Cassel Full Of Riches?

Read this and then tell me if you think the New England Patriots can afford to franchise tag Matt Cassel. From PFT:

It works out to an average of $14,444,461.40 — and that’s the amount of the one-year tender that the Patriots would have to extend to quarterback Matt Cassel if/when the franchise tag is applied to him.

Given that Brady’s cap number in 2009 will be $14,626,000, franchising Cassel will tie up more than $29 million in cap space in only two players.

I don’t think there’s any chance that the Pats spend $30 million on two freakin’ quarterbacks. I also still think Tom Brady will be out there next season. Basically, I still like our chances to land Cassel if we land Pioli.
