Cowboys “Highly Likely” To Start Matt Cassel In Week 7

Jason Cole of B/R reports that Matt Cassel is “highly likely” to be the Cowboys’ starting quarterback coming out of their bye.

Head coach Jason Garrett said he plans to evaluate the quarterback position after their loss to the Patriots on Sunday.

Cole mentions that the issue for Brandon Weeden has been his inability to get the ball downfield, which was highlighted by a very dismal offensive performance in Week 5.

If there was ever a time to make a quarterback change, it would be this week, seeing as they’ll have additional time to prefer for their Week 7 game against the Giants.

Cassel, 33, was traded to the Cowboys in a deal that netted the Bills a 2017 fifth-round pick for him and a 2017 seventh-round pick.

Last year, Cassel appeared in three games for the Vikings and completed 57.7 percent of his passes for 425 yards, three touchdowns, and four interceptions.

We’ll have more regarding the Cowboys’ quarterback situation as the news is available.
