Bucs Trying To Add Cassel?February 28th, 2009
If Anwar Richardson and Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune are reporting this, then the blog mentioned below must have a crumb of credibility.
Per MusketFire.com, a Patriots blog, the Bucs are trying to work a deal to bring quarterback Matt Cassel to Tampa Bay.
In short, the Patriots blog hints that a “major” three-way deal involving the Bucs, Chiefs and Patriots will result in the Bucs landing Cassel.
This new deal is rumored to involve the Bucs’ 1st round draft pick this year (#19) and their second round pick in the 2010 draft (conditional),in exchange for Cassel. With NE sending Vrabel to KC for a draft pick, and KC getting another player. Also rumored is that TB is working details on a new contract roughly worth close to $ 30 million for four-years for Cassel.
Joe would rather pass on Cassel. Joe is of the impression Cassel is a system quarterback. If Cassel could be had for the right price (second round pick), OK. Joe just thinks Cassel benefited too much from playing in a perfect system. Otherwise, he would have been a starter in college.
