Good deal for both sides.

This shows why Matt Cassell didn't get more in a trade though. That's a lot of moolah. They're banking his not a flash in the pan.

hmmm with that much in guarantees makes me wonder if we're taking an OT.gotta keep him up right and Albert and Monroe or Smith could be a great bookend for many years

That is a lot hope he is the real deal.
They were already paying him what, 14 million this year? If they franchise him next year it'd be even more.

Again, this is why the pick wasn't that high. Because it's a huge financial risk.

A lot of cash, hopefully they keep him safe.

No Deal for Cassel?
Posted by Aaron Wilson on April 25, 2009, 3:33 p.m.
Contradicting a report from Mike Lombardi of NFL Network and National Football Post, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel has not signed a six-year contract extension that includes $36 million in guaranteed money, according to Peter King of SI.com.

King reports that two NFL sources say “there’s no truth,” to Lombardi’s report with one source asserting that “no substantive talks,” have taken place between Kansas City team officials and Cassel’s agent.

King had previously reported at the NFL owners meeting that Cassel’s representative, David Dunn, was miffed that the Chiefs hadn’t taken action to modify Cassel’s deal.

Cassel is currently assigned a one-year, $14.65 million franchise tender.

UPDATE: Tom Curran of NBCSports.com just got a text message from Matt Cassel that shoots down Mike Lombardi’s report on the National Football Post and NFL Network.

Cassel’s text message reads: “Thank you, but I haven’t signed a deal. I don’t know where they are getting their info.”

Yep Chiefs and Cassel are saying there has been no deal.

I think the Chiefs should have let Cassel show that he can be good QB for them before throwing all of that money at him.
