Patriots Could Tag-and-Trade QB Cassel?

From: Boston Globe

Matt Cassel will be an unrestricted free agent, and it’s rare for 26-year-old quarterbacks with a solid season’s worth of starting experience to hit the open market. If the Patriots have concerns about Tom Brady’s injured left knee, they could assign the franchise tag to Cassel (a team signing him would have to surrender two first-round draft choices, which makes it highly unlikely he’d move). But that would tie up about $28 million of the projected $123 million salary cap, possibly handcuffing other moves. A tag-and-trade is also a possibility, which could give the Patriots some additional return on their investment
