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.”
