs will send their 2009 second round pick (34th overall) for Cassel and Vrabel.

Reaction: Oh my God. This had to be expected though, considering yesterday’s seemingly random trade with the Chiefs. K.C. and New England will probably continue to have a good working relationship as long as Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli are in charge.

Matt Cassel moves on to a team with some weapons, but not nearly as many as he had with the Patriots. They have Dwayne Bowe at WR and Tony Gonzalez at TE, but the RB situation is currently unsolved. I wonder if Larry Johnson will now stay with the Chiefs considering they just picked up a good QB.

I would think the Patriots would get more in return, but I suppose by trading all of that money away, they are free to sign bigtime free agents like Ray Lewis, perhaps?

Did the Patriots get enough for Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel (a 2009 2nd Rd pick)?

  • No. They were worth at least one 1st Rd pick. (72%, 50 Votes)
  • Yes, No. 34 overall in a deep draft is great. (19%, 13 Votes)
  • Doesn't matter, I don't think Tom Brady is healthy. (9%, 6 Votes)

Total Voters: 69
