Matt Cassel to the Cowboys?

After spending his college career backing up Heisman winners Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart, and then thrust into a position to back up New England’s Tom Brady, Matt Cassel may possibly be on the move again. The situation in New England has changed. Matt Guitterez is impressive, a third-round pick was invested in rookie Kevin O’Connell, and Cassel is in the final year of his contract, which would allow him to walk in 2009.

According to Adam Shefter of the NFL Network, likely destinations for Cassel may be the Cowboys or Giants. New England may dangle the trade bait, looking to be compensated with a late round pick. Quarterbacks that may soon be on the market for back up roles may be Tampa’s Chris Simms and Miami’s John Beck, which would generate more interest than the seldom played Cassel. Schefter reports that the Dallas Cowboys have already offered a second-round pick for Beck, which is considerably high. They could probably pick up Cassel for a 6th or 7th rounder.

Cassel started no games as a Trojans quarterback, and spent some time playing tight end. He was developed under quarterback guru Norm Chow, and was believed to be the heir to Carson Palmer, until Matt Leinart made a push and won the job in 2003. Despite never starting under center, the New England Patriots drafted Cassel in the 7th round of the 2005 draft. He immediately secured the No. 2 spot, and held the role for 3 seasons.
