UPDATE: Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly released quarterback Matt Cassel after four seasons. Cassel, 30, appeared in 48 games (47 starts) and completed 854 of 1,459 passes (57.3 percent) for 59 touchdowns to 44 interceptions in his four-year stint.
His best season happened in 2008 with New England when he completed 63.4 percent of his passes for 3,693 yards with 21 TDs to 11 INTs in 16 games (15 starts). He should last long on the open market, as he’s been closely tied in rumors to the Minnesota Vikings. He could also compete for the starting job with the Bills, Browns, Cardinals, Jets or Jaguars. Then again, he could also back up Brady again.
Cassel now becomes the top free agent quarterback on the open market, ahead of the five guys listed below.
