Cleveland Browns Rumors: Is Matt Cassel on Team’s Radar?
Now that Alex Smith will be joining the Kansas City Chiefs, there’s been plenty of talk about where Matt Cassel could end up playing for the 2013 season as the team is expected to release him following the trade with the San Francisco 49ers. Now, it appears one of the top Cleveland Browns rumors involves the possibility of Cassel joining the AFC North next season.
Despite spending one of their first-round picks on Brandon Weeden during the 2012 NFL Draft, the team isn’t 100 percent convinced on him being their quarterback of the future considering his numbers were far from impressive (3,385 passing yards with 14 touchdowns and 17 interceptions). Cleveland has already made it clear they plan on bringing in other quarterbacks this offseason to give Weeden competition and there’s a good chance they may not find anyone else better than Cassel.
Sure, his numbers may embarrassing last season, but Cassel will most likely have more experience than most of the other quarterbacks in consideration. There was a reason why the Chiefs were willing to bring Cassel on board back in 2009 and for a team that could use help at the quarterback position–this may not be a bad idea to at least consider.
While the argument can be made that Weeden struggled to live up to his expectations due to a lack of weapons on offense, bringing in a quarterback like Cassel would at least push him more in 2013 and could even benefit him down the road. Of course, the Chiefs will need to part ways with Cassel first before a move like this could even be considered–so it should be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of weeks.
