Lions set to sign journeyman QB Matt Cassel Jersey
April 9, 2018
The Detroit Lions are bringing in a veteran quarterback to compete with Jake Rudock for the opportunity to back up Matthew Stafford.
According to multiple reports, the Lions have agreed to sign Matt Cassel. In a corresponding move, the team announced the release of quarterback Alex Torgersen, who spent part of last season on the practice squad.
Cassel, 35, spent his first four seasons with the New England Patriots before he was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009. He’s bounced around the league the past several years, playing for four teams in five season, including the past two with the Tennessee Titans.
The Texas Tech product should give the Ravens the possession receiver they’ve lacked since Steve Smith ruptured his Achilles in 2015. Over the previous year and a half after Smith joined the team, Joe Flacco had posted an 88.0 passer rating and a 63.2 Total QBR. After Smith went down, Flacco subsequently put up a 82.3 passer rating and a QBR of just 47.7. This is a archetype the Ravens haven’t been able to fill with guys like Breshad Perriman and Mike Wallace.
Crabtree doesn’t solve Baltimore’s receiving problems single-handedly, and there are reasons to think he might disappoint. Players with his lack of pure speed don’t have much margin for error; consider that Crabtree averaged 3.22 yards after the catch over his three seasons in Oakland, ranking 96th out of 103 wideouts.

Hogan follows Cody Kessler and DeShone Kizer out the door in Cleveland. The Browns acquired cornerback Damarious Randall as part of the Kizer trade with Green Bay that included flip-flopping fifth-round picks, and got a 2019 seventh-rounder from Jacksonville for Kessler.
Cleveland, which has the first overall pick in the draft, also traded with Buffalo for Tyrod Taylor, the expected starter, and signed veteran Drew Stanton to a two-year deal.
The 25-year-old Hogan has thrown for 621 yards, four touchdowns and seven interceptions and rushed for a score in eight games with Cleveland, including one start. The McLean, Virginia, native will compete with established No. 2聽QB Colt McCoy to back up recently acquired Alex Smith.
