Summary

New head coach Rex Ryan knew he had a massive issue at quarterback and traded for Matt Cassel to try and paper over it. Cassel is supposed to push third year quarterback EJ Manuel for the starting job but the situation is untenable enough to make it entirely possible he will win it, and handily. Cassel is no more than a game manager, but that was all Ryan ever really wanted in New York with the Jets - he just couldn't seem to really find one. Cassel has a shot to be the starter in Buffalo, and with Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin and Robert Woods to throw to, that's not just whistling Dixie. However his own limitations only really leave him as no more than a backup in mist leagues if he wins the job, someone to grab late in a fantasy draft for a cheap bye week filler. (May 16)
