Update: From Twitter.com/@SI_PeterKing
Posting on si.com that two sources tell me there is no new deal between the Chiefs and Matt Cassel.
Matt Cassel has a new deal with the Chiefs. From PFT:
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel can afford to treat his offensive linemen to a few steak dinners, or buy the big guys some Rolexes if he’s so inclined.
Cassel has reportedly agreed to terms on a six-year contract that includes $36 million in guaranteed money, according to Mike Lombardi of NFL Network.
Considering we gave up a second-rounder for him and will pay him less than Matt Stafford, I’m very happy with this development. This also shows the faith the Pioli Trinity is willing to place in Cassel. This also likely clears even more cap room for the Chiefs to operate today and beyond.
