Report: Pats deal Cassel to Chiefs
Culver City, CA (Sports Network) - The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly acquired quarterback Matt Cassel in a trade with the New England Patriots.

According to the NFL Network, the teams have agreed on compensation, although terms were not immediately known.

Cassel had accepted the Patriots' franchise tender earlier this month and is set to earn $14.651 million in 2009, an average of the top five salaries at quarterback. He would probably be negotiating a long-term deal with the Chiefs.

The 26-year-old signal-caller made a name for himself in 2008 after taking over for an injured Tom Brady in the season-opener. He helped the Patriots to a record of 11-5, including 10-5 in his 15 starts, but New England did not qualify for the playoffs.

A seventh-round pick of the Patriots in 2005, Cassel threw for 3,693 yards with 21 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions in 16 games. He had thrown a total of 39 passes in his first three seasons as Brady's backup.

It would mark the second trade between the teams in as many days, although there has been no confirmation from either team on Friday's deal that reportedly sent linebacker Mike Vrabel to Kansas City.

The Chiefs' personnel decisions are now being made by Scott Pioli, who left his position as Patriots' vice president of player personnel in January to take the Kansas City job.

NFL.com: Matt Cassel traded to the Chiefs



NFL.com reports that the Patriots have agreed to trade Matt Cassel to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Patriots have not yet confirmed the move, but the Boston Globe, ESPN and SI.com are also reporting it.

Compensation was not yet clear. The Patriots prevented Cassel from reaching free agency by designating him as their franchise player earlier this month. The Chiefs own the third overall pick in April's draft, but a second-round pick (the Chiefs will get either pick 34 or 35) could be a more likely return to New England. NBC Sports reports the third pick would not be part of the deal.

The trade would be the second between the two teams in two days, after New England sent LB Mike Vrabel to the Chiefs yesterday. Chiefs GM Scott Pioli left the Patriots in January to assume the top job in Kansas City.

Cassel would become the Chiefs' presumptive starting quarterback, ahead of Tyler Thigpen on the depth chart. The trade would indicate that the Patriots have confidence that QB Tom Brady is on track to return from the ACL tear that ended his season in Week 1 last season.

But the Patriots will probably have to find a new backup quarterback to provide insurance in case Brady must miss more time.

Cassel was a seventh-round pick for New England in 2005. He never started a game in the NFL or in college, where he was a career backup at Southern California, until Brady was injured in September. Cassel led the Patriots to an 11-5 finish in Brady's absence.

Ironically, it was against the Chiefs that Brady was hurt and Cassel got first got the opportunity to play.

So that means the Chiefs will have taken out the Pats starting QB in two straight years.

Of course, this could blow up in the Pats faces if Brady's blown out knee is gimpy.

So the Chiefs had no trust in Thigpen I see. Well good move and the Pats should get alot for him.

Great deal for both teams IMO.

The Chiefs need to be able to protect Cassell and provide a running game as well. The trade of a pick is a small matter considering they got a proven QB; however, that QB was playing on last year's Super Bowl contender. Scott Paoli GM makes deal with his former employer's team.

New England dumps some salary for cap space and gains another potential RB for success and/or a high draft pick. Not bad either, unless Tom Brady does not return to form this year...
