We need Tom Tupa Posted March 2, 2009 Report Share Posted March 2, 2009 http://www.sportingnews.com/blog/real_scou...y_keep_anderson Thanks Cassel, Browns May Keep Anderson Monday, March 02, 2009 Posted By Mike Florio 8:48 AM Here’s a potential bit of fallout from the trade that sent quarterback Matt Cassel to the Chiefs for only a second-round pick. With the Browns potentially shopping quarterback Derek Anderson, the fact that the Pats got only a second-rounder for Cassel (and also gave up linebacker Mike Vrabel) could make it very hard for the Browns to do as well or better in exchange for Anderson. Just as some claim that Cassel was/is a one-year wonder, Anderson was/is the same. In fact, Anderson is farther along his career arc, with that single stellar season coming in 2007 and the correction already taking root, to the point that he was benched last year for Brady Quinn. Making this situation even more intriguing is the fact that former Pats assistant and Belichick/Pioli Spygate nemesis Eric Mangini is the guy who might in the end be forced to keep Anderson (and pay out a $5 million guaranteed roster bonus) because the Browns can’t get the kind of trade package they want, because of the deal that Belichick and Pioli did for Cassel.
