The Kansas City Chiefs will likely be seeing Matt Cassel again in 2015.

The KC Chiefs former QB, who played the last two seasons in Minnesota, has been traded to the Buffalo Bills, according to multiple reports. The deal involves late round draft picks, according to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports.

So the Bills go one from one former Chiefs QB last year in Kyle Orton to another former Chiefs QB in Cassel. I question your strategy, Buffalo.

This means that, if he makes the team, Cassel will be traveling with the Bills to play the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium this year as the Chiefs and Bills meet for the eighth straight year. It's not clear yet what Cassel's role in Buffalo will be as the Bills still have former first round pick EJ Manuel on the team. Is this a sign that Cassel is the starter? Or will they compete? Cassel also played the Chiefs in the preseason last August.

Coached by Rex Ryan now, the Bills have had quite the 24-hour run. Late last night news broke that they were trading LB Kiko Alonso to the Eagles for RB LeSean McCoy. Now they pick up a new quarterback to go along with their new running back. It will be fun to see how this turns out. Rex will make them competitive.

Bills fans enthusiastically reacted to the move here:
