Could Pats Franchise And Trade Cassel?

Dec 30, 2008 5:14 PM

The Patriots have to decide what to do with quarterback Matt Cassel, especially with Tom Brady's status for the 2009 season in jeopardy. One option would be for New England to franchise Cassel and then trade him, which would allow them to receive a return on their four-year investment rather than letting him leave for nothing. RealGM Note: Cassel was ranked 8th amongst quarterbacks in season FIC and 'deserved' to make $9.1 million, giving him a Reina Value of +1,739%.

Giants Eye Boldin To Replace Burress?

Dec 8, 2008 9:29 AM

The Giants could look to deal for Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin if Plaxico Burress is done in New York. Eli Manning no longer has a legitimate top threat without Burress, who could never take the field for the Giants again. Boldin was unhappy that Arizona didn't upgrade his contract last offseason, and could be upset once again if the Cardinals pass on giving him a big payday. New York, set at many positions, could offer a first rounder and a little more to the Cardinals for Boldin.
