There has been an awful lot of speculation about Matt Cassel’s roster status since Tyrod Taylor was named the starting quarterback. When he was asked for his thoughts on his current situation Cassel was straightforward.
First, Cassel was asked if he had any tenuous feelings about his spot on the 53-man roster.
“Not at all. No,” he said. “There’s been no indication that way.”
When asked if he’s been given indication that the team will keep three quarterbacks, Cassel offered this response.
“I hope that they can,” he said. “Whether or not they will is probably a question you’d have to ask them, but right now that’s what I’m planning on.”
And the third question was whether or not he felt he got a fair shot in the quarterback competition after getting just a handful of series in the preseason games and the majority of the first team reps in practice.
“That’s neither here nor there. We went through an entire offseason, we competed,” said Cassel. “At the end of the day I did the best I could with the reps I got. They made a decision to go in a different direction. The decision being made now rather than this week or next week, I think the right decision was made. I’m excited for Tyrod, he gets an opportunity obviously, and at the same time, I’ve got to get ready to go and get ready to play.”
