This comes after the news that the Cowboys had Kellen Moore taking some first-team snaps during this week’s practice.
Multiple reports have confirmed that the Cowboys could bench Cassel should he struggle, which shouldn’t come as a big surprise, given his struggles since he replaced Tony Romo and the fact that they’re unlikely to be playing in the playoffs.
Cassel, 33, is in the final year of his contract and is in line to be an unrestricted free agent in 2016.
This season, Cassel has appeared in eight games and completed 59.2 percent of his passes for 1,239 yards, five touchdowns, and six interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 32 quarterback out of 37 qualifying players.
