Matt Cassel

On Tuesday, the Dallas Cowboys announced that they have traded with the Buffalo Bills for Matt Cassel.

Earlier on Tuesday the Cowboys brought up practice squad quarterback Kellen Moore to the 53-man roster.  Giving the Cowboys two back-up quarterbacks for Brandon Weeden.

This will be Cassel’s fifth team in eight years (New England, Kansas City, Minnesota, Buffalo and now Dallas). Cassel is a  6-4, 238-pound QB that once filled in for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady when he went down with a knee injury (2008).  Cassel threw for 3,693 yards and 21 touchdowns that year.  In 2010 with the Chiefs, Cassel threw for 3,116 yards and 27 touchdowns to 11 interceptions, by far his best season in the NFL.  But, it’s all the other seasons that worry Dallas fans on putting Cassel back there.  Between all the injuries and the fact he has 97 TDs to his 106 INTs/FUMs, Cowboy fans will have to hold their breath every time he takes a snap.

There are no details on who the player was that the Cowboys gave up, but we will update you here as we get the word.  Also,  NFL Media’s Albert Breer reported that the teams will swap late 2017 draft picks as well.
