Matt Cassel Traded to Chiefs

According to Adam Schefter of, the Patriots have traded Matt Cassel to the Kansas City Chiefs. Terms of the deal, which may or may not include Mike Vrabel, are supposed to be announced later today.

It appears that the Patriots will receive the #34 pick in the 2009 NFL Draft in exchange for Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel. While many Patriot fans will be disappointed, we here think that the additional $18+ million in Salary Cap room will also be very beneficial – especially if the Patriots can extend Vince Wilfork, which according to John Clayton the Patriots are already doing.

    Very exciting! I’m speculating the trade(s) for Vrabel will include the Chief’s 2009 1st round, 2010 2nd round, and maybe a filler pick in the 5th/6th round. With that, the Patriots have got to be looking at Aaron Curry at #3 overall. I’m also thinking Max Unger and Connor Barwin as Patriots picks in the first two rounds. Imagine Curry and Mayo in the middle…nasty!!! I’d really like to see New England pick up CB Leigh Bodden to round out the defense.
