Cassel franchise tag would cost Pats $14.65 million

I'm of the belief that the Pats have to let him go through free agency. I honestly didn't watch him play much and am interested if the Planet brain trust thinks he would be worth the financial investment required to make him a Chief.

Linky



If the New England Patriots want to keep Matt Cassel by giving him the franchise tag it will cost the team $14.65 million.

The Boston Globe reports that doing so would make Cassel higher-paid than Tom Brady, who next season is scheduled to have a $5 million base salary and also receive a $3 million roster bonus.

The Globe also says that signing Cassel to a one-year tender with the franchise tag would leave the Patriots designating 24% of their salary cap space to their quarterbacks.

Thursday is the first day teams can designate franchise players, and the Patriots will have until Feb. 19 to make a decision. The franchise tag can be applied to potential free agents, and is an average of the NFL's top five salaries at a given position.

However it works out, it's one more sign of the incredible rise that began for Cassel after Brady's knee injury in the season opener. He was paid only $520,000 this season, and let's not forget that when he took the Patriots' reins expectations for him were nil, and he was the target of scathing satire and sarcasm.

I know there's no way to know for sure if Brady's gonna be healthy by the season opener but I just can't see how they can do this. I mean, there could be a chance someone would trade for him but I don't think so. Then you're just stuck with an outrageously paid back-up.

What is really crazy is the fact that someone will give up the farm in the way of draft picks or Cassel's agent is going to expect a FA contract that will be worth 14 million guaranteed money.

They can franchise him.....so that he doesn't go to FA without getting compensation. If they get an offer that they like....they'll trade him. If they don't get an offer they like....I'm sure they'll give him a contract if Brady isn't ready and they'll make it much more cap manageable.

The article states they have until Feb. 19 to franchise tag him or not. I assume you are suggesting that they will try and work a contract with him before then to make the cap more manageable. I can't see why Cassel and his agent would accept less than the FA market or franchise tag will bear. Obviously the Pats would like to franchise him, then trade him and get the absurd compensation that comes along with the franchise tag. But, if they are unable to, they are left with a ton of $ tied up in two QBs.

They can franchise him and later remove the tag.

Depends on what Pioli thinks he is worth. He sure was high on him in his intro presser...

I have tried to find all the "rules" regarding the franchise tag without any black and white answers.

I would be willing to trade our 2nd round pick for him then move down and acquire a 2nd back. But giving up the #3 spot for him? NO WAY!
