The NFL trade winds are blowing and after the trade between the 49ers and Chiefs for Alex Smith, rumors are swirling that Matt Cassel could be the next QB on the move.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Arizona Cardinals could be interested in acquiring Matt Cassel from the Chiefs.
Look for Matt Cassel to be one of the quarterbacks on the Cardinals’ radar. Cassel also will receive interest from other teams.

Cardinals new head coach Bruce Arians would have to change his passing scheme, which does have a reliance on the deep ball knowing Cassel’s arm is average at best. Cassel has also turned the ball over 30 times in his last 18 starts. Still, he might be a better option than what Arizona has right now at that position.
If the Cardinals make a move to acquire a veteran signal caller it would remove yet another quarterback needy team as a threat ahead of the Bills in this year’s draft with Kansas City acquiring Alex Smith. Arizona picks seventh overall, one spot ahead of Buffalo.
