Lions' Matt Cassel: Moves to No. 2 on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cassel has surpassed Jake Rudock for the No. 2 spot on the Lions' quarterback depth chart, Kyle Meinke of reports.

Cassel had been working behind Rudock during OTAs, but it appears a late swap on the depth chart has occurred. The veteran signal-caller has plenty of experience under his belt, appearing in 15 or 16 games in three straight seasons from 2008-10. There's still a lot of preseason remaining, but Cassel sits in good position as training camp approaches.

Lions' Matt Cassel: Slated to back up Stafford
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions are slated to sign Cassel, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Cassel provides the Lions with a veteran backup option behind starter Matthew Stafford. Jake Rudock is also in the team's signal-caller mix, but the 35-year-old Cassel figures to have the upper hand for the No. 2 QB job, given his NFL starting experience (81 games since 2008).

Titans' Matt Cassel: Released by Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cassel was released by the Titans on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Cassel was horrific in his one fill-in start last season, throwing for 4.4 yards per attempt in a 16-10 loss to the Dolphins in Week 5. He'll turn 36 in May and may need to compete for a backup job if he decides to continue his career. The Titans are left with Brandon Weeden, Alex Tanney and Tyler Ferguson behind Marcus Mariota. The team likely will seek a backup QB upgrade in free agency or the draft.

Titans' Matt Cassel: Struggles as fill-in starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cassel completed 21 of 32 passes for 141 yards with a touchdown and a lost fumble in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Dolphins.

Two plays after having a 59-yard touchdown pass to Delanie Walker erased on an offensive pass interference penalty, Cassel had a strip-sack fumble returned for a 38-yard Miami touchdown. He failed to get Tennessee's wide receivers involved early, throwing 10 of his 12 first-half completions to tight ends or running backs as his team went into the break trailing 10-3. While he erased that deficit with an 11-yard touchdown to tight end Phillip Supernaw in the third quarter, Cassel was unable to produce any more points the rest of the way. It's clear the Titans need Marcus Mariota to come back from his hamstring strain as quickly as possible, as the 35-year-old Cassel doesn't have much left in the tank.

Titans' Matt Cassel: Draws start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cassel will start Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

With Marcus Mariota (hamstring) unavailable Sunday, at a minimum, Cassel will draw the start at QB for the Titans, with Brandon Weeden set to serve as his backup. Cassel completed four of 10 passes for 21 yards, with no TDs and two interceptions in relief of Mariota in last Sunday's 57-14 loss to the Texans. He's a speculative Week 5 fantasy lineup option, especially with the team's running back duo of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry capable of engineering a bounce-back effort after the team's collective dud in Week 4.
