WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Matt Cassel | Free Agent QB

Matt Cassel sees action in relief of Matthew Stafford.

Cassel was 5/11 for 45 yards, also adding a 14-yard run. The veteran backup saw action in garbage time to wisely preserve Stafford's health. Hopefully Detroit can compete for 60 minutes next week against Green Bay.

Matt Cassel is signing with the Lions, according to Mike Garafolo.

Cassel will likely slide in as Matthew Stafford's backup under new head coach Matt Patricia, though Jake Rudock should also remain in the quarterback room. This signing isn't a surprise, as Cassel, Patricia, and GM Bob Quinn were all in New England at one point. The veteran signal-caller turns 36 in May.

The Titans will release quarterback Matt Cassel.

Cassel has been Marcus Mariota's backup for each of the past two seasons, but new head coach Mike Vrabel probably wants to get his own guy in the quarterback room or stick with Brandon Weeden behind Mariota. Turning 36 in a couple months, Cassel should be able to land with another team as a veteran presence if he chooses to continue his career.

Matt Cassel plays OK in Week 5.

With Marcus Mariota (hamstring) out, the veteran quarterback started for the Titans, but they came up short against Miami. Cassel was 21/32 for 141 yards and one touchdown in the game, but he did lose a fumble. He played fine and completed passes versus the Dolphins, but the running game couldn't get anything going which didn't help things. Hopefully Marcus Mariota is back on Monday night against the Colts in Week 6, but Cassel offers sneaky upside in very deep leagues if he makes another start against a vulnerable Colts secondary.

Titans quarterback Matt Cassel is out about six weeks with a thumb injury.

Cassel injured his thumb yesterday during OTA, but he should be back for training camp. Cassel will backup and continue to help mentor Marcus Mariota this season.
