NFL Trade Rumors:
Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star reports that “people inside the Chiefs’ offices who adore” QB Matt Cassel concede that his time in Kansas City is most likely over.
Cassel is set to make $7.5 million for the 2013 season, which is way too much to pay for the kind of production that he’s provided this season. There’s still a chance that Kansas City could look to restructure his contract at the end of the season, but it seems as though the team will look to move in a new direction.
There’s been a lot speculation that they could end up targeting a quarterback in the first-round of next year’s draft, but at this point in time it’s hard to say that there’s actually a quarterback prospect worth taking, considering that the Chiefs are almost certain to have a top-five pick. For what it’s worth, we have them taking Geno Smith out of West Virginia with the No. 1 pick in our recently updated 2013 NFL Mock Draft.
