Chiefs Deal for Cassel

UNDATED (AP) -- The Kansas City Chiefs have acquired quarterback Matt Cassel and linebacker Mike Vrabel (VRAY'-bul) from the New England Patriots in a trade for their second-round draft pick.

Cassel was the backup in New England before two-time Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady was injured minutes into last season's opener. Cassel hadn't started a game since high school but helped lead the Patriots to an 11-5 record that fell just short of a playoff berth.

The Patriots had tagged Cassel as their franchise player. That means they would have to pay him $14.5 million to keep him on the roster as insurance should Brady have a setback in his recovery.
