Dallas Cowboys QB Matt Cassel will start in Week 15, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Huddle Up: Cassel has thrown for fewer than 186 yards in three of his last four starts with only TD pass during that span, but with untested Kellen Moore the only other option at the moment, it's up to the well-traveled veteran.

Dallas Cowboys QB Matt Cassel will start over QB Brandon Weeden in Week 7 against the New York Giants, according to ESPN and other media reports Tuesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Weeden has completed 72.4 percent of his passes and only has turned the ball over twice in 3 1/2 games. But at the same time, he's only guided the Cowboys to 26 points over the last 10 quarters, starting with the second half of the Week 3 loss to the Falcons, and the Cowboys basically have nothing to lose turning to Cassel after losing all three of Weeden's starts. Cassel last started in Week 3 of last season with the Vikings, but will have had roughly a month to learn the Cowboys' system by the time Week 7 rolls around.

Dallas Cowboys QB Matt Cassel could get a chance in Week 7 after the team's bye, as head coach Jason Garrett said Sunday, Oct. 11, he will evaluate a quarterback change during the team's bye week.
Huddle Up: Brandon Weeden has not been getting the job done for the Cowboys, and Tony Romo isn't coming back any time soon so to hang around in the NFC East Dallas needs a spark; maybe Cassel is the guy to provide it.

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel was acquired by the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday, Sept. 22. Dallas acquired Cassel and Buffalo's 2017 seventh-round draft pick for Dallas' fifth in 2017, sources said.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys wanted veteran insurance behind new starter Brandon Weeden, and the unproven Kellen Moore wasn't going to cut it. Moore, though, will be the No. 2 QB until Cassel gets up to speed on the offense.

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel was released Saturday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: Cassel thought he was safe but that's not the case. Cassel loses out to Tyrod Taylor and E.J. Manuel. He'll try to catch on with another team as a backup.

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel said the team has indicated that they will hold three quarterbacks on the roster heading into the regular season. Head coach Rex Ryan was vague on whether he will keep three quarterbacks. Cassel played in only four series in the preseason.
Huddle Up: Tyrod Taylor will begin the season as the Bills' starter. If Buffalo does keep three quarterbacks, it's anyone's guess who will come in should Taylor struggle or get injured. The smart money is on E.J. Manuel.

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel could be cut by the team, as they are internally discussing the option.
Huddle Up: Rex Ryan is all in on Tyrod Taylor, and the club is only a couple years removed from investing a first-round pick in EJ Manuel so he's not going anywhere, either. The veteran Cassel could catch on as a clipboard holder/insurance policy elsewhere, and the Bills may give him that opportunity sooner rather than later.
