As for Cassel as a backup, why in the world would we pay $7.5M for him to be a backup? There are more talented veterans out there. I still wonder if the Chiefs will look into Kolb (as a backup). Not saying that's a great decision, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Cards cut ties with him and there's the obvious Reid connection. I feel like he could be had at a high-priced veteran contract.
Why give up a higher pick for Foles when you could potentially get the same thing out of a late round draft pick this year?
When you trade higher picks for QBs on somebody else's rosters you're creating an expectation that they won't be the BACKUP.
