Cassel only threw three passes Saturday against the Raiders, completing two for 16 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Cassel is entrenched as the backup in Tennessee, so the Titans coaching staff opted to play him for just one drive to open the second half. The veteran is unlikely to see the field extensively unless Marcus Mariota gets hurt.

Cassel completed three of five passes for 55 yards, and added a three-yard run in Saturday's preseason opener against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Cassel looked solid in his Titans debut, but he is very unlikely to move up or down from his current spot as Marcus Mariota's backup regardless of performance. Mariota did miss four games due to injury as a rookie, so it wouldn't be shocking if Cassel saw the field at some point during the season.

Cassel is the clear favorite to back up Marcus Mariota after the Titans waived fellow quarterback Zach Mettenberger on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Cassel brings veteran experience in the locker room, and has proven capable of holding his own at the NFL level in the past. The soon-to-be 34-year-old got a nice early birthday present with Mettenberger's departure, especially since Mariota did miss four games last year due to injury.

Cassel has signed a one-year deal with the Titans, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cassel, who turns 34 in May, continues his tour around the NFL, and in his new uniform he'll be counted on to provide the Titans with an experienced veteran backup option behind franchise QB Marcus Mariota.

Cassel finished the 2015 season with 1276 passing yards and a 5:7 TD:INT ratio in eight games.

EDGE Analysis

His 58.3 percent completion rate and 6.3 YPA were also poor, and he eventually lost the starting job to Kellen Moore, who wasn't much better. Given the struggles the Cowboys had this season when Tony Romo went down, expect them to address their backup QB position in a significant way in the offseason, either in the draft or by acquiring an upgrade elsewhere.

Cassel will serve as the Cowboys' backup quarterback with Kellen Moore named the starter for Sunday's game at Buffalo, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cassel was afforded the first four drives of Saturday's loss to the Jets, before head coach Jason Garrett exchanged the veteran for the untested Moore. If Cassel doesn't make another appearance this season, he'll finish as Dallas' leading passer with 1,276 yards. However, the mark accompanies a 58.3% completion percentage and five touchdowns versus seven interceptions, which likely won't translate to more than a reserve role, wherever he lands in 2016.

Cassell was pulled from Saturday night's game early after completing 3-of-8 passes for 37 yards and an interception.

EDGE Analysis

Caseell was reportedly on a short leash and that proved to be true. He led the Cowboys on a field-goal drive, followed by an interception and two three-and-outs. Kellen Moore came in for him and went 15-of-25 for 158 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

Cassel will be "on a short leash" Saturday against the Jets, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Jason Garrett announced Monday that Cassel would remain his starter for Week 15 despite Cassel's 1-5 record as a starter, sub-60 percent completion rate and 5:6 TD:INT ratio. However, the team has reportedly been giving Kellen Moore some first-team reps in practice this week, and if Cassel struggles yet again, the coaching staff may consider a quarterback change. Moore has not played a snap in four NFL seasons.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Monday that Cassel would remain the starting quarterback despite the fact that the team is all but out of playoff contention, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cassel has been mostly awful, throwing more INTs than TDs with a 6.3 YPA and sub-60 percent completion rate while steering the Cowboys to a 1-5 record since he took over under center. Still, Garrett and the coaching staff feel that the veteran gives them a better chance to win than backup Kellen Moore, who hasn't thrown a snap in the NFL in four seasons. That could change once the team is officially eliminated from the postseason and the focus shifts to 2016, however.

Cassel completed just 13 of 29 passes for 114 yards with an interception in Sunday's 28-7 loss at Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Cassel once again struggled to get much going, and his interception came in the end zone on a long drive in the first quarter. Other than a three-touchdown performance against the Eagles in Week 9, he hasn't been much of a fantasy asset in the six games he's started this year. In fact, he's got just a 5:6 TD:INT ratio overall, which obviously doesn't inspire a lot of confidence for fantasy owners. It doesn't figure to get easier next week against a solid Jets' secondary.
