Cassel’s franchise tender submitted to NFL

Let there be no more questions, doubts or speculation. It’s official.

The one-year, $14.6 million contract franchise tender that Patriots QB Matt Cassel recently signed was turned into the NFL today. Now that Cassel has signed, the speculation about whether he will be traded can begin.

The feeling around the combine is that it won’t be easy, but for the right price, New England would be willing to deal.
