New England Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel has been sent to the Kansas City Chiefs with Mike Vrabel for the Chiefs' second-round draft pick, 34th overall in the upcoming 2009 draft.

In Kansas City, it is expected that Cassel will start while Tyler Thigpen will be reduced to a backup role.

Hopefully this news confirms reports that Tom Brady is expected to make a full recovery by the time next season begins and that he will be starting for the Patriots.
