Chiefs GM On Cassel As Starter: Never Say Never


Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs G John Dorsey was on the Danny Parkins show on 610 Sports Radio this morning and he did drop one quote that may have Chiefs fans starting to pani.

When asked if there was a possibility that Matt Cassel could return as the team’s starting QB in 2013, Dorsey said:

“Never say never.”

Now before you grab your torches and pitchforks and rustle up a mob to head out to Arrowhead Stadium, I suggest you take a deep breath.

Dorsey had to say that. Matt Cassel is still under contract with the Chiefs and as a decision about what to do at the QB position likely hasn’t been made yet, it would be utterly foolish and irresponsible for Dorsey to go on the record now as saying he is sending Matt Cassel out of town on a rail. Even if that is the case.

The Chiefs may decide that they want to restructure Cassel’s contract and keep him on as a veteran backup. They may try to trade him (good luck). Or they may simply release him outright.

Regardless it would be unwise for Dorsey to show his cards now.

So don’t start panicking yet. There are a lot of decisions that have to be made before we can even start sweating about this.
