    Wow I'm the man. I predicted he was part of the package with Vrabel. I'm officially the best source of information there is now.

    Ok, gloating time over.

    Funny, now we have 2 of the best scrambling QBs in the league. I'm pretty happy with this. Thigpen was terrible when not in the spread offense, so at least we have multiple options now. And now we don't have to worry about drafting Stafford or Sanchez now.

    I'm extremely pleased if this trade didn't involve our #3 pick.

    I'm extremely curious what we gave up. Swap 1sts and a 3rd? A 2nd this year and a 1st in 2010? Our 1st this year?

    EDIT: And there's no way we pick Curry at 3 now. We're either getting Raji or getting Cassel a LTOTF.

    i don't think he'd give up the 1st round pick. then again, with there not really being a clear cut player to grab, he might have. :(

    Let's hope not though. Im ready for more details to leak.

    yep, this could either be a great trade or a bad trade depending on whether we get to keep the #3.

    Actually I bet we swapped 1st rounders and gave them 1 or 2 later round picks. If we end up with Alex Mack with a late 1st rounder, it wouldn't be terrible I suppose.

    Kind of curious because what player at #3 would the Pats be chasing? Curry perhaps.

    I dont like this trade for one reason. WE HAVE A HORRIBLE OFFENSIVE LINE! I do not think our line is at the point where any QB will be consistently successful.

    I hope we didnt give up too much for Cassel.

    Ideally I hope that this trade was:
    Pats: Vrabel, Cassel, 1st Round pick
    Chiefs: 1st Round pick

    That would at least give us the chance to get Robinson, or Mack or Unger and improve our OL.

    or:

    Pats: Vrabel, Cassel
    Chiefs: 2nd round this year, and conditional 2-4 next year.

    With this, I hope it gives us a chance to trade down in the draft. and pick up someone else's 2nd rounder and a later 1st rounder.

    I dont think these guys are worth anything more than that. Cassel is decent with a decent OL and playmakers around him. Take those away and I dont know. Lets hope he is still good. I cant help but remember in the preseason last year everyone was disappointed in the Patriots backup QBs.

    I still have hope for this offseason, but it is waning.

    No. 3 Pick Not Involved in Cassel Deal

    Posted by Tom Curran: Saturday, February 28, 2009 1:21 PM

    Turn my back for just a second and look what happens in here. Anyway, interrupting the PFT Invasion, I wanted to drop a nugget of info on the Cassel to KC deal. The Chiefs first round pick (No. 3 overall) is not part of this deal.
    I'll have a more fleshed out story up on the site shortly.
    Florio, back to you. Don't you people use coasters?!

    I dont see any way around it... we lost our 1st pick. I really wanted Curry too.

    But hey, we got good depth at QB (if this is finalized).
