Kansas City Chiefs Sign Matt Cassel to a Long-Term Contract

I thought this might be coming today.

The Chiefs have signed Cassel to a multi-year contract, a source told The Star on Tuesday. Terms of the deal have not been released, although the team is expected to announce the deal today.

July 15th was the deadline for teams to sign franchise players to long-term contracts.  The language in the current CBA indicates "the player may sign only a one year player contract with his prior club for that season" after July 15th.  Inquiries to the league office regarding whether Cassel's "prior club" is Kansas City or New England weren't immediately returned.

The Chiefs are expected to announce the deal today according to Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star.

It's over!  Now let's see if Michael Lombardi's report that it includes $36 million guaranteed over six years is correct.

More to come...
