Matt Cassel QB MIN Nov 30 '12
According to the Kansas City Star, even "people inside the Chiefs' offices who adore" Matt Cassel concede the quarterback will not be back in 2013.
Cassel is due to earn $7.5 million in 2013. Even if he was willing to restructure to return as a backup, it's not going to happen. He's been benched twice now, with frustrating fans directing their vitriol in his direction. Both sides will move on even if Cassel's biggest NFL supporting remains the Chiefs general manager. Cassel will have to accept a backup job on the open market.
