TAMPA -- Patriots QB Matt Cassel was back on "Radio Row" today at Super Bowl XLIII, and he was asked by New England reporters about the franchise tag figure of $14.65 million.
"I don't know, I really haven't put much thought into it," Cassel said. "The franchise tag is the franchise tag, and we'll see what happens."
Then, when it was pointed out to him that the $14.65 million would exceed Tom Brady's salary cap charge for 2009, he said "that's crazy".
Cassel was then whisked away by a marketing representative who was attempting to get Cassel to his next interview.
