One of my friends just emailed me an unofficial confirmation of more than $10 mil a year.

Wow! he had better pan out, or Haley might get run out of town after a couple seasons. I guess you could say the same thing here in Denver, but at least we have freed up some dollars this year.

it wouldn't make sense to do that...

they needed to get a deal done before the one year franchise tender hit...and the deadline for that is just around the corner...

no way they were gonna absorb 14-16 mil dollars for one year for that guy (cap hit of course)...

all in all though, the chiefs are going to regret ever going after that guy...

big mistake to give an avg QB that kind of money. KC will end up having to look elsewhere for a qb. Cassal just a product of a great team and great coaching.

I believe this is Piolis first big contract with someone who he brought in. This will set the tone for the future of the team. It's either a brilliant move by the new GM, or a complete bust. Much will be learned this coming season...

if the contract is really for 60 mil over six years, doesn't that make him higher paid than Tom Brady?...

that's just plain scary...

This is like us giving Orton a 60+ mil contract for 6 years. Neither guy has really proved anything anywhere.

That's a buttload of money...

Be interesting to see how Chiefs fan react to him if things don't go well this year. Jury is still out on whether Cassel is a long-term quality NFL starter, and going to a team with a much poorer supporting cast than he had in New England I can see him struggling at first.

Personally would have let him play with the tender. They have a low cap number as far as I know, so they could afford to absorb it for this year. Next year, you'll know a whole lot more about what you've got.

Has the market for resigning Orton after this type of season been set?

Yeah not too sure about their cap situation, didn't they recover some room when they traded Gonzalez?

Thats a lot of money. They must be convinced that Cassel is the answer.

Not exactly the same. Both Scott and Josh have had extensive experience with Matt. Kyle is an unknown to the Denver staff at this point.

Scott's quote earlier this offseason was, "There is only one Tom Brady...and there is only one Matt Cassell".

Right or wrong. Both Josh and Scott are willing to do almost anything to get Matt after working day in and day out with the guy. Surely they both can't be that bad of a judge of this guy after all that. Right? Right?

That's only like a 3rd of the crap room that KC had available this year. If Cassel gets that, I wonder what Rivers and Eli get on their extensions this year? I bet they both end up around $100m over 6.

I had already heard $100 mil for Eli about 2 months ago, so this will only solidify that IMO.

Cutler and Bus have to be loving this as well.
